October 21, 2023 – April 21, 2024
YOU LOVE YOGA! and whether you’ve been practicing 9 months or 9 years, you may want to keep exploring yoga in new ways – both on and off your mat.
The Yogatown Yoga Teacher Training may be the perfect way to do that.
If you want to expand your practice, start a new career, or connect with your yoga family in a deeper way, teacher training is an incredible personal growth experience.
Is it “Hot” Yoga Teacher Training?
Yogatown offers classes in a heated room, but our teacher training is not exclusive to those wanting to teach heated classes. Our teacher trainees are given the knowledge, skills and a solid foundation to teach in a variety of settings.
Our Unique Format
Yogatown’s Yoga Teacher Training is truly a unique experience.
Our ultimate goal has always been to provide participants with the best yoga teacher training possible. Over the years we’ve explored several different formats, and feel confident that our current programming and format deliver the best training possible.
Our training is a 250 hour program. It consists of 200+ direct in-person hours along with 50+ hours of home study. This training is conveniently held on weekends, making it accessible for those needing to balance training alongside family and work obligations. Meeting every other weekend also allows ample time to digest, process and apply the teachings to your life.
We have some of the most experienced teachers in the city – each with their own unique style and area of expertise. Your teacher trainers include Tracy Billows, Jen Pakuts, Kelly Cameron, Dana Wemyss, Jovette Carey, Kathryn Flynn, Jason Billows and more! The combination of carefully chosen instructors and their breadth of knowledge and experience is what makes for such an incredibly valuable curriculum.
The Yogatown Teacher Training program is about SO much more than yoga poses. It truly is a journey of personal growth and self discovery. Throughout this program you’ll make lifelong friends and will learn and grow in ways that you’ll carry with you both on and off your mat for many years to come.
Of course, you’ll also become a certified yoga teacher.

Q – What if I’m not sure I want to teach?
A – You can absolutely still participate in the training, even if you don’t plan on teaching. Generally the group ends up being about 1/3 want to teach, 1/3 aren’t sure, 1/3 do not want to teach. The training truly is about so much more than just teaching – it really is an immersive yoga experience. You’ll learn a lot about yourself and your practice will evolve and grow, whether you teach or not. You might even surprise yourself during the training and feel inspired to teach when it’s all over!
Q – I can’t touch my toes or do an arm balance or handstand or other advanced poses. Is that ok?
A – YES and YES. There are absolutely no prerequisites or requirements in terms of poses – as long as you are eager to learn, participate to the best of your ability and have an open mind, you can do this. The real beauty about this immersive yoga experience is you’ll discover it’s about SO much more than just the poses.
Q – How will I fit this into my life?
A – We intentionally designed this program for those that still have other life commitments and responsibilities. That said, it is an immersive experience – there is reading, pre-work before some lectures, homework for others. The more time you carve out to dedicate to this experience, the more you’ll get out of it. We recommend about 5 hours per week dedicated to self-study. It’s very helpful to sign up early so that you can get the required reading list and get a good start on that well before our training begins.
Q – Are there any required readings?
A – Yes – and we’ll provide that reading list upon acceptance into the program.
