The warm and supportive atmosphere, choice location, comparably affordable investment (for a 22-day fully residential in-person program) and small group size (maximum of 18 participants) creates an engaging and memorable training experience. Watch our welcome video here.

Residential immersion in a “retreat” setting invites a deep dive into the material and supports seamless integration of the learning. It is an ideal option for those coming from away and for those seeking an accredited training that provides a teaching certification within a 2-month period.

Moving from thinking

and doing,

through feeling

to being...

We believe yoga is a science, a lifestyle and an art - a living, breathing dance of personal and spiritual transformation.

Atlantic Yoga Teacher Training (AYTT) was the first registered 200-hour yoga teacher training program in Atlantic Canada and has been operating since 2000 with highly skilled facilitators, guest teachers and senior advisors.

"The methods allowed me to feel fully confident to teach yoga. I was enriched by the program in ways I never would have imagined. Co-listening and open-hearted sharing were most beneficial. Knowledge can be gained by books but the creation of a genuine supportive and fully accepting sangha is difficult to create, and it was masterfully done."

~ Kathleen Manson, Graduate
