Common Questions

whistler village yogaReview the most Common Questions we receive about our Whistler Village Yoga Training. 


Whistler Village ~ Common Questions

Do I need a Yoga Mat?

No ~ we have mats available at the Studio.


Is parking available?

There is limited free parking in the Village, however, there are free parking spots located in the day lots ~ a quick 5 minute walk to the Studio.

Find out more about the parking options.

Is this just for people wanting to teach Yoga?

No, absolutely not! Anyone wishing to delve deeper into their practice is welcome to join us. The skills and tools we learn in the program can be applied to many aspects of life… Yoga does not just happen on the mat – it happens in every moment!


Are the fees truly all inclusive?

Our Program Fees posted by program include everything listed.


Is this the initial training for Yoga Teachers?

Yes, this is first program that all prospective teachers attend. There are opportunities for teachers to continue on with advanced programming thereafter.

When you complete our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program you will be certified to teach Hatha & Vinyasa Classes.  Specific programs such as Yin or Restorative are continuing education programs that you will take after this initial training, if you choose to do so.


Is Age an issue?

Yoga knows no age and it is never too late or too early to start. All students must be a minimum of 18 Years of age to take the program, but from there on everyone is welcome in our program.

If it is any inspiration, our oldest graduate (Khatun, December 2012) was in her late 70′s!


What if I am new to Yoga?

Everyone is new to Yoga each and everyday. There is no perfection in Yoga, so everyone is welcome at the level they are at. In the program, we all start from the beginning, together!


When I leave the program, will I be able to teach public classes?

Absolutely! Rest-assured that our program is not just a cookie-cutter program designed to get students in & out the door as quickly as we can. Our focus is you, the student, and the student becoming the teacher. Your teaching will be a direct reflection of our program and our intention is based on providing you with all the tools you need to succeed. We will have failed our students if we have provided them with anything less.


Do I need to be fluent in English?

We welcome students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Due to the intensity of the program, we require all students be fluent in the English language (reading, writing & speaking).


I am Canadian, will I receive a T2202?

No, for this program you will receive an official receipt for all payments received, however you will not receive a T2202 slip at the end of the year. Based on our current tuition structure, we are not required to be registered with PCTIA and therefore do not provide the T2202 slips.

The official receipt we provide can be used for income tax purposes against your income earned. Should you need to apply for a BC Student Loan, PCTIA programs are the only ones that can offer that additional benefit.


Policy on alcohol, smoking & drug use?

We ask that all students do their best to refrain from alcohol and drug use during the program. Prescription medication is acceptable assuming it is not being used recreationally.  

Smoking is acceptable, but only in the designated areas.  If you are a smoker, please ensure you list it on the application.  

NOTE:  Some of our Locations are NON-SMOKING Facilities.  

All that being said, when possible, we will provide some local wine during your graduation celebration for students who would like to enjoy a glass!

The smoking area for Spain & Whistler Retreat is located in one of the areas away from the main house.
