Island Yoga Vista is well established in the blending of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy, with over 20 years of service offering Ayurveda Yoga Therapy training programs and sessions as well as teaching classical yoga classes. The purpose of this Ayurveda Yoga Wellness Consultant Certification is to make this broader perspective of yoga available through a traditional apprenticeship style of training thereby expanding this ancient knowledge to people who may not be able to attend a regular yoga class for various reasons.
This program grew out of an inspired vision based on trainings in Integrative Yoga Therapy, Bihar School of Yoga and Chakrapani Ayurveda to create a unique offering focused on equipping individuals thoroughly with these timeless skills and offering lifelong mentorship and support. It began with a group of 6 apprentices at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga, all committed to serving their local communities as well as continuing their own evolutionary growth under the guidance of Sandra Sagarmurti Shotton.
Sandra has been a member of the US Yoga Alliance and the International Association of Yoga Therapists since 1997, and a member of the Canadian Yoga Alliance since 2014.
The requirements for a student to be eligible for the foundation level of this apprenticeship is a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training certificate from any school, strong motivation and a positive attitude.
The program is limited to five apprentices this year due to the Covid 19 guidlines for 2020-21
