Event description

Description

Yoga School is a Toronto-based 200 hour yoga teacher training and self-development program led by Shawna Turner. This program is for those looking to teach, as well as those simply looking for an opportunity to spend some time in personal study and reflection.

Shawna is walking wisdom in woman form. She has a magical quality of energy. Soothing and supportive, while challenging growth. She is kind and cares. A recent Yoga School graduate wrote: “My first class with Shawna was the first time I realized that yoga was so, so much more. Her poetic nature and ability to ignite the personal fire created a powerful combination that moved me to find my path to self discovery. Her knowledge of the physical and subtle bodies is extensive and she teaches with an openness and honesty that awaken the heart and the student within us all”.

As a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor, Shawna offers classes, workshops, retreats and mentorships. She felt like the time she had together with her students “was just getting started and then it's time to move on. It simply doesn't feel like enough. So! I want more”. She wanted more and so she created Yoga School.

Yoga School is a unique program that evolves as you evolve. This is for the change-makers.

Shawna says: “I'd like to teach you the tools to continue on a path of self-discovery. To receive some sort of insight into your own world, the yoga world and the world around you. To be inspired to keep on learning. To be infused with enough passion and curiosity to continue to ask questions - to continue to brush up against the edge of challenge in order to grow. I want you to leave the training with enough know-how and courage to share what you've learned with others. Not necessarily in a class setting (although you will be prepared for that), but to share it with your partner, your family, co-workers, friends and community. To embrace the practice with such openness that it seeps into your cells and oozes out in the way you speak, think and behave. I want this to ignite change. Not just to become a yoga teacher, but to truly embrace a yogic lifestyle. One filled with more compassion, ease and grace”.

What you will learn in Yoga School includes:

  • Physical Anatomy
  • Functional Anatomy

In the words of another Yoga School graduate: “Yoga School is more than a course. It’s more than a certification. It’s an introduction to another way of being. It’s an open door into a community of like-minded individuals. It’s an invitation to push the limits of what you thought was possible. It is a place where laughter, encouragement, love and self-discovery abounds”.

The program takes place here in Toronto and is run in a weekly format from September to April with four intensive weekends. The cost is $3200 + hst, with payment plans available. Find more information in our website.

Yoga School is an experience that “will seep into your bones and become apart of you, leaving you a better human than before”. It really is just like going back to school, only the subject, is you.
