All Yasodhara Yoga Edmonton teachers have undergone intensive training at Yasodhara Ashram near Nelson, B.C. This includes the three-month Yoga Development Course, as well as teacher certifications.

carleanI have been practicing Hatha Yoga for about 40 years. In 1996 I discovered Swami Sivananda Radha’s Yasodhara Ashram and knew I had found my spiritual home. I completed the three-month Yoga Development Course Intensive and five months in residence there in 1998 and have been teaching and learning ever since. Re-certifying on a regular basis in Hidden Language Hatha Yoga and Kundalini and Dream Yoga has given me many wonderful opportunities to explore and grow in heart and mind. It is a joy and a privilege for me to be able introduce people to Swami Radha’s practical approach to life through Yoga.

niallI took my first Hatha Yoga class around 15 years ago, then spent the next three years looking for deeper meaning in the poses and practices. I found that at Yasodhara Ashram, enrolling without hesitation in the Yoga Development Course and staying at the community for eight months. The practices of yoga have helped me become a better person. I understand more my mind, my interactions, and how I can make the world better through service. I am thrilled to offer the teachings of Swami Sivananda Radha to the people of Edmonton. I re-certified my Hatha Yoga teacher training in spring 2012, and returned to the Ashram for four months of teaching and karma yoga service in the winter of 2013.
