Naada Yoga 200 Hour Foundation Teacher Training (In studio/Online)
Start date: Oct 20, 2021
The 200hr Foundation training program is designed to make the deeper aspects of yoga accessible to people of all ages and physical abilities. Whether you plan to teach yoga or develop your own personal practice, this program provides the knowledge and tools necessary to impart this living practice onto others, safely, skillfully and with integrity. Students who complete the 200hr foundation program will have gained a tremendous insight into the world of yoga and establish an internationally recognized accreditation as well as the foundation for a complete NYTT 500hr certification.
How the NYTT 200 hr Foundation Program Works:
Students wanting to apply for a 200 Hour Foundation certification must register first for the full training and then are free to complete the course at their own pace. The entire program can be completed over a period of one to two years maximum. Once all 4 NYTT modules have been successfully completed, in addition to all exams, and practicum hours, you will be eligible to receive your 200 Hour NYTT certification as standardized by the Canadian and American yoga alliances.

Naada Yoga has three core values: Passion, Inclusiveness & Action. To date we have seen visible results in the areas of passion and action, while inclusiveness remained a more nebulous concept; achieved by including individuals from across many races/ages/industry sectors.
During a 2017 series of workshops and discussions hosted by the Yoga Mala Foundation, it came to our attention that, due to longstanding structures and systems in our society, leadership opportunities and programs like ours may have been viewed as less than inclusive. This scholarship program is meant to break down such barriers, making Naada Yoga’s teacher training program a more equitable opportunity for all. With all of this in mind Naada Yoga is continually taking steps to ensure that our school and our teacher training program participants and graduates reflect the diversity of our community.
