Cynthia Funk created the Evolving Spirit Teacher Training Program in 2001. At the time, her studio was operating under the name The Yoga Sanctuary Danforth.
In 2008, The Yoga Yoga Sanctuary Danforth registered as a Certified Private Educational Institute with the Federal government. In 2020 the name of the institution changed to the Yoga Sanctuary Academy. However, the fully accredited registered status remains continuous since 2008.
All of our Teacher Training Programs are registered and recognized by the Canadian Yoga Alliance CYT (Certified Yoga Teacher), Yoga Alliance of the United States RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher). Our graduates enjoy the benefits of this training for a lifetime. Some are teaching around the world, many here in our local community. We have created comprehensive programs that will become the foundation of your yoga career.
Yoga Sanctuary Academy’s programs focus on providing the highest caliber of teacher training. Successful graduates will feel confident to teach classes in Ashtanga, Hatha and Vinyasa lineage. We admit a limited number of trainees into the program. Yoga Sanctuary Academy offers assistance to trainees through regular communication and updates both in-studio and online.
