Hybrid Yoga Teacher Training Program

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.

SOYA’s Training Philosophy
Study the history and philosophy of different yoga paths, including Jnana, Bhakti, Raja, Karma and Hatha Yoga. Studies include the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Kriyas, Chakras, Meditation, Pranayama, Professionalism, and Anatomy.
Become firmly grounded in daily practice of kriya, asana, pranayama, and meditation. Every day is filled with traditional yoga practices as you learn to take your yoga off the mat and into your every day life.
Start practice teaching on day one in a safe and supportive setting. Create a series of lesson plans that suit your style and students. Your teaching practicum will prepare you to immediately start teaching upon graduation, with on-going support from SOYA faculty.

About the Immersion component:
Our 10hr days will be filled with philosophical discussions and teaching practice. This is a time to share and teach together for deeper understanding, leading up to the practical and written exams. There will be a closing gathering to celebrate your graduation as a new 200hr or 300hr Yoga Teacher!
If you are unable to join the retreat in person, you may “retreat” at home along with your group by joining them live online. It is important you reserve this “retreat time” and create your own uninterrupted retreat setting for its duration.
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.”
