Welcome

I invite you to come experience the unique community of individuals that has blossomed here in the Thousand Islands. Join us for our 200 hour yoga teacher training program which is heavily influenced by my love of Western Philosophy, Buddhism, and draws from my own personal exploration of my distant Hindu and Native American ancestry. I believe in designing a program that delves into your most personal journey and cultivates your assets to become strong in how you approach your practice. No two trainings will ever be alike, because it is about who comes to the training that is of the highest value.
-Chantel Ehler, Founder

Excellent school with an emphasis on teaching yoga that is accessible to everyone. As a RMT, this training was the perfect complement to my current practice, and included in-depth training on informed consent, boundaries, and yoga from a functional movement point of view, vs compensatory movement. The facilitators are personally invested in your success, and are wonderful at touching base to make sure students are feeling confident, and not having any questions.

200hr Certified

I am a YTT200 certified Amara Vidya teacher. This is the teacher training I was waiting for! It is so inclusive and is a training for teachers to understand how to teach ALL people that want to practice yoga. I loved that it didn’t take long, that it was 2, 9 day intensives with assignments in-between so that the training didn’t take months to complete. Chantel and her mentors were always available for questions, and still continue to be part of my life.
