Perfect Balance Yoga partners with space holders and teachers across the globe to bring you Mindful Yoga Teacher Training. 

Through the dedication to the practice of yoga, Mindfulness, and Energy work you will connect to your inner teacher and cultivate inner peace.

The first step in becoming a teacher and space holder is diving into your own practice to embody the teaching from a personal space.

Inspired by Siam Reiki, Mindfulness following Zen Buddhist Monk Thich Nahnt Hanh, you will first practice to gain a grounded approach feeling the practice so you can teach from your observations and self study.

 

Together we will explore yoga as a tool for healing, incorporating Ayurvedic study, physical alignment and biomechanics with a focus on mindful, safe, and body inclusive instruction. After the training, you will receive ongoing support with teaching practice and  mentoring.
 

Each day this training guides you in practices that help you begin to notice your habits, build strength in body and mind on and off the mat.

We focus on setting a strong foundation in yogic basics, both physical and energetic. We rebuild the practice from the ground up, allowing you to deepen your understanding of Yoga anatomy and stability.

We invite, not only those who wish to become teachers, but anyone who wants to take their practice to deeper physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

About the Lead Teachers 

Alaina Vollmershausen

 

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Educator 

Meditation Practitioner / Stylist

Owner of Hair Heart & Soul

 

After close to a decade serving her community as a Stylist and Salon Owner, it was burnout that eventually led Alaina to her mat. There she discovered the love of Yoga. Always curious and wanting to understand why, it wasn’t surprising she was captivated when she discovered the ancient system of Ayurveda.

 

In 2019, she completed an extensive 18 month Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant Certification through the American Institute of Vedic Studies and not long after also completed a Mindfulness and Meditation Certification with the McLean Meditation Institute. 

 

Shortly thereafter, in search of a lifestyle change- Alaina, her husband Mike and three beautiful children relocated to Peachland, BC. Upon getting the family settled into their new life, she completed a Woman in Leadership training through University of Toronto’s -Rotman School Of Management and is currently studying Vedic Counseling. 

 

Alaina has reestablished her home hair studio- Hair, Heart & Soul -where she is again thrilled to be serving woman and families in the Peachland and surrounding area. It has been her intention all along to in time integrate her Yogic studies into her beauty business- helping her clients to cultivate true beauty from the inside out.

 

It is a pleasure to announce that Alaina will be  offering an Introduction to Ayurveda component to our upcoming Mind Body Connection- Yoga & Mindfulness 200 hour YTT . She looks forward to sharing her studies in Yogic Philosophy and the wisdom of Ayurveda with like-minded people.
