Canadian Yoga Regulations(9 posts) (9 voices)
Is anyone familiar with Yoga regulations in Canada (Ontario particularly) or know where to find them. I would like to take this online course but want to be sure that it is recognized here.
There are no regulations for Yoga instructors, at this time, in Canada. Also, there are many Canadian graduates from this program.
Here is a Canadian Yoga teachers association: http://www.canadianyogicalliance.com/
Certification alone is enough to teach in North America.
Canada is truly a free country. Other than any standard business requirements, you have nothing to worry about. Once you get certified as a Yoga teacher you are all set.
Agreed, Canada has no restictions on Yoga. Contrary to popular opinion, there is very little government regulation of Yoga. Yoga was banned in the Soviet Union and Soviet Block coutries, but those days have passed.
Now you can learn Yoga and teach Yoga without fear, unless you live in North Korea.
Now you have me considering the option of teaching Yoga in Canada. The Hot spots for Yoga instructors seem to be British Columbia and Ontario. A Yoga certification is enough to teach Yoga within the US and Canada. This is the same for any state in the US or any province in Canada.
There are no restrictions in Canada for teaching Yoga. You don't even have to be certified, but you should be certified and insured to be on the safe side.
Just for the record, at this time, there are no restrictions regarding certification for Yoga teachers, in Canada. If you are in business, you should register it, but otherwise, there is nothing to worry about.Posted 5 years ago #
