The focus of our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Intensive is to develop yogis and
yoginis into confident and knowledgeable practitioners. We teach a variety of
techniques and practices to help students better understand themselves, develop a
personal practice and learn how to use yoga to facilitate change within.
Our asana classes are varied, reflecting the breadth of our teaching experience and our
preference for diversity. Students can expect to learn asana from the Vinyasa Flow tradition,
as well as elements of Viniyoga, Iyengar Yoga and Yin Yoga styles. The subjects that are
explored in the discussion section are first actively practiced in the Breath and Asana classes,
so that students gain experiential knowledge.
Class sizes are deliberately intimate, with a maximum of 16 people per class, so that our
teachers can give students high quality attention and care.The course breaks for the middle of the day and meets again at 5 in the afternoon. Here, we have another practice which ties in with the theme of the day. One night per week we also have a fire puja (ritual).

Director of Studies
Randall O’Leary has been involved with yoga since 1992 when his mother brought him to his first class. From that point on, he has been studying and practicing yoga with dedication and enthusiasm. He began teaching in India and at the Sanctuary in the mid-1990’s and has been teaching ever since.
He has studied with yoga teachers in the west in the Iyengar and Viniyoga traditions, and has since created the Jungleyoga style. He has also traveled to India over a dozen times and has a teacher in Rishikesh, Uttranchal, India. He was initiated into an ancient order of yogis in 2006 and continues the unbroken lineage of yoga traditions through the Jungleyoga style.
Our Level 1 course is aimed at giving students a deeper experience of yoga. We not only practice yoga in its many forms, we also look into the methods and techniques to understand how and why yoga works. This is useful for both students who are or wish to become teachers and for people who are simply interested in going deeper into their practice. We run a course which is designed to be fun, intelligent, transformative and interesting. Regardless of your yoga experience, there is much to be learned and explored in the course.
The course runs for 4 weeks, 6 days per week, about 6 hours to total class time per day. It is a registered 200 Hour Certified course with a certificate granted upon completion of the course.
We learn about many facets of yoga on the course. Understanding the postures and what they do is just the beginning. We also learn about the nature of the breath and the nature of the life force. We explore sound, mantra and types of universal energies that are expressed through sound. There is a bit (just a bit) of western-style anatomy and physiology as well. The classical philosophies of yoga are taught, which include the Yoga Sutras and the philosophy of Tantra. We take a week to explore the energy centres called Chakras and their effect on our lives. There are many other exciting subjects that don’t fit into any simply category.
The course starts at the fundamentals and builds up from there. The experience is cumulative, meaning that what we learn on one day will be important for what we will learn the next day. In this way, our knowledge can build as our yoga experience progresses. We also wish for students to grow and transform through the yoga. We are very open to individual expression and experience; we encourage each person to find their own unique, personal yoga.
We do not focus on practicing to become a yoga teacher (though we do offer optional classes which explore this topic). The best way to really know yoga and perhaps teach is to have a vast and full personal experience of yoga. The knowledge and experience offered will give a strong foundation for whatever it is you want to do with yoga.

Our Yoga Teacher Training is a holistic program; to understand Yoga you must first understand Self… body, mind, and spirit. The Chakana, or Andean Cross, acts as the guide and foundational structure for the course. The Chakana encompasses a lower world, middle world, and upper world and within each world we will focus on different types of movement, diet, and meditation. We bring to life the ancient teachings of Yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in Yogic philosophy, and a daily Yoga practice, called The Kula Flow.
