100HR Yoga Intensive Course

Starting January 2020!

This course will be an extension of our Foundations of Yoga online course. 


These 100 hours of study come directly from the 300Hr Training Program and includes

60Hr Foundation of Yoga Course

  • Monday evening online sessions (25 online sessions held over 15 months)

  • In depth exploration of yoga philosophy, meditation, and Sanskrit language

  • Lead by Robyn Love and three guest instructors


40 Hours Communication Course

  • 2 Hour sessions during the 300Hr Training Weekends; clear and confident communication

  • Topics include: identifying your communication styles, barriers to communication, verbal and nonverbal communication skill building, having difficult conversations, communication and technology.

  • Although this is placed within the context of a yoga training, the course work is valuable for communication skills for all personal and professional relationships.

In 25 online sessions held over 15 months we will discuss Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, Samkya philosophy, experience a wide variety of yoga meditation practices, and learn the basics of the Sanskrit alphabet and pronunciation.


In the 2 hour weekend meetings we will also cover topics related to communication: non-violent communication techniques, empathetic listening skills, group dynamics and working with people and groups when challenging topics and emotions arise. Knowing how to communicate effectively is an indispensable—and highly valued—skill. Being able to express yourself clearly and with confidence is essential in both your professional and personal life, and can have a significant impact on your relationships with others.


Programs Details

JANUARY 2020 - APRIL 2021 

Led by Robyn Love, Nancy Buckle, Chase Bossart, Jyoti Chittur, and Dr. Patricia Dold, the online classes will be held LIVE every other Monday evening starting in January 2020. 

We will record all sessions so that you are able to watch the recordings later at your own convenience. A self-directed study project based on one aspect covered in this training will be part of the program. 


This 100Hr Intensive is open to anyone interested in deepening their yoga practice or studying yoga philosophy. 

If you have questions like:

  • How is yoga different from physical fitness? 

  • Why do I feel better when I do yoga?

Or simply are interested in what yoga has to offer beyond group studio classes, this course will introduce and explore the ideas that have guided students of yoga for millennia. 


This course may also compliment a 200HR yoga teacher training.

This program will also include a monthly in-person meeting with Yoga Instructor, Personal and Professional Development Coach and and trained Counsellor, Nancy Buckle. She will lead the 2-hour in-person sessions (with option to participate online or watch the recordings only). 


Students will be invited to bring their real-life experiences to the group for discussion and learning.  Each month, assignments will be given in the area of communication the group is working on that month. Each meeting will begin with a debriefing of the participant's experience of the assignment from the previous month.


These important skills are instrumental to anyone wishing to work with people in a healing setting, whether it is one-on-one or in a group, as well as personal and professional development to help improve the quality of your relationships.


*Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists continuing education credits will be available for those who qualify.
