Breathe Live Believe Holistic Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (BLBYTT200)

 10 Month Holistic Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Leanne Wierzbicki. Special 21hr weekend intensive training with Jeff Masters, and sessions with various guest teachers.

Deepen Your Personal Practice. Heal. Grow. Teach.

Are you feeling called to deepening your personal sadhana, expanding your knowledge of Yoga philosophy, tradition, and practices?  Is personal healing a priority for you right now? Do you have a longing to share the Yoga tradition with others?

This 200 contact hour YTT program is offered over the course of 10 months, enabling students to work, study, and integrate their training into daily life!  If your focus is deep personal healing, growth and evolution on your path through this lifetime, this training is for you.

Our program is designed holistically, with a strong foundation rooted in the classical path of Hatha Yoga and the Himalayan Tradition, and a special focus on trauma informed Yoga, to promote the deep inner healing process and spiritual evolution in a safe and supportive environment. Your goal need not be to become a Yoga teacher.  Many of our students are on this journey for purely personal reasons, to deepen their understanding of Yoga and the depth of their sadhana. It is as much a Yogic lifestyle immersion as it is a teacher training.

Immerse yourself in a transformative course of study and practice, within a holistic integrated, trauma sensitive program. Our training is limited to 8 students per year. The program draws from traditional yoga theory and modern knowledge of the body and mind to cover the complete scope of Yoga. Through the use of lecture, asana practice and analysis, group work, self-study and personal practice, I endeavour to guide each of you on a journey into your deepest self, on the path to discovering and understanding patterns behind lifestyle and relationship choices, and to learn to listen to the call of your heart. Through this, you will cultivate your own unique teaching style from a place of authenticity and truth. The opportunity to study and learn from a diverse team of experienced teachers will aid you in deepening your personal practice and in developing well rounded teaching skills. My intention is that you discover the natural healer and teacher within and understand that you are a valuable link in the continuation and lineage of holistic healing and the Yoga tradition. Join us for a unique experience in this in depth, journey into Self.

The Breathe Live Believe 200 ytt was everything a teacher training needs to be, and so much more. Leanne has created this training from a place of integrated knowledge, pure wisdom and directly from the heart. It allows the student to be supported by community while uncovering layers of the Self as you move through this journey. A truly holistic approach, I can’t imagine having done any other training, and hope that your heart guides you to follow.


At the end of September 2018, I graduated from the Breath Live Believe Holistic Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (BLBYTT200) taught by Leanne Wierzbicki, CYA-E-RYT500, BEd, HBA Eng. This was an intense and immersive training program spread out over 10 months. My goal in taking this training was to deepen my personal practice. I had already been practicing yoga asanas for 20 years.

This course truly did deepen and expand my practice. There is so much to learn about the ancient traditions of yoga. I am grateful that my first exposure to delving deeper in these traditions was through the Breath Live Believe program. I was able to become immersed in a program offered in my own area allowing me to continue on with my day-to-day responsibilities. I was exposed to fabulous reading material and guest speakers. I learned the mechanics of the poses by learning about the anatomy. Working on my portfolios expanded my research and organizational skills. I was enlightened to the different types of yoga such as Karma and Bhakti. Even though there is so much more to learn about these 5,000 year old teachings, I am amazed by what I learned in 10 months.

Leanne is an awesome, knowledgeable, and caring teacher. I am motivated to continue on this journey using the skills I learned through this program. Though my intent in taking this program was to deepen my own personal practice, I do have the ability, knowledge, and confidence to begin a journey of sharing what I learned with others.

I highly recommend this program.
