Mindful Movements Yoga School offers The Ambassador Yoga Teacher Training which is a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance registered program.
The training hours have been broken down into four modules, each of which contain all the fundamental elements required for your certification and registration with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher 200 (RYT 200).
4 x 50 Hour Modules = 200 Hour Training (See below for the descriptions of the four modules included in your training.)
The Enlightened Life Module
Explore the wisdom of a Yogic lifestyle through the Yamas and Niyamas, commonly called the do’s and don’ts of yoga. These insights form the foundation of the Eight Limb Path, a series of yoga philosophies that provide useful guidelines to ground, inspire and enlighten you. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali will also serve as a reference to assist you in threading the truths of these ancient teachings into your modern life.
Required Reading: The Sutras of Patanjali
The Anatomy of a Healthy Life Module
Learn the technical aspects of the classical yoga postures (asanas) and the human anatomy and physiology required to teach them. You’ll advance your own physical practice and become confident instructing five powerful breathing techniques(pranayama). Deepen your understanding of the ways yoga creates strength and balance with a complete examination of the body locks (bandhas) and how modern science is used to support and demystify yogic traditions.
Finding Calm in the Age of Speed Module
Yog-ahhh! The magic of yoga lies in the connection between the body, the spirit and the mind. Deepen your understanding of this connection through a comprehensive look at our internal energetic system, the Chakras! Becoming aware of the association between yogic anatomy and physical anatomy, you’ll recognize unbalanced emotional, physical and intellectual states and acquire tools that help restore balance. You’ll start teaching the classical postures in gentle and restorative ways with practical modifications that make them accessible to all your students. You’ll also be able to teach others how to find calm though chanting, meditation, and yoga nidra.

What Our Students are Saying…
Deciding to enroll in YTT in Mindful Movements School with Kym, was one of the best decisions I’ve made in some time. Regardless of your reason for wanting to join; Kym creates a warm and nurturing environment to learn more about Yoga and practice new skills. The entire experience from the first session to graduation was a joy and I feel fortunate to have such an experienced teacher to learn from and available to help me on my yoga journey.Debora Smith
Kym is an exemplary educator! She approaches her teaching in an unpretentious, approachable, and physiologically-grounded manner. She also fosters a communal and collaborative approach to learning. This course is an excellent tool for anyone wishing to expand and deepen their personal yoga practice or yoga teaching skills. Thank you, Kym! I learned so much and had fun doing it!Judy Heissler
Under the direction and guidance of Kym Riley, an experienced, passionate and knowledgeable teacher, I was able to not only learn but to practice and absorb what I learned through that practice. Kym led us through theory and practice lesson plans combining and threading the two together in such a way that it all made sense. There is SO much more to yoga than the average person realizes. Kym opened my eyes to a whole new opportunity to not only incorporate yoga into my daily routine, but to be in a position to teach and share this practice with others as I journey into my next adventure as a yoga teacher. I feel equipped and prepared to begin this journey with the knowledge imparted to me.
A highlight of the training for me, was the opportunity to partner up with each of the other students in our training group. Each week we switched up and shared our practices, thoughts and training activities with these new partners or groups. This allowed for variety and an opportunity to work with different personalities… all of which opened my eyes to the solidarity the yoga community imparts, while embracing every single person’s uniqueness. This was so empowering to all of the students. I started a student and ended up with 13 new friends!Sue Millington
