How it all started and where it’s going:
Hi, we’re Claire and Aruna, the founders of the Ambassador Yoga Trainer Fast-Track. We started this Teacher Training program as children’s yoga teachers inspired to create a teacher training for our teen yoga students.
Three years later, the first Ambassador Teacher Training was offered in a home studio in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. Four people enrolled; both teens and adults.
Seven years later, we’ve had hundreds of graduates around the world, and the feedback has been tremendous. Grads love the experiential learning and interactive nature of the training as evidenced by the 5 Star reviews on Yoga Alliance, and that little basement studio has grown into an international program.
We have now helped experienced Yoga Teachers in the USA, Canada, Finland, Scotland, and Bali to register their Yoga Schools with Yoga Alliance and lead profitable and powerful trainings.
If you are an experienced yoga teacher, we can help you too.
The Trainer Fast-Track Program guarantees an approved Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Registered Yoga School for qualified Lead Trainers.
