Toronto April 2020 Mind Body Fitness Conference

We are excited to stay in Toronto for our second Mind Body Fitness of 2020 with our April conference. We are returning the Ramada Plaza Toronto, conveniently located in Toronto's colourful Garden District. When you're through exploring the Garden District, you won't need to go much further than the other side of Yonge St. and Queen St., where the lights and excitement of the Entertainment district await. Or head up Yonge St. a few blocks and explore the shopping mecca of Yorkville. Here on business? The financial district too is only minutes from our central location.

During our Mind Body Fitness conferences, you will have the opportunity to take trainings for our RYT 200 or 300 hour path, as well as our Specialty Tracks. We offer a wide variety of options during every event.

LEVEL FIVE: Unification

Level Five brings together all that you’ve learned in your YogaFit 200‐hour teacher training, and shifts the emphasis from external accomplishments to internal growth. Applying the powerful practice of staying in the present moment, an integral tenet of the essence of YogaFit, this two‐day intensive may be the end of your official teacher training, but it’s just the beginning of your journey inward toward true integration.

YogaFit Restorative 08:00 - 18:00
YogaFit Restorative

YogaFit’s four­-day Restorative workshop is essential for the yoga therapist to understand how to introduce the profoundly soothing effects of this restful practice to clients and students. Using props to completely support the body, restorative yoga creates passive poses that induce a deep state of relaxation, awaken dull areas of the body, and encourage the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

Note: This course fulfills part of the requirements for the YogaFit HealthCare 900-hour certification, as well as the YogaFit 300‐hour teacher training. The one-day YogaFit Props training is included in this four-day workshop.

YogaFit Props

Tight shoulders, hamstrings or hips can prevent even the most seasoned student from experiencing comfort and ease while doing yoga or even moving through the world. By reducing muscular effort and encouraging proper alignment, effective use of yoga props—blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps and even chairs—helps everyone to feel successful and enjoy the full benefits their practice.

YogaFit’s two day Yin Yoga training focuses on the other areas of our body often not considered in most yoga practices or fitness modalities. We are focused on the deeper tissues of our body: bones, joints, fascia and ligaments.  All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.  Throughout the training, we consistently work on surrendering to the pose, finding a sense of comfort through discomfort, learning to celebrate the stillness, while connecting with mindfulness.
