Yoga Teacher Training

Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Programs.

Listen to the call...

Diving into yoga teacher training is not just for those who want to teach yoga; it’s also for those who wish to learn more about this rich practice and its roots.

 

Each program has a strong focus on the history, philosophy and application of yoga to modern life.

Lila Vinyasa 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

This 200-hour vinyasa yoga teacher training program is designed to help you deepen your practice and understanding of the body as well as learn all the skills for instructing an incredible Vinyasa Yoga class. 

Diving into teacher training is not just for those who want to teach yoga, but also for those wishing to create a greater connection to breath, community and their inner teacher.

This program focuses on the principles for living a balanced lifestyle in modern society and how to be a role model for others.

Vancouver 200 hour yoga teacher training

Lila Vinyasa 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

This Yoga Alliance Certified program was designed for those who are looking to deepen their practice and teaching.

**You must have a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate to participate in the first two modules.

However, the third module is OPEN to anyone who would like to explore the more esoteric aspects of the practice.

Lila Vinyasa Art of Sequencing Teacher Training

In this 4-day training, we’ll unpack peak yoga postures, do a deep dive into Lila Flow Yoga Wave Theory sequencing, discuss themes, explore subtle body practices, and examine how and why we aim to create balance in the muscle groups and nervous system in a yoga class.

This program features the history and practice of vinyasa yoga, specifically, Prana Vinyasa Flow pioneered by my teacher, Shiva Rea. This style of yoga embodies movement, chanting, music, and breath control to direct the life force/energy (Prana). 

The Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga Philosophy

I want students to complete each class and training with knowledge of moving from a place of their inner power. I hope that we learn how to trust and also trust our instincts. As yoga teachers, we teach the physical poses, but what we’re doing is holding space for people to experience themselves.

My Initial Experience.

The first training I took back in 2003 was life-changing. I had just graduated from Film School and had decided that was not the industry for me. I was lost and not sure what I was going to do with my life. A dear friend and fellow yoga enthusiast had decided to take a training and invited me to join. I thought “why not?”

I was blown away at how rich the history, practice and application of the teachings were. I also realized I loved teaching! 

Since then I have taken between 1-3 trainings a year and still do so. I love being a student. There’s so much to learn and it’s such a privilege to step out of the day-to-day and immerse myself in the practice and student community. When I lead training, I encourage my students to do the same.

My advice for training:

  • If you can, let go of the day-to-day and immerse yourself in this beautiful practice and through it, deepen your connection to the divinity that lives with you.

  • Be open to what the teacher has to offer, even if you don’t agree with it. There’s always something to learn.

  • Be open to changing your mind about EVERYTHING!

  • Ask a lot of questions to the teacher and to yourself.

  • Share your thoughts and opinions with the group, we can learn so much from each other.

    The Faculty.

    Carolyn fell into yoga in 1999, while living the ski bum dream in Whistler. It initially provided agility for her snowboarding, skateboarding and trail running. Now, as a teacher in Vancouver, she continually learns how to connect with others and feel at home in one’s skin. The magic of yoga surprisingly grows quieter; towards a place where the physical, the internal, the spectacle and the witness are all one.

    Carolyn’s past career was outdoors, in environmental restoration for Environment Canada and BC Wildlife Federation. Since completing her first 200 hour YTT in 2008, she has an extensive CV: as a contributing writer for My Yoga Online and Halfmoon Yoga, filming videos with lululemon and Mala Collective, a presenter at Wanderlust Whistler Festivals, as an educator for international Teacher Trainings with Lila Vinyasa School of Yoga, managing yoga studios and guiding students through the mind blowing practice of just being while in silent meditation intensives.

She has her Reiki 1, Thai Massage level 1, 100 hr PREMA Therapeutics, 50hr Yin Yoga and Meridians training. She completed a 200hr Certification in Applied Positive Psychology in the fall 2016 with the Flourishing Center. One of Erin’s greatest yoga joys is being one of the founding faculty and mentors with Three Sisters Yoga 200/300hr. She also teaches with Lila Vinyasa 200/300hr, Sonic/Illumina Yoga 200hr in Paris, Illumina Yoga 200hr in Carmel NY, Yoga Pagoda in Vero Beach FL and been a guest lecturer in Prema Therapeutics 800 for Yoga and Hospitalization. She is also pretty thrilled to be part of the Good Life Project Yoga team.

    Erin believes, through her own personal healing from trauma, that Yoga is a journey toward the freedom of good health, happiness, longevity and the bliss of now. She has seen that EVERY body, mind and soul can benefit from it’s beautiful ancient tried and tested wisdom
