The next Yogaheart Yoga Teacher Training begins this September 2017
Yoga Teacher Training in the Ancient Tradition
Set in the beautiful atmosphere of the Oakwood House on Lake Banook, the “Deep Teachings of Yoga” is a yoga teacher training program that offers yoga from the heart of understanding, true to the fullness of the yoga tradition. Upon graduation, participants receive a certificate as a Certified Yoga Instructor that meets and exceeds the standards of a 200 hour YTT certification program set by the Yoga Alliance.
YTT Sessions, Classes & Modules
Support, assist, discover and develop through teachings, practices, dialogues and exercises in the pursuit of self-understanding and growth.
Deepen your knowledge, practice, and experience of the plentiful gifts that yoga has to offer.
Provide teaching communication skills and tools that can be used professionally with confidence by the end of the program.
Dive Into Ancient Yoga Tradition
The practice of Hatha, Pranayama, and Raja Yoga, as well as specialty practices will be explored.
Comprehensive courses on Anatomy, Teaching Methodology and Training, Nutrition, Lifestyle, and Ethics, as well as specialty courses will be offered such as Mandala Drawing, Chanting, the Chakra system, and much more.
Focusing on Yoga philosophy, history, spirituality, and meditation, yoga is a system of self-verification. The contemplative track will be open ended and driven by the participants own interest. Yoga is not a belief system, but an investigative system towards greater Self-understanding, and ultimately realization and enlightenment. The contemplative track will unfold uniquely for each participant depending on their own interest and exploration.
I had the great pleasure of being a recent student of Mandee’s during a Chakra Yoga Teacher’s Training in Thailand. Without a doubt, Mandee is one of the most passionate, kind, honest, and inspired teachers I have worked with. She teaches with a deep appreciation and knowledge of the Eastern Tradition, and with a dedication to fostering a truthful, compassionate, enjoyable, and learning rich yoga environment. She has a keen understanding of the human mind and psychology and an equally comprehensive understanding of the human body, movement, and alignment. As such, she is not only a wonderful teacher of yoga postures (asanas), but also a wonderful teacher of some of the often neglected, yet immensely important aspects of yoga including meditation, self-study, contemplation, energetics, and sound. Mandee will never fail to make you smile, laugh, or feel included in her classes. She always encourages light-heartedness and deep presence of mind. Mandee is a life long learner of the science of yoga, of the intricacies of the human condition, and of the mysteries of consciousness, life, and the universe. It was an honour to be part of her classes and a gift to have her share her knowledge and experience.Daniel Klein, Victoria BC
I am doing a 500hr YTTC in Thailand and I’ve had the pleasure of having Mandee as one of the main teachers there. She is very knowledgeable on all aspects of yoga, asanas, pranayama, phylosophy and goes thoroughly into anatomy, physiology and teaching methodology. Some of these subjects might seem boring to certain people but Mandee’s energy and enthusiasm make it fun and easy to follow and grasp. I’ve come to yoga practice some days very tired and left full of energy and not wanting to go in Savasana thanks to her love of sharing her passion and life. If you are thinking about taking Mandee’s YTT but you feel like something is holding you back. I say go for it all the way. You’ll never regret it and you’ll come out of it a new person.

For those considering training with Mandee: Wow!!! Mandee is amazing! There is so much to say about I am afraid I will not do her beautiful teaching, generous spirit and healing touch justice! Not only is her love for yoga contagious her knowledge on the subject is incredible. From chakra energy, mind-physio connection, mantras, yoga philosophy and history to class sequencing, assisting teaching methodology and anatomy (I could write a novel about how inspiring her anatomy classes are!) she is highly qualified in all. And the best part is that she presents the material in such a way that is easily relatable and attainable. I have done a few teacher trainings and advanced modules and the information can be overwhelming. Not with Mandee. I was able to retain and apply it all. That alone is something extremely hard to find when looking for a teacher training. Not only will you learn about yoga, you will discover more about yourself which you simply cannot put a price tag on. Life changing. I cannot recommend Mandee and her school enough. Know you will be in good and caring hands when you train with her. Thank you Mandee!Jenna Davi, San Francisco
While taking the Chakra Yoga YTT at Pyramid Yoga in Thailand this Winter, I have personally experienced wonderful spiritual, emotional, and physical transformation. I would like to share how Mandee (Yogaheart), one of our teachers, has a magic about her teaching that makes me so comfortable and motivated in every class. She is a playful, wise, and talented yoga teacher. With her expert knowledge of the Chakras, energetic Anatomy, and techniques of Yoga, I’ve gained invaluable understanding and insight into the inner self, a sense of connection to this wonderful universe, and enough knowledge and experience to give me the confidence to teach. A big thank you to Mandee!Traci Latimer
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Mandee Labelle. What an inspirational teacher. She literally seems to eat sleep and breathe yoga. Mandee is so in love with yoga and it’s incredibly obvious not only does she have an incredible multitude of knowledge to share but she is also a great example of embodiment of the Yoga Spirit. Even lessons from the very first days have stayed with me and have become foundations of my own daily practice. I’m absolutely grateful that we have her here in Thailand sharing with us and can’t wait for tomorrow’s class!Josh Fairbrother, Vancouver BC
I am currently studying with Mandee from YogaHeart as part of my Chakra Yoga Teacher Training Course and have found her support exactly that…she IS the heart in yoga, teaching directly from her own and connecting my practice to mine. I have studied with many teachers worldwide yet none have delivered information in such a way as to create a completely stress-free environment and mindset to allow me to fully engage with the teaching, and to retain the information with ease. She has a passion for teaching and sharing the joy and FUN of learning, and has a great depth in understanding and experience in the practice of yoga and wisdom on our fascinating mind/body relationship. When teaching the science and anatomy material, she manages to communicate in a language that I can actually understand whereas previously, this part has been difficult for me to take in and apply. Anyone who has a curiousity in yoga, or is ready to immerse in the deep and beautiful waters of its lessons, either as a potential teacher or as a keen practitioner, would benefit from Mandee’s infectious passion and enthusiasm for yoga and LIFE!Nadia Staden, UK
