Why Our Training
Choosing a Yoga Teacher Training is tough with online ads promising low costs and quick certification. Though useful during the pandemic, a study of 3000+ Studio owners concluded that 75% of owners wouldn't hire instructors with only online training, as auditions show these graduates lack skill and confidence. Many online Yoga Teacher Training programs focus on profit and don't align with the yoga community's values as they claim.

Here at Life Yoga Academy, we are a Yoga Studio
 as well as an Instructor development academy. We have worked with countless instructors and we know how to build successful instructors from the ground up. As instructors who have taken in-person Yoga Teacher Trainings and have also done our share of Online Trainings, we can attest that nothing beats the connection of live community and connection with in-person training.

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in 2018 and I am now running a corporate yoga program. Ever since the YTT, I left my 9-5 and I have never felt better. I am all around more happy and fulfilled. I am happy to write this review as I genuinely loved the training and all the positive changes it led me to!

Owner & Head Faculty

RYT 500

Ashtanga, Sequencing

Alia earned her YTT Designation at the Yoga Sanctuary in Toronto. She is an advocate for Natural Healing. "My goal is to bring awareness to the natural health resources at our fingertips and to unveil much of the scrutiny surrounding natural health and herbs. Yoga is a powerful healing tool and especially when combined with other modalities, its benefits are magnified and you will quickly learn exactly what your body is capable of. I have one rule for clients working with me.... we must have fun, laugh at ourselves and enjoy the process together" Alia is lighthearted, dedicated to the community and has been the driving force (along with the instructors) behind Life Yoga Studio's reputation and success earning the studio multiple Diamond awards for Best Yoga Studio in Milton by Readers Choice & Milton Chamber of Commerce Best Business of 2022.

RYT 500

Yoga Therapy, Senior Yoga Anatomy & Philosophy

Karusia is a lifelong dancer and yogini. She has danced ever since she can remember and began practicing asana in 1967. Karusia earned an Honours BFA Dance Degree from York University in 1992 and is a certified Yoga Therapist through the Rocky Mountain School of Yoga and Ayurveda (RMIYA) in Boulder, Colorado. She is also recognized as an E-RYT 500 through the Yoga Alliance of North America. Her studies have included Western and Eastern approaches to kinesiology, anatomy (both applied and experiential), healing, injury prevention and rehabilitation, as well as expressive performance arts. She began teaching asana in 1996, and has been invited to develop curriculum and to teach many preliminary and advanced teacher trainings in Toronto during the last 15 years. Her asana practice is framed by her studies with Baba Hari Dass and the Ashtanga Yoga Fellowship, which initiated her into Yogic Philosophy, pranayama, meditation and chanting in 1998. She practices Yoga Therapy privately, and through the Athletic Edge Sports Medicine (AESM) clinic in toronto. Karusia has had the good fortune to study with many gifted teachers in Yoga, healing and dance over the years. She approaches Yoga as living, breathing art as well as a science, and shares her knowledge in a down-to earth and infectious manner, sprinkled with the sensibility of the artist and mystic. In the spirit of continuing education Karusia has been studying qigong (Chinese Yoga), and is certified by international master Daisy Lee to instruct the Radiant Lotus Women's Form. She keeps her toe in the dance world through taking and teaching Belly dance classes. She has a passion for horses, and grooms and massages them weekly at a downtown barn in Toronto.
