Connected to My Confidence AND Purpose!
“I completed the 200-Hour Inspiring Spirit Program back in 2012 at Balance Life Yoga. That program alone was life changing, but I was craving more for the past few years!

The 300-hour Yoga Teaching Training brought my practice and mind to the next level. It gave me so much confidence and purpose not only as a women but also to start teaching Yoga, which is what I was truly looking for!”  
Jessica H. 
Even MORE Clarity, Confidence + Knowledge
The words thank you doesn’t seem enough to express my gratitude for the time, inspiration and one of the most amazing experiences in my life.
The 300-Hour Teacher Training came to me when I was in a beautiful place and in my own centre, but NOW I have EVEN MORE positivity, confidence, knowledge and inspiration in myself and in my teachings.  
Cindy L., Oshawa, On.
So Much More! Clarity and Confidence Beyond My Wildest Dreams!
I knew that the Teaching Mastery 300 HR YTT was going to be amazing based on my experience with the Inspiring Spirit Self Development & 200 HR YTT Program. However, I did not know just how AMAZING it was going to be! Every aspect of my life has improved since beginning the 300 HR training just a few months ago. 

I feel more clear and confident about my desires and boundaries in my career, relationship, family and friends. I have learned many skills and tools that help me every day to re-evaluate and find what is meaningful in my life, allowing me to take back the happiness and purpose that I was missing. 

My Balanced Life family has literally changed my life over the past 4 months, and I'm excited to see where else this amazing group of cheerleaders will encourage me to go moving forward!

3. Understanding the Mind + Mastering Meditation: Practices for Stress Reduction, Mind Mastery + Emotional Balance with Shasta. December 4-6, 2020
In this time of uncertainty and STRESS, one simple truth is becoming clear >> We must master our own mind!!!
Meditation is a powerful tool and this module offers a unique opportunity to experience the deeper wisdom of meditation for daily peace, deeper insight and spiritual transformation + know how to teach it!

You will learn:

• The Path of Meditation - What meditation truly is and why it is necessary as well as the many techniques + practices.

4. Advancing the Practice Through Movement, Stability + Strength with Shasta. December 18-20, 2020 
As teachers and practitioners, a sustainable, life-long yoga practice is something we all desire. 

Combining yogic wisdom with science-based movement (such as biomechanics and kinesiology) is a great way to ensure a balanced, health-affirming experience on the mat! 

This module will offer clear, practical ways to increase stability, mobility and strength in the practice of yoga. You will broaden your knowledge and perspective, drawing from movement science to help you connect with yoga in a whole new way.
Topics will include:
• examining where classical asana meets scientific research and how to incorporate best-practices into your teaching and practice
• dispelling myths and misinformation around core training, and understanding the core from a functional perspective
• strengthening core movements, postures, and sequencing for a core yoga class
• creative, effective ways to incorporate basic props and tools into class (blocks, blankets, bolsters, bands, straps, light weights)
• corrective exercises, asana, breathing and lifestyle changes to prevent pelvic floor disfunction
• learn how some postures can be used as assessments revealing weakness, compensation or limitations
• improve accuracy in cueing and learn creative ways to include whole-body strength and stability in your classes and private sessions

This knowledge will take your teaching to the next level, and allow you to help your students find true balance through yoga.  
5. An Exploration of Advanced Anatomy for Masterful Teaching with Krista. January 8-10, 2021 
In this module, Krista will review and deepen your understanding of anatomy and physiology as it applies to the practice of yoga.
Learn to feel each asana from the inside out so you can be yoga injury free for life. We will start from the ground up and explore the bones, joints, muscles and supporting tissues of the feet/ankles, knees, hips, spine and shoulders and discover how this anatomy applies to practicing, teaching and assisting yoga postures intelligently and confidently.

We will also review universal anatomical terminology, as well as skeletal and muscular anatomy.

For those interested in yoga for better mobility, this module is a valuable resource which demonstrates how, with knowledge of applied anatomy, yoga can be used as a powerful modality for feeling better in your body.
6. The Art of Advanced Sequencing + Assisting with Angela. January 22-24, 2021  
Making great assists + inspired sequencing is an essential aspect of teaching.
Assisting allows your students to receive the benefits of alignment, energy flow and connection, yet many teachers feel insecure, uncertain and even fearful of assisting.

Hands-on touch is also a deeply nourishing and supportive means of allowing students to move past their own limitations, but we have to move past our own limitations as teachers first!

In the first part of this module you will learn how to:

• Assist beginners and common misalignment issues
• Assess anatomy versus misalignment
• Deepen the practice through deeper assists that release tension and blockages
• Feel confident and solid in your assisting skills.

In the second half you will learn create sequences that are rooted in modern biomechanics and ancient energy wisdom which creates classes that are easeful and creative every time. You will learn how to feel inspired, safe + clear when you create classes for groups or individuals and KNOW that you are giving the very best practice.

We will also investigate the role of pacing, music and breath as a means to create a transformative flow that places the brain and body in a syncopated and meditative experience.

Learn the magic of touch, assists + sequencing to teach like a rockstar! 
7. Adaptive Yoga – Creating An Effective Personalized Practice for Anyone with Dr. Sarah. February 12-14, 2021 
Yoga really does help with everything!!!
Building on your understanding of Yoga a a truly transformative “technology”, you will also learn to apply your study of Yoga a tool to physically release, relax and allow the body to recover for the toll life may take on it.

In this practical module, you learn how Yoga can release mental and physical injury, disease and discomfort.

We will learn to adapt Yoga for:

• Back and spine injury and pain
• Knee and hip replacements and injuries
• Shoulder and wrist injury and recovery
• Various diseases + pathologies.

You will learn how to adapt Yoga to suit the needs of a specific group or person.

Become a highly sought out teacher who helps people truly feel free + alive! 
8.Go Deeper with Grace – The Art of Advanced Alignment & Biomechanics with Angela. March 5-7, 2021 
If you or your students have ever experienced pain, discomfort or just plain confusion in a pose, then you will love this offering!
You will explore fundamental and subtle alignment principles in ways you may have never experienced as a student or a teacher.

There are thousands of poses and thousands of refinements, but Angela makes it both simple and profound in this module by giving you specific “rules” and approaches that will feel easeful + graceful as a teacher.

Armed with this knowledge, as teachers we can provide a powerful + unique experience for our students as we guide them into postures from a truly safe, grounded and transformative approach.

You will also have the confidence + insight to know how to modify or adapt postures for students as well as provide true connection.

With a strong understanding of biomechanics + alignment principles, your teaching will soar while you will also gain a comprehensive understanding of asana.

Deepen and expand your personal practice and learn to use these masterful alignment principles to experience greater strength, stability and freedom while teaching! 
9.  Advanced Energetic Anatomy - The Chakras, Transformative Breath + Energy Body with Helen. March 19-21, 2021   
You are more than flesh and bone!
In this offering, you will experience your radiant body, energy field and learn how to stay harmonized.

The ancient yoga masters understood our human body is quite different from the way we understand it in modern times.

They conceived a very detailed and precise anatomy of the human body, which is very subtle and symbolic, rather than just physiological.

This model was used as the foundation to understand and interpret the way our system functioned, or malfunctioned.

In order to effectively work with Yoga as a transformative art, we must have an understanding of energetic anatomy including the Koshas (sheaths of being), Vayus (winds) Nadis (subtle channels) + Chakras (symbolic energy centers).

In this module you will:

• Understand "energetic" anatomy and how the various systems interact
• Learn to understand the "consciousness" and wisdom of the Chakras and create transformation + harmony through Yoga + meditation
• Learn to "diagnose" energy patterns and imbalances in yourself and your students.
• Learn kinesiology to pinpoint areas of stagnation + stress
• Understand "subtle medicine" practices including pranayama.

This module gives you the tools to work beyond just muscle and bone and become a true practitioner of energetic magic.
