Yoga Teacher Training & Certification
What makes us unique?
We check all the boxes. Ageless Arts Yoga is a Yoga Alliance (Y/A) Registered School. Our 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training (RYT-200) not only meets but exceeds the Y/A guidelines.
It is our mission to make yoga accessible to everybody and every body.
- Have you ever wondered why you struggle your way into an Asana (pose), while another person transitions with ease?
- Have you wondered why another student holds an Asana in such an awkward, uncomfortable way rather than relaxing or stretching into it like you do?
- Are you confused about how some people can close their eyes and sit to meditate when your monkey mind is running wild, and your body can’t find stillness?
Ageless Arts Yoga teacher training helps you to fully understand your body, as well as the challenges and eases that other bodies may face.
To learn more about what the RYT 200 entails, you can visit the Yoga Alliance website. To learn more about why Ageless Arts Yoga is unique, send us an email at email@example.com

YTT 200 Certification
At Ageless Arts, YTT 200 course students will study a blend of integrated yoga techniques including traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Kripalu, Restorative Yoga and more. This training will weave together the physical, mental, emotional, philosophical and energetic aspects of yoga while addressing a variety of topics from classical yoga:
- Learning about the 8 limbs of yoga
- Breaking down 32 asanas (postures)
- Practicing meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques)
- Experiential anatomy in relation to yoga
- Studying ancient Sanskrit (the language of yoga)
- Understanding yogic philosophy and ethics
In addition, students also have the opportunity to practice teaching on each other as well as on their own. They learn to create a safe yoga practice, to present themselves in the classroom, and conduct an inspirational yoga class. Most importantly, they can explore and deepen their own personal experience with yoga—even if they have no intention of teaching later.
This program is accessible to everyone over 16 years of age. No matter what your challenges (age, limited mobility, weight), you are welcome to attend. We believe that yoga is for everybody—and every body.
Programs are run three times a year, in a one-month intensive (40 hours per week), a 2×12 format (new for us!) and weekly over the school year.

Saturdays and Sundays will be time to complete homework assignments. In addition to the time in class with me, you will need to attend/practice an additional 20 hour of yoga. These 20 hours can be practising with one another, in your own homes, online videos, in another teachers class, DVDs or attending my classes in Kitchener/Cambridge. (You may start to track these classes upon registering for the program and can have as much time as you need after the session to complete as well.)
You will need to complete four (4) book reports along with a few additional homework assignments. Most are able to complete homework assignments in less than 10 hours. Deadlines for book reports, homework assignments and additional classes are to be set individually (to work with your personal schedule.) Once all are complete, you will receive your certificate.
Lunches will be a half hour long, and there are kitchen facilities available for use.
