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.

Truama Informed Yoga Teacher

Registered Social Worker

Josee truama informed yoga teaching piece of YTT.


Her yoga journey began about 9 years ago in which she found the gentleness of the practice, and the focus on body and breath to be very healing and soothing.

 

She continued this practice throughout University and developed a true passion for the teachings, philosophy, and history of yoga, therefore she decided to embark on the journey of becoming a yoga teacher during her undergrad.

 

Once she began teaching, I knew that I had found something that I really enjoyed, and the training allowed her to take her personal practice deeper, as well as share it with others.
