What is Evolving Consciously?

​Evolving Consciously is a program designed to guide us to the

remembrance of the fundamental expression of Oneness.  With the

beautiful merging of spirit and science, we embrace traditional yoga

teachings and time-honoured methods of healing. This course is

 

integrative, compelling and relevant for yoga teaching today.  "Move away

from the box of yoga instructor and into the seat of Yoga teacher."

 

We offer a program that is rich and experiential, which invites you to sink

into the heart of the practice through dedicated studentship and self-inquiry.

Evolving Consciously gives you a broader and deeper set of skills and

insights to bring into your practice and teaching. The 'advanced' quality of

this training is not merely about so-called advanced asanas, but rather

leads us on the admirable path of self-discovery. Here we peel back the

layers, allow room for vulnerability, and reveal the truth of who we are.

 

​Who is this training for?

The Evolving Consciously course is designed for yoga teachers and

committed practitioners who are ready to deepen their understanding of the

practice, the Self,

and the field of Consciousness.

 

​Our 300-Hour Yoga Alliance Registered program allows teachers with a

200-Hour certificate from any other Yoga Alliance recognized school to

then be eligible for their RYT-500 upon successful completion.  If your initial

200-hour program was not Yoga Alliance certifiable, you can still participate

in our program, but will not be eligible to register as a RYT-500

through Yoga   Alliance.  If you are simply a dedicated student with no 200-

hour certification but are drawn to this course, we welcome you and will

support your learning as well.  Our 300-hour curriculum is designed to

deepen and enrich your experience both as a practitioner of yoga and as a

teacher of this powerful and transformational practice.

 

​***Our program allows TWO YEARS  for completion, so if there is a

module or two that doesn’t work for you time wise, you can always

join us the following year for completion and full certification of the

program.  Additionally all our modules are set up as 'individual pods'

meaning you can join our training at any time and be right on track.***
