Functional Yoga Teacher Training is a two-day workshop lead by Tatianna Graham (Physiotherapist, Yoga Instructor) and Brenna Bellhouse (Educator, Yoga Studio Owner). The workshop is geared towards physical education teachers and other teachers who are interested in incorporating yoga into their curriculum.

The benefits of yoga are tremendous. To name a few, yoga fosters mind-body awareness, physical strength and flexibility, confidence, enhanced sport performance, focus, and improves sleep. Research tells us that there are many positive effects of practicing yoga in schools. There is no minimum age that is required to begin practicing yoga; however, being able to teach yoga effectively and safely is key to truly reap its benefits. This is why Tatianna and Brenna have created this program, as they are passionate about introducing yoga to the school communities and combined they have the expertise and experience to transfer this knowledge in this workshop. If you are a teacher and would like to use yoga with your students, then this workshop is for you.
