I focus on simple poses taught with clarity and a deep understanding of healthy bio-mechanics, as well as an introduction to restorative and yin yoga.  Alignment-based yoga simply means doing the poses in an integrated and effective way.  This allows the teacher to work with students in a rehabilitative manner, addressing injuries, or dynamically - working towards advanced postures.  This course also has a focus on online teaching, which may be the new normal.

The training is registered with Yoga Alliance.

About the lead teacher

I have trained over 950 teachers since 2007 in China, Japan and British Columbia. I've enjoyed physical yoga practice and teaching since the 1990‘s, and owned and operated both a home yoga studio and a larger commercial studio. In 2006 I wrote the course manual “Teaching Hatha Yoga” that is used by many studios as a foundation for their teacher trainings, and in 2016 wrote "Knead Yoga" - the course manual for private client work.  Early in 2017 I completed "Open Source Yoga - Practice and Teaching" - the new manual for the 200hr course, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of offering teacher training. 



Steve Mitten, Life Coach 

"For anyone who loves yoga, and aspires to take their practice to a whole new level, I could not recommend the teacher training more highly. I don’t know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I enjoyed every minute of the journey, and the process has already paid huge dividends in my practice and life."

Will Blunderfield 

"Dan Clement's 200 hour yoga teacher training was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Dan's passion for teaching yoga and knowledge of the discipline, combined with the broad scope of this course really helped prepare me for entering the world of yoga instruction."
