Or just enhance your yoga skills....

HYER Destination is a Yoga Alliance accredited school. Successful graduates are automatically eligible to register as Registered Yoga Teachers with the Alliance. The practice of yoga is enjoying ever increasing levels of popularity and certified teachers are in high demand everywhere. This could be your first step in a new and rewarding career.

Our Yoga Teacher Training (or YTT) Program is open to everyone – you do not need to be an experienced practitioner and not everyone who enrolls in the program aspires to become a teacher. Some people are drawn to YTT for a more personal reason – to make a positive change in their lives, to expand their knowledge or to enhance their own personal practice. This might be exactly what you are looking for.

All classes are held at the beautiful HYER Destination Studio located at 2 Forget Street in Embrun. This studio is particularly well known for the variety and quality of classes it offers as well as being renowned as a well-respected training school. The facilities are top notch – beautifully decorated and fully equipped with every prop and accessory imaginable. The studio even includes one of the few Aerial Yoga rooms in the Ottawa area.

Classes for this program are held one weekend a month for a 12 month period. Participants are also required to do regular readings, journaling and other independent study work. HYER Destinations YTT Program covers a wide spectrum of topics, methods and techniques including Philosophy, History, Ethics, Physiology and Anatomy.

In January 2017, HYER Destination Centre will once again be offering our very popular 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program. Now entering its 6th year, our program provides you with all the tools you need to become a fully certified Yoga Teacher.

Join Judith Boucher, E-RYT and studio owner as she will be with you every step of the way as you embark on your new journey. While Judith is the primary teacher for the program, she will be joined by other professionals from her specially selected team to ensure that, as a participant in the program, you always receive the highest quality resources and teaching available.

She embarked in YTT training in 2003 and, from there, went on to obtain her 500 hour advanced training certification in Rishikesh, India.
