Yoga Teacher Training

The Fernwood Yoga Den facilitates several 200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings every year as well as advanced specialty certification programs. Our studio is a Non-Profit organization owned and operated by the Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource group. Proceeds from all classes, programs and trainings at our studio support local family housing, childcare, and food security initiatives on a grass roots level. Making yoga accessible to everyone is the cornerstone of our studio and programming since opening our doors nearly 8 years ago. We are currently partnered and supported by Lululemon’s “Here to Be” project. The project recognizes our studio as a non-profit organization making yoga and meditation tools available to individuals facing barriers including survivors of violence and trauma. Our trainings are a wonderful way to deepen your own practice and knowledge and learn ways in which yoga can make a broader social impact.

These programs are perfect for individuals looking to enrich their understanding of yogic principles and philosophies, deepen their personal practice and learn ways to share these transformational tools with others.
