Are you ready to discover your destiny and live a life with more love and purpose?

Deepen your practice, find your path, and make like-minded friends for life.
The only journey is the one within.

Yoga = Union. The world needs more UNION teachers, we are the leaders of the new heart-centered consciousness.

This unique Yoga Alliance approved training allows you to learn how to teach people of all levels, and meet them where they are by sharing an ancient technology for happiness. In addition to becoming a yoga teacher, you will become a meditation guide, and a teacher of love, breath, and relaxation.

The Awaken Love Registered Yoga School offers five trainings in one. Learn how easily you can share physical yoga (Hatha and Vinyasa), the yoga of meditation (Kundalini), and the integrative element of healing (Reiki).

On your average day do you often feel unfulfilled, uncertain, or overwhelmed?

As if you are chasing something outside of yourself?

Is there a gift within you that you are having trouble realizing?

You are not alone, life can be challenging. When you dedicate the time to inner self love, you begin to see that life has a plan for you that is more magnificent and fulfilling that any plan we can make for ourselves.

Each obstacle along your path has been a beautiful gift—a call for you to love yourself even more. Love is the deepest healing of all. Love is the Master Healer. Gift yourself 200 hours of embodying love and compassion while filling your tool box with sacred yogic practices that allow you to relax into wholeness and experience self-mastery.

The Awaken Love Yoga Alliance Registered School offers a one-of-a-kind, 200 hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Program with an emphasis on Kundalini Meditation and Integrative Healing in Toronto!

The intention of the Awaken Love Yoga Teacher Training is not to master advanced asana’s, but to master yourself, know your truth, and align with love. All are welcome, even if you feel you might not be flexible enough to teach yoga, or that you would just want to take the training to deepen your personal practice, this training is for you and will open many doors. As Patanjali said in the Yoga Sutras—we practice yoga to “control the fluctuations of the mind.” The ultimate goal of yoga is flexibility of the mind, so you can remain open to all the possibilities life has to offer. When the mind is flexible the body will follow. This creates the inner space for you to relax into life, and reunite with your breath.

Matt Kahn says that, “Love is the highest vibration, and your breath is your tour guide. Whatever arises, love THAT.”

What graduates are saying about the Awaken Love Yoga Teacher Training:


“Life changing.”

“When I first started the Awaken Love yoga teacher training, I did not expect that I would be teaching yoga. I did it to take a deeper dive into these sacred practices. By the end of the yoga teacher training program, I had already developed a group of clients and had designed two workshops ready to be shared with the public. I learned I CAN teach yoga.” “I learned so much in 200 hours, we practiced physical yoga, spiritual yoga, and meditations that will last me my lifetime. I paid for the course, but the results are priceless.”

“A spiritual awakening.”

“I now know and love myself, as never before. If you want to get to know yourself on a deep level and have communion with the Divine, the Awaken Love Yoga Teacher Training shows the way.”

Imagine waking up in the morning and taking a deep breath, feeling supported by many powerful practices that help you soften into love, let go, unravel, and release tension in your body.

Now imagine walking through your day with a deeper sense of connection to your breath, your body, the Earth, and universal life force energy. With this sense of expanded awareness you smell, see, and sense more vividly. You feel open to all life’s possibilities, living through the heart, with purpose.

Knowing whatever challenges you may experience you have access to an inner wealth of resources that you can utilize to uplift yourself and those around you.

Hatha is the union of sun and moon. Hatha Yoga is physical yoga, the yoga of asanas (physical postures), and is the most widely popularized form of Yoga. It is the form that nearly every style of Yoga taught in the West is derived from.
Many describe Kundalini as the coil of the hair of the Beloved. The Beloved is God, Spirit, the Universe- whatever you want to call it. The Kundalini is that piece of God, Spirit, and the Universal Intelligence within.

Kundalini means "the curl of the hair of the beloved" and yoga is union. Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan works fast to give you the experience of the fruits of yoga. It is a high science designed to awaken the full potential of human consciousness in each individual and expand that awareness to our unlimited Self. This practice simply changes you from the inside out and makes you want to be a better person and live a more heart centered life.
Many people who sign up for a yoga teacher training have no intention of ever teaching – rather, they are ready to create a big change in their lives and/or are looking to deepen their personal practice. So whether you think you want to teach yoga or not, this training is about you: opening your heart, accepting yourself more fully and living the life you dream of. Taking this time to devote to loving yourself will open many doors in your life.
Yoga and meditation are designed to control the fluctuations of the mind. The true goal of yoga is to become flexible in the mind, what the mind does the body follows. This compassionate training is designed for those who seek to be in union (yoga) with all of who they are. Cultivating strength and flexibility are a few of the many benefits of the sacred practices we will be experiencing.
