This training is the best thing I've done! I've learned so much about myself, not just how my body moves, but how I show up for myself, as a yoga teacher and in the world. The community is like nothing I have ever experienced before. It feels authentic, warm and inclusive - there is room for us all. I am not the same person as when I started. Thank you!

The Modern Yoga Certification course is for you!

If you've already done a certification course and feel like there are gaps in your education and practice, this is what you've been waiting for. 

The Modern Yoga Teacher Training course brings theory to practice. It's one of the few teacher trainings out there with a strong focus on applied anatomy for yoga asana and everyday life to feel more confident to teach, adapt and support a diverse community of people. 

Weaved throughout the movement education is a focus on honouring teachings of yoga with a decolonial approach to yoga history and philosophy for inclusive and respectful practices. 

    • To make the training accessible no matter where you live around the world, it's 100% online. A blend of recorded content that you can revisit as many times as needed, 2x monthly live calls (on Zoom) with your teachers for a deeper dive into the course and to answer your questions. You'll also be supported by small-group mentorship monthly live calls for teaching practice and community discussion.
    • *The Modern Yoga Essentials and Teacher Development courses are included in the certification course.

    This course has so many depths and layers to it. I feel like all those unanswered questions in my mind and all those I couldn't articulate are finally coming to the surface and finding a resolution. I feel like this training has provided the opportunity I've been waiting for, I just didn't know what it was... but now I do. Thank you to all the H&B team for all your wonderful contributions for creating this precious space.

    3. I want to do the certification course, but I want to start it right now. 

    Yes you can! You can start your certification course at any time with our Independent Studies option. We begin a new cohort of the teacher training each October. Because of the flexibility with online learning and popular demand for an early start to the training, you can get access the certification course any time of the year. 

    Independent Studies gives you a head start with the coursework. You can take your time to move through the material, inviting it to sink in and become more embodied. We believe that learning isn't linear and starting when it works for you and your schedule makes the learning process even more enriched. 

    teacher training online

    The teacher training "officially" starts in October with our 2x monthly live calls and mentorship groups. However, it doesn't matter how far you've made it through the course ahead of time. You can continue moving at your pace, or you can go back to the beginning and revisit the content along with the cohort. 

    We love the Independent Studies option and highly recommend starting here if you want to get certified (either the 200 or 300 hour option) and not wait until October.

    I appreciate the online format of the course, doing it on my own time and that it was science-based. It took the stress out of “I’m not even that good at yoga, why should I be teaching it?" Now I feel more confident in my cueing - I had a lot of the anatomical knowledge already, but to now be able to teach it more effectively to others has been great!

    4. I don't want another certification but I want to upgrade my teaching

    You'll love the Modern Yoga Teacher Development course.

    Since the training, I’ve fixed old movement and postural patterns that would always hurt and assumed would never go away. The emotional growth has given me a renewed sense of wellbeing. And the course! The lessons are organized in a way that is like reading a story, you are the main character and you are witnessing it unfold! Loved every minute!

    5. I need a yoga anatomy update

    The Modern Yoga Essentials course is perfect for you.

    yoga teaching

    Your yoga teacher training might not have been in-depth with the anatomy portion. Or maybe once you started teaching, you realized that the anatomy you learned didn't give you an understanding of human movement and how to apply that to the people in your classes. 

    The Modern Yoga Essentials is the course that fills the gap in your anatomy education and brings it to life in immediately applicable and easy-to-understand ways. 

    • It doesn't matter what style of yoga you teach. If you teach Vinyasa Flow or Restorative yoga, you'll enrich your teaching with a deeper understanding of human movement and applied anatomy. 
    • You'll know what the different joints and muscles need for healthy movement and long-term health. You'll be able to adapt yoga poses to fit the person, and create supportive and inspiring sequences no matter who is in your classes. 
    • 10 hours of applied anatomy, practical teaching tools and yoga classes to integrate your knowledge and see how it's applied to real life, real classes.

    I didn’t learn much anatomy in my 200hr training and was struggling with imposter syndrome- not feeling like I had enough accessible options for my students, not feeling confident in niching down. Now I feel SO much more confident in myself and my tools to make my classes more accessible for students! I have given myself permission to go outside of the "normal" studio teaching schedule and create a schedule I'm excited to wake up to every morning. This course was exactly what I needed to push me forward.

    6. I don't want to teach yoga, I just want to deepen my practice

    yoga teacher

    This is a popular pathway for a lot of people. And the good news is that you can do any of our courses and deepen your practice. 

    You don't have to be a yoga teacher to get benefits from our courses. We have people who do the certification with no intention of teaching and they love the deep dive, community connection and mentorship support. 

    The Essentials course is another popular option for those who simply want applied anatomy for real life and yoga asana education. You'll understand what your joints and muscles need for healthy and sustainable movement. You'll be able to adapt your favourite yoga poses so that they feel good in your body. And you'll be able to take that knowledge into your everyday life and activities. 

    Curiosity, learning and exploration are always good things! It keeps our minds sharp and our hearts open. We can't wait to see you in any of our courses. If you still have questions, please send us an email to: [email protected]

    I felt inspired again after years of teaching. I learned about my assumptions and fixed ideas and loved how I could shake them up with new questions and learning. This training opens up creativity and possibilities. It's serious and it's not... lot's of space for fun and laughter. It really is an invitation for being open to and curious for new knowledge and inspiration. This training touched me in my heart and bones, thank you!
