We are thrilled to be hosting Brenda Feuerstein (see short bio below), the internationally known Yoga teacher

other than Friday evenings will be held for training students.
All training will take place at Tapestry Yoga Studio and taught by lead trainer - Brenda L Feuerstein, Director of Traditional Yoga Studies, Author, Inter-national Presenter, E-RYT® 500, YACEP®

Upon successful completion of the training program you will receive a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate and will be certified through Traditional Yoga Studies. We are currently working on our registration with the Yoga Alliance and we will keep you updated during the training. Normally the process takes about 8 - 12 weeks to finalize. Please note: this program exceeds Yoga Alliance requirements.

Three options depending on why you are taking the training:
Option 1 - Sign up for the entire program:
Before February 1, 2020 - 2900.00 plus taxes

Fees include TYS Training Manuals and an online anatomy course as well as in-person sessions during the training. Accommodations, meals, transportation and required text books are not included.
A non-refundable deposit of 700.00 plus GST and PST is required at registration. Payment plans are available on request. Students are required to make the upfront registration payment after their application is accepted. That covers the online anatomy segment, the philosophy Manual which you get when you sign up with commitment to the program - payment plan or full payment. After that we work with students to find a payment plan that works for them but the total would need to be paid for prior to graduation. If there are people who need to go beyond that time frame,
it is possible but you wouldn't receive a certificate until it's paid in full.
