This course is designed for new and experienced students who are looking to immerse or teach yoga. It is a great option for those interested in staying local to B.C this summer, craving a challenge and wanting to sink their teeth into an intense education in the art and science of yoga. It will indeed be a lovely time with in such a wonderful space. I just know it!

It is my mission to make all of my programs an investment of your time and money.  I promise to keep it as fun as possible while maintaining integrity, tradition and modernity – all infused with your personality. This is the fifteenth time I will be running the course. We will spend 21 days in total. A typical day will include a three to four hour morning practice (please note, select mornings will be open to the public as an immersive adventure)  – power vinyasa based practice, pranayama, meditation, an overview of yoga history, philosophy, Sanskrit/mantras/chanting, practice teaching, posture clinics, anatomy, subtle anatomy and much more. There are three pre-requisite readings: Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Anatomy of the Spirit. Each book interweaves with each module and will help you develop a whole new language with yoga.

About North Yoga, Squamish:
North Yoga is tucked in the windy corridor of Squamish, B.C, owned by a dynamic duo incoming from Vancouver, Gabriel Shamash, inspiring yoga teacher and his rockstar honey who also sings/keyboards for Mother Mother, Jasmin Parkin. Their vision is refreshing and radical. The studio space is peaceful and bright with stunning mountain views, hard wood floors and plenty of candles to keep it aglow on rainy days. If weather permits we will be also be doing the odd afternoon day trip to sit and study together at some of the town’s gorgeous landmarks.

Morning Intensives Option for other students: This option is for any students interested in joining any mornings during the month. You can do as few as one or all sessions. It is excellent for students who want to get stronger on the mat and want to skip the afternoon certification. Be ready for a wallop of a challenge on the mat! There is no certification linked with this option but expect a hearty practice as this is a teacher training you are dropping into. It will be a three practice of empowered asana, pranayama, mantra/chanting and 20-30 minute meditation. The style of yoga is a powerful vinyasa style pulsing between static and fluid movements (influences of Ashtanga, Anusara, Kundalini and Ana Forrest).  It is a challenging and fun practice with the inclusion of traditional practices, breath-work, mantra and cleansing kriyas.

We spend around 150 hours or so together – the Yoga Alliance calls these “Contact Hours”. The remaining hours are considered “Non-Contact Hours.”  For example, assigned readings, homework, practice teaching when I’m not around to supervise are considered Non-Contact. As for teaching, it’s a personal decision for many – some prefer to stay put as a student, for others it is a strong call. Either way, it’s an education you won’t regret.

There are many methods of yoga that essentially lead us all to the same place – which is why I find it difficult to label my school to one “type” of yoga. I will prepare you to teach a strong, flow, sometimes called a “power” or vinyasa style class. You can expect a great deal of attention will be paid to alignment, clarity and method during our time together.

EXTRAS: Gabe will fill you in or add-ons to your training experience, i.e purchasing juice cleanse kits during our week etc…stand by as he is ironing these details out!
