A YOGA TEACHER IN THE 21ST CENTURY

At NU yoga we never teach the same flow twice. Learn how to create flows on the fly while keeping your classes fresh every time.

As the world changes, so must we. Looking toward the future, amidst this NU normal, the requirements and expectations of a yoga teacher are different from the reality we have been used to. NU LEVEL 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training offers modules that are often overlooked, such as Advanced Sequencing, Social Media Marketing, and Anti-Oppressive Yoga.

 

Through a virtual LIVE format, we will maximize our time together going beyond the requirements of Yoga Alliance. We will deliver this experience maintaining both the depth of learning and personalized experience one should expect in a Yoga Teacher Training. 

Learn how to level up your online presence and dive into deeper learning through inquiry work that will provide you with

NU Skills on and off the mat. 

 

Sweat, Strength, and Soul is our foundation here at NU yoga. Our teachers encourage you to step onto your mat with resilience and determination of body and mind. With this foundation at the forefront of the training, our uniquely qualified squad of trainers will teach you how to level up and lead with conviction as an empowered NU yoga teacher.

REQUIREMENTS

Full participation is required to complete the program. This is a content-heavy curriculum that requires your commitment to seeing it through until the end.

All assignments, quizzes, and independent studies must be completed and evaluated by the lead trainer.

Once requirements are complete and tuition is paid in full, students will be acknowledged as a NU LEVEL yoga teacher. Our yoga teacher certification is designed to fulfill the requirements necessary to become a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher (RYT). Graduates can apply for Yoga Alliance certification once they have received their NU certificate.

ANDREA
GAUNCE

My yoga journey began while searching to fill a void after retiring from a childhood of competitive dance. For me, yoga was love at first breath. I love the balance of backbends and forward folds, stretching and strengthening, work and relaxation. Yoga is the full package for me! I believe yoga is for every body type and level, whether it’s your 1000th yoga class or your 1st. My goal is to have the practitioner explore their body, safely finding their own edges, both physically and mentally.

AMANDA
DONATO

Amanda gravitated to yoga as a way to cope with a wave of debilitating anxiety in 2014. As a professional dancer and choreographer, the physical practice resonated immediately. It was liberating to move in a non-performative way and there were clear gradual improvements in alignment, mobility and awareness as a result. Mentally, things seemed way more spacious. Amanda completed her Yoga Teacher Training in 2015, and has continued to lead classes locally and internationally. Her teaching style is always evolving, but is forever playful and intuitive.

TIM
KENNEDY

Growing up immersed in gymnastics and dance, I've always been intrigued on how the body looks, feels and preforms. I have studied the mind body connection through: Musical Theatre, obtained a Natural Health license majoring in Aromatherapy and Reflexology, Reiki Master certified, Baptiste Power Yoga trained, Level 3 Thai Bodywork, and currently becoming a Registered Massage Therapist by 2020. As a Holistic therapist, I believe studying the body as a whole is the only way to find balance and source out the core issues that cause discomfort or dis-ease.

HEATHER
CATUIZA

Fourteen years of practice, four years of teaching, and a lifetime of learning: that's me in a nutshell, your friendly neighbourhood yogi.  I've taught in the GTA and Southeast Asia teaching Hatha, and have grown my yoga through shifting towards a practice that encourages being in stillness and managing self-distraction. Yin and Restorative teaches us how to balance the hectic pace of the outside world with the quiet of our inner selves — a concept that is challenging, sometimes uncomfortable, but altogether powerful and rewarding.
