Established in 1996, The Yoga Studio College of Canada is Calgary’s pioneer teacher training facility. Known as the ‘home studio’ to many, it has trained over 1,000 graduates from Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan. These trainees were trained to teach in a variety of settings including corporate, health and educational facilities.
