Inspiring Authenticity

Introducing, Inspiring Authenticity, a holistic approach to learning how to teach and live the practice of yoga.  This training kicks off on August 2, 2017 and we'll spend three weekends together totally immersed in yoga philosophy, history, anatomy and self study. 

I decided to take the immersive route for this training so that we can go deep and fast into your learning.   You'll  be able  dive right into your studies throughout August and you'll be ready to begin teaching your 10 hour practicum in September.  September is equivalent to January in fitness and wellness circles and is the perfect time of year to launch your yoga teaching career! 

Your commitment will be for four full days over the first three weekends of August (Friday - Monday) plus three Wednesday night online workshops happening in between our weekend sessions.  There is also a self study online anatomy training component plus you will have some required reading to complete.  

Inspiring Authenticity is ideal for anyone who would like to fit an intensive training in through the quieter summer months or for someone who enjoys diving right into the deep end and totally immersing in the material they are learning.

One of the best parts of this training is that you'll be studying in a small, intimate group setting.  I am only allowing 10 participants into this training to ensure that everyone receives plenty of attention & support throughout our time together. 

This training will be held at my studio in Indian Head, Sk.  There are a few options available for accommodations and I will support you in finding the right match for your needs.   From a place to park your camper to an air bnb, you'll find plenty of hospitality within our welcoming community.   

Because Surya Yoga is nestled quietly on our in town property, you'll get plenty of time in nature to walk, contemplate, have a picnic or simply just sit around the fire enjoying solitude or the company of friends.   It is truly an ideal location for reflection, learning, sharing and growth!  

The nature of Surya Yoga being an extension of our home means that I don't have to charge you an arm and a leg for your training fees either!  Value is at the heart of this training, it's gotta feel in alignment with what you can afford.  I'm confident that our pricing will make you feel a sense of expansion when it comes to considering the value you will be receiving in exchange for your hard earned money.   

I believe that the best yoga teachers are those who teach from their heart, rather than from a textbook.  This training is as much about self discovery as it is about learning how to teach the practice of yoga.  By saying YES to this training course, you'll be saying YES to a more authentic life lived in alignment with your core desired feelings & soul aligned goals. 

You'll soon discover that yoga is about so much more than the poses!  

Of course, in this training you’ll learn how to do the poses.  You'll also learn how to teach the poses with clarity, and confidence.  You'll graduate feeling confident that you are able to keep your students safe and connected to their bodies as they move through their yoga practice.

About Me

My name is Robin.  I am the owner & head instructor at Surya Yoga.  I began teaching yoga in 2010, and opened Surya Yoga in 2014.   In 2015, I taught my first 200 hour training, graduating 10 teachers, many of whom are currently teaching regularly in and around Regina & Indian Head.

I believe yoga should be fun, and it is a way for us to deepen our understanding of who we are and how we tick. Ultimately, yoga can vastly improve our quality of life & our relationships with each other and the planet we live on.

I believe this is a yoga teacher training like no other.

At the core of this training is a belief in the importance of holding true to the Yoga Tradition which is why I have chosen Georg Feurestein’s Traditional Yoga Studies manual for you to study yoga history & philosophy.

I also believe creating relationship with our bodies is of key importance, and having a strong understanding of anatomy is vital to this relationship.  You"ll be using the world class Yoga Anatomy Fundamentals training developed by Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews to help you gain a strong understanding of anatomy as it pertains to yoga practice.

 During our time together we will deep dive into the practice, teaching & tradition of yoga.  We will also go on a journey of self discovery & awakening.

In addition to my top two yoga reference books, I have also included some of my favourite self help books on the required reading list to help you access a genuine connection to who you are, what you desire, and how you want to manifest your dreams.

Together we will be reading: 

Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews

The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness by Erich Schiffman

Loving What Is by Byron Katie

White Hot Truth & The Desire Map by Danielle Laporte

Money, A Love Story by Kate Northrup
