Hybrid Yoga Teacher Training Program

Meeting live via Zoom for 20 weeks and then concluding with an Immersion Retreat for one week. 

Option for students to “retreat” for the week from home (or other chosen location) and participate live online. 

SOYA has been thrilled with the accessibility we have found in sharing yoga online in a live small group format. We also recognize the value and joy that comes with gathering in person. We are excited to share a new program that blends the best of our online and immersion programs!

Become firmly grounded in your daily yoga practice while learning to teach kriya, asana, pranayama, and meditation with SOYA’s Foundational 200hr. Want more? Deepen your knowledge with the Professional 300hr Upgrade to RYT500!

The same wonderful curriculum that has evolved for over 25 years is shared in this very modern and accessible format. Private online groups create connections between fellow students, while ongoing support from the lead trainers makes these rich and transformative trainings.

It is important you reserve this “retreat time” and create your own uninterrupted retreat setting for its duration.

Sarah shares about her 200hr training experience in 2020. 

The Hybrid Yoga Teacher Training has the exact curriculum as the Online, Immersion and Weekend programs. Typically the online portion of the Hybrid training is held 1-2 days per week, 5 hours per day. Additional videos and assignments are to be completed on your own time. We offer programs on both weekdays or weekends to accommodate working life.


“Due to COVID, I completed my training online via zoom. I don’t know training for the 200 hour any different, but I wouldn’t have changed my experience. I got to meet wonderful souls throughout BC and into Alberta and if it wasn’t for Zoom, that wouldn’t have happened. Our instructors were so supportive and patience as we navigated the new format and I feel like we left our training experience as prepared as any in-person group would have.”
