30hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training
with Jamie Lee CYA-E-RYT 500
Sep 30-1, Oct 21-22, Nov 18-19
12:00-5:00pm | Energie Encorps

This 30 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is a level one (1) intro into the system, science and art of asana sequencing.

"Vinyasa" is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means "to place," and the prefix vi, "in a special way". When applied to our asana practice, it’s sometimes referred to as the ‘breathing system’, or the union of breath and movement as a flowing sequence of specific asanas.

We live in a busy world and learning how to move with awareness is essential for our health, longevity and state of mind. This approach to the practice is simply an inspiration to be used as an artful approach to living, a way of applying your skill and awareness of yoga to all the rhythms and sequences of life, including self-care, relationships, work, and personal evolution.

This 30hour Yinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is for anyone who wishes to deepen their asana practice, those wanting to learn some new skills and even those who wish to share Yoga professionally. It is suitable for yoga teachers and practitioners at all levels of yogic experience.

Space is limited to 20 students

    The Style:
    Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Background:
    The Sanskrit word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement”, the popularity and spread of Vinyasa Yoga came from two (2) main influencial Guru`s of our past; Tirumalai Krishnamacharya and K. Pattabhi Jois.
    Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (November 18, 1888 – February 28, 1989) was an Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar. Often referred to as "The Father of Modern Yoga," Krishnamacharya is widely regarded as one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century and is credited with the revival of hatha yoga. Pattabhi Jois began his yoga studies in 1927 at the age of 12 with Krishnamacharya, and by 1948 had established the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute for teaching the specific yoga practice known as Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga Yoga is named after the eight limbs of yoga mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. "Power yoga" and "vinyasa yoga" are generic terms that may refer to any type of vigorous yoga exercise derived from Ashtanga yoga.
    The Faculty:
    Jamie Lee CYA-E-RYT 500
    Bachelors in Kinesiology from McMaster University
    Jamie is registered with the Canadian Yoga Alliance at the CYA-RYT 500 level.

    Yoga found its way into Jamie’s life as a method of injury prevention while training for Triathlon and Ironman throughout university. Having made Triathlon Canada’s National team twice (junior and age-grouper), the motivation to race and compete slowly changed its focus from a health regimen, to a more holistic approach to health and happiness through yoga asana and meditation. Jamie has been intensively studying Hatha, Ashtanga and the Iyengar systems of yoga ever since. Currently his yoga teaching and philosophy draws wisdom from both the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems.
