So many of our friends and yoga students comment, “Wow, teaching yoga must be the best job!”

Happily we can say a resounding “YES!”

Chanthalah and Nathan have been developing the comprehensive Core Yoga Teacher Training course over the past 10 years. Throughout the last 16 years of full-time yoga teaching, Chanthalah and Nathan have supervised the training of yoga teachers

Through comprehensive training and learning experiences we will help you realize your individualized ability to teach and share your yoga with others. Based on the world-renowned teachings of Yoga that come from the tradition and lineage of T Krishnamacharya, A.G. Mohan, and Satyananda Saraswati, Core Yoga has been developed with the aim to share integrative yogic wisdom, advanced anatomical knowledge with practical movement principles influenced by contemporary dance and refined physiotherapy techniques, ensuring new teachers are equipped with the knowledge to bring yoga into the future.

Yoga is not a one-size-fits-all practice, however our gift to you is to discover how you can inspire deep and lasting change in others through their yoga journey.

Teaching has always involved mentoring new teachers and providing them with a supportive and nurturing environment to deepen their knowledge of expert yoga anatomy information. We are excited to share with you the fruits of this refined information in our Core Yoga Teacher Training course, and invite you to discover the deeply rewarding and enriching nature of yoga teaching with us. It is our goal at Core Yoga to provide you with the opportunity to create a deep and lasting connection with yoga. Enjoy the support this course offers as you refine your skills that will enable you to become a well trained, highly educated, experienced, empathetic and insightful yoga teacher. 

Choosing Core Yoga Teacher Training:
We know that as you read through the vast options of yoga teacher training, you are faced with many decisions to make. During this process, we invite you to consider these questions:

What is your motivation to do your teacher training?

With Core Yoga we will facilitate your deeper understanding of yoga and assist you in refining your own personal practice. We specialize in helping you share your passion about teaching yoga to others.

Where do you see yourself teaching?

Over our careers we have taught yoga in many places from festivals to one-on-one, dance students at university, dynamic, packed classes in gyms, mindfulness and meditation for big corporate companies, stress management for doctors, specialized classes for athletes, international yoga retreats and our wonderful boutique classes in West End. Core Yoga Teacher Training can prepare you for all of these different teaching situations.

Would you like the structure of monthly weekend immersions and the support of a dedicated group?

Research shows that humans love community and a feeling of connection. Core Yoga Teacher Training limits the number of participants to provide individualized support and professional development. It is structured over 8 weekend immersions, with a 4-day retreat integration, weekly technique lab and monthly personal mentoring that facilitates a deep connection of body, mind and spirit with a nurturing community of like-minded yogis based at Core Yoga.

 Do you have an investigative nature and love to explore, reflect and consult with others on interesting topics?

Each person has relevant experience to share and contribute in a reflective and consultation environment. As facilitators, Chanthalah and Nathan’s skills lie in being able to help you discover your strengths as a yoga ambassador, whether you are more curious about philosophy or want to refine your physical skills.

Are there questions about yoga anatomy and physiology that you have found challenging to find answers to?

With our background in physiotherapy and dance, Core Yoga will challenge you on all different levels. Chanthalah has the clinical and lecturing experience to answer those difficult anatomy questions. We will also give you the expert skills to manage all different physical abilities and goals in the yoga studio
