"To work with Trish and Maddi is to experience freedom from judgment, responsibility and thought without conditions, expectations or goals. It is to enter a realm of playful, light hearted, exploration of yourself. It is life changing, expansive and fulfilling.  It is pure joy, love and light. It is letting go of what no longer serves you and allowing grace, intuition and guidance to consume you. It is simply magic that must be experienced to be believed." -Lisa RMT


200 hour Yoga teacher training- Living on purpose

This is not your regular Yoga Teacher Training!  

This YTT’s focus is NOT to quit your job and become a studio yoga teacher (though you could choose to do that, after this training)

LIVING ON PURPOSE encourages taking the teachings, the wisdom and the love to places beyond yoga studio walls.

LIVING ON PURPOSE's aim is to infuse all spaces of your life with self love practices, not necessarily as a career change; but to embody this wisdom to bring more light to where you currently reside. 

LIVING ON PURPOSE ’s focus is to help YOU to remember your practice, your rituals, your voice and share it every where in your lives. To NOT necessarily be the “Yoga Teacher” who holds the light- but use this light to reflect who you already are. The Hygienist who holds the light. The Accountant who holds the light. The Lawyer who holds the light. The Barista who holds the light. The Doctor who holds the light. The parent, the Grandparent, the Partner, the School Teacher - who holds this light- even if you never share the postures, you are aware you are holding the light for those who have not yet remembered.

Trish and Maddi want to help build an army of heart warriors, who are remembering WHO WE ARE and reminding others.

you are what you have been seeking! You are it! Stop looking and start remembering

Robyn has clinical experience in myofascial release and osteopathic techniques such as craniosacral therapy, strain-counter-strain, and muscle energy. 

 Robyn has a special interest in women's health and has focused her training in healthy menstrual cycles, fertility, pregnancy, labour/birth, postpartum, and pain science. She approaches treatment using a biopsychosocial-spiritual model of care that truly values the importance of the body, mind, and spirit.  Robyn aspires to help women learn to trust and appreciate their body, to empower them to take charge of their health, and to focus their treatment on what is most important to them.

why this training ?

From Trish :  
I have been asked for YEARS to run a YTT, by devote students and have hesitated until today.  I have attended teacher trainings around the world, with some of the best.  And my experience over and over again was... Yoga Teacher Training goes deep into self inquiry, maybe even deeper than years of therapy and self help... the bandaid gets ripped off and past wounds are revealed.  I've witnessed people get really raw and then leave teacher training wide open, bleeding; without the tools to hold these wounds, support them or heal them.  
I felt strongly I would not create a teacher training until I found a psychotherapist to partner up with- to be 100% certain that the space and everyone in the space could be held, accepted and supported as inquiry deepens and bandaids come off.  As I've watched Maddi and I's partnership flourish the past year- I knew it was time.  I'd found the psychotherapist I trusted to hold this beautiful, deep journey with me. 
This training promises to hold you.  
To support you.  
To keep you safe.  
To point you in the direction of specialized support, if need be.

This training promises to guide YOU to take good care of your own mental, physical and spiritual health FIRST and FOREMOST.
