Yoga Begins With You

Yoga Begins with You

No two people see art the same way. This is true for yoga, as every journey is personal according to our own experiences and life challenges. Our yoga training offers the space and support for you to evaluate your own path first, and then continue to hone your skillset professionally if you so choose.

About Us

Our Programs Offer

  • An evaluation and online prerequisites (you can take concurrently) to give you a firm foundation

Welcome

“I invite you to experience a yoga that cannot be boxed into one style. This is not a cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all School. These core Yoga teacher training certifications are heavily influenced by a love of Western Philosophy, Buddhism, a respect for my Hindu and Native American ancestry, and also draws from my own experience. No two programs will ever be alike, because the training is about YOU.  This path is the greatest challenge and the most rewarding for those who have the grit to see it though.”

Customized Instruction For All

It is important people who want to instruct take the time to learn a variety of tools and techniques to approach a class. A teacher who can evaluate where a student is at and match their goals with the planned learning outcome is important. It’s time we stop approaching yoga students as if “one technique fits all”.
Here at Amara Vidya we believe in spending time evaluating what a student needs and exploring different ways of helping them get there.

We accept rolling applications for all our updated programs.

What People Are Saying

“After over 20 years in practice as an RMT, I was looking for new rehab ideas for clients and a way to deepen my personal practice. Comparing different teacher training, I was drawn to Amara Vidya because of the focus on safety and individual attention to students. I have loved incorporating yoga into my treatment plans for clients and they have benefited greatly from getting to the root cause of postural imbalances.”

Erin

Yoga Teacher and RMT

“Chantel puts her whole heart into her teachings. Amara Vidya encourages you to grow, explore and experience the world of yoga. This course has given me the tools and confidence to share my knowledge of yoga with others. The material this course covers is invaluable! I’m truly grateful for the knowledge I gained from Chantel!”

Vicki

Teacher

“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.”
