This program will qualify you to be an inspiring, safe and effective teacher. However, we also have many students who enroll solely for their own personal development. Tools learned during this program will enable you to gain greater fulfillment from your yoga practice and your life.

At Semperviva we don’t follow a single lineage, style or approach. We pride ourselves on having a diverse teaching staff with different backgrounds so that you can gain a well-rounded view of all styles. Through the training and your teaching practice, we want you to find your own voice and a teaching method that is authentic to you.

All Semperviva Yoga College faculty are Yoga Alliance Certified at the 200 hour or 300 hour level, and continue their studies to bring you the freshest inspiration possible. Our teachers range from all traditions of yoga and are committed to your higher learning. Assistant teachers may be a part of all trainings. For more information on our teacher training faculty, please visit our Please see our Core faculty and Master Teachers. To meet some of our faculty members, attend an Information Session.

100% attendance is required for all Semperviva trainings.
On occasion we may be able to make a special arrangement for a missed class for the 200 hour training. Please ensure that any such requests arising from scheduling conflicts are communicated to Semperviva prior to the training, so that we can discuss whether a special arrangement will be possible. There will usually be an additional charge for such arrangement (for example, private sessions are charged at $100/hour).

Yoga Alliance registers both individual yoga teachers and yoga teacher training programs (schools) who have complied with educational standards established by the organization. Their mission is to lead the yoga community, set standards, foster integrity, provide resources, and uphold the teachings of yoga. Although registration with the Yoga Alliance is not legally required for teaching yoga, most studios and fitness centers will require teachers to be registered with the Yoga Alliance. All Semperviva Yoga Teacher Training graduates are automatically eligible for Yoga Alliance registration.

Semperviva is registered with the PCTIA (the Private Careers Training Institute Agency). It is the regulatory agency for private training institutions in the province of BC. All private career training institutions in BC (including yoga schools) are required to be registered with PCTIA. PCTIA help to ensure your educational experience is a good one by requiring quality standards in schools – from contracts and refunds to course records. For more information please visit PCTIA’s comprehensive website.

It is a Yoga Alliance requirement that in order to maintain your status as a registered yoga teacher, you must participate in continuing education. Semperviva has lots to offer! Our Continuing Education courses cover all aspects of yoga from philosophy to advanced asana. Refine your teaching skills, and develop a creative edge for your own practice and your students. In addition to our AYTT courses, Master teachers from around the globe including Shiva Rea, Mark Whitwell, Gurmukh, Dharma Mittra, Max Strom, Rolf Gates, Simon Park, Twee Merrigan, and many more are included in our Semperviva programs to bring you fresh inspiration and in depth learning.
