May 15, 2016 - Jun 26, 2016

 The Advanced training course takes the yoga teacher or advanced yoga student to the next level and is suitable for both the existing teachers or just serious practitioners who would like to deepen their knowledge and strengthen their practice. The six week or 300 hour course consists of three modules, which are 100 hours each, or two weeks in duration and is registered with the Yoga Alliance. Trainees can obtain an RYT-500 certification upon successful completion of the course. In order to obtain the RYS-500 certificate, trainees are required to complete all three modules, or sIx weeks of training. However, you do not have to complete all three modules at once, you have an option to take all modules separately and complete them over a longer period of time.
First module will focus on Asana and the Art of Sequencing, and is an absolute must for any existing teachers willing to truly understand how and why asanas should be arranged for a balanced outcome, and how to teach different sub-styles of hatha yoga. The foundation course and the first module of the advanced course is the absolute minimum requirement for set out by Vikasa Yoga for asana teachers.
Second module will focus on Pranayama and Energetic Body, which, of course is an essential part of haha yoga practice and should be learned and practiced by each serious practitioner of yoga. Here the trainees will have a chance to establish a steady daily pranayama routine, learn and practice control of energy through breathing techniques correctly, including breath retentions and the energetic locks, or the bandhas.
The third module is called Meditation - the Soul and Spirit, and of course, as the name implies, will focus on more subtle mental practices, such as concentration, working with attention and awareness. Also, during this course, the practice of mudras will be introduced. Mudras are complete forms of asanas, where breath retentions, bandhas and internal orbits are used all together, therefore uniting all elements of practice and making it complete. As you can see, the focus progressively shifts from practicing on more physical levels (asana), to more subtle levels, such as energetic (pranayama), and mental (concentration, meditation), therefore following the method.
The courses are taught in the Vikasa Yoga method, which is briefly described above, and you can refer to the training matrix to see an overview of the topics covered, or proceed to a dedicated page with a full description of the course and each of the modules in detail.

Exploring Chair Yoga
Jun 26, 2016
3:00PM - 5:30PM

Exploring Chair Yoga
With Sylvia Smallman
Sunday, June 26, 2016, 3-5:30 pm
Stretch Vancouver, 180 E. Pender St.
$45 ($22 for Yoga Outreach volunteers)

Chair yoga is an excellent adaptation allowing more people to enjoy the benefits of the practice without getting up and down from the floor. Every body is different and everyone moves within their own comfortable range of motion. Balance and fall prevention may be addressed by some standing work behind the chair. Join us for this opportunity to participate in a chair yoga practice as well as workshop ideas, challenges and applications for integrating chair yoga into your practice, whether you lead a chair yoga class or would like more skills and support around facilitating a mat class with one or more participants in a chair, as is often the case within Yoga Outreach programs.


Foundational to Sylvia Smallman’s yoga teaching philosophy is kripalu (compassion) and sukha (comfort and ease). She is dedicated to making yoga more accessible to more people. Using the therapeutic and restorative wisdom of yoga as a holistic healing practice, Sylvia provides students of all ages, levels and mobility the opportunity to experience the benefits of yoga – physically, mentally and spiritually. Sylvia teaches yoga that ties ancient wisdom to modern times, reminding us that yoga offers practical tools that can help us ride the waves of life.

Holding Space
With Nicole Marcia
Sunday, October 9, 2016, 2-6 pm
Stretch Vancouver, 180 E. Pender St
$75 ($35 for Yoga Outreach volunteers)

Most teacher trainings provide teachers with the essential foundations for conducting public classes but often leave graduates without more in-depth training in negotiating the teacher/student relationship . Yoga teachers may lack an understanding community to address questions about their work, debrief difficult teacher/student relationships and discuss ethics. In this workshop participants will gain a theoretical and experiential foundation in the unique qualities of the teacher/student relationship as it pertains to yoga teaching in diverse settings, personal and professional boundaries, self care and what it means to teach from a strengths-based, trauma-informed place.

Nicole Marcia has been a yoga teacher, yoga therapist and trainer since 2004. In 2009, she was awarded a master’s degree with a specialization in yoga therapy from Lesley University in Boston, MA. She is the yoga therapist at the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addictions, where she works with in-patient clients in various stages of recovery from mental health and addiction issues. She is the director of training at Yoga Outreach, and a faculty member at Ajna Yoga therapy School, Langara College Continuing Studies, Stenberg College and the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage.
