The program is 9 months long and we meet one weekend a month. Weekends typically fall on the last weekend of every month and run from September to May.
The Yoga Teacher Training & Self Realization program typically takes place on the last weekend of every month. The training is 9 months long giving you the opportunity to integrate the teachings, apply them to your life, and ask questions as they arise. The Yoga Teacher Training & Self Realization program starts in September and finishes in May. On the Saturday's and Sunday's that we meet, hours are 9am - 5pm with a one hour lunch break.
The program has a focus on spiritual development and personal growth. Michelle pulls in on her previous training in psychology and is able to provide tools and techniques to help you advance on your journey. Personal development is key to self-realization. This Yoga Teacher Training & Self Realization program is unique and designed just for you!
The workshops and seminars are geared to your learning style which means that no two programs will run the same. Some years we have Naturopath's come teach us cleansing techniques while other years we have Physio Therapists explain pelvic health to us. At times we have have Spiritual Psychotherapists come do workshops with us. Every month there are guest speakers including Erin Byron, Michelle's Guru.
There is great value in having mentorship from your teacher. It's a time when you get individual attention to answer any and all questions you may have. These montly mentoring sessions allow you to go deeper into your practice by looking at and addressing your personal needs.
The books picked for this program are books that you will read over and over again for many years to come. The book list is short with only 5 required texts. You can purchase them from MYTyoga at a discounted price, at your local bookstore, or rent them from your library.
MYTyoga is a 7-minute walk to Georgian Bay, the longest fresh water beach in the world. Connecting to mother earth is a crucial for intuitive development. Every weekend includes a walk down the beach regardless of weather so come dressed accordingly.

One of the common questions I get is how do I know which program to pick? Get to know your teachers, find out where they trained, talk to previous students and look where they are. See if your teacher has what you are looking for. Trust the little small voice, it will never guide you astray.
As MYTyoga is located in Tiny, there aren't a lot of restaurants that are close by. Most people bring a lunch and spend the hour eating and mingling with peers in the studio. Please ensure that your food is vegetarian friendly for the weekend adhering to the first limb of yoga.
MYTyoga is located out in the country and a concern many people have is the winter driving. The YTT consists of 1 weekend a month which equates to 3-4 weekends that may impact us. There is always a make-up weekend included in our sessions in case we have to cancel a session due to weather.
Michelle's YTT program is not just about learning how to become a yoga instructor. For me, the lessons learned have shown up in my parenting, teaching, marriage, and the way I lead my life. Michelle, her program, and her space is inclusive and non-judgmental. The program becomes your own! She caters to individual interests, and has a way of leading everyone to their own discoveries. Michelle, thank you for introducing me to the philosophies and practices that help guide me towards my personal intentions. May the bright sun shine upon you, and your past and future students. Namaste - Emily B. YTT Graduate, Class of 2017
Are you looking for a community of like-minded people? Want to enhance your spiritual, mental and physical practice? Are you looking for your perspective on life to change or to effortlessly float through life as opposed to barely keeping your head above water? Michelle has guided me in a direction I never knew existed. Who knew there was so much more to a yogic lifestyle then just the physical practice? I completed my 200HR YTT with Michelle’s Yoga and Therapies in 2018 and continue to see subtle shifts occurring in my mind, body and spirit today. The journey Michelle takes you on is something everyone needs to experience for themselves. She has provided me with an array of knowledge, tools and self-confidence to learn how to master my mind and enhance my spiritual connection all while living a yogic lifestyle. I had no idea that life could be so easy until I met Michelle. Forever grateful. Emily G. YTT Graduate, Class of 2018
I am so thrilled that I decided to take Michelle’s 200 HR YYT when I did. I thought that maybe it wasn’t the right time for me personally, but all of life’s signs were leading me in that direction. When the opportunity came to me, I knew I had to reach out to her and make the first move. I had been living a stressful, unsatisfying life prior to starting the training. After doing the course, I can honestly say that my life has completely transformed in the most amazing way’s. Michelle is an amazing human, and a wealth of knowledge and support. I am so happy with my decision to stick close to home and take her course. I was welcomed into the small group with open arms, have built some amazing relationships, and learned SO much about myself and a healthier way of living. Thank you Michelle and my YYT sisters for changing my life, and allowing me the open environment to be myself and grow into the person that I was meant to be. Paige. YTT Graduate, Class of 2019

Making the decision to invest in yourself is massive! Make sure to celebrate it. Bask in that feeling because its a big deal. I'm honored and so happy to be on this journey this with you.
I remember the day when I made the decision to sign up for Sat Dharam's Yoga Teacher Training program. I was so excited, nervous, scared, happy... there was a list of emotions I cycled through. The cycle is the same one I went through when I signed up for the next Yoga Teacher Training program I took, or Erin Byron's Yoga Therapy Training, or when I quit my government job and went to India for a month where I studied Classical Yoga.
Once you make the decision to embark on this journey, you may notice some changes. Those changes may include having more dreams, change in friendships, you may start purging. Be gentle with yourself and try to stay grounded.
