Colynn Vosburgh, a Canadian Registered Nurse/Medical Student turned Yoga Instructor, brings her own unique flare of west meets east to the subject of anatomy. After specializing for over 17 years in the Emergency Room, the current state of the medical system encouraged Colynn to leave her medical career and pursue a new one, one that would impact the health of the world in a more positive way, teaching yoga. Her knowledge of the body, dis-ease, injury, prevention and health, and her fun, easy going nature combine to create an interactive, experiential and exciting class that offers the knowledge necessary to understand body mechanics, safely instructing students through an asana practice and yet bringing awareness to the philosophical and traditional healing methods and understanding the impact of self related to physical health.

Colynn has practiced yoga for over 19 years, and chose to increase her knowledge of yoga by attending a teacher training over 5 years ago, that coincidentally started at the same time her short list to medical school came through. It was apparent to her almost immediately that Medical School was not the answer to health care burnout, living her passion, supporting people in self-healing and empowering women was. Fresh out of yoga teacher training, Colynn was asked to teach the anatomy portion of a YTT and it wasn’t long until Med School and nursing were history. Colynn has participated in over 20 YTTs as an anatomy instructor and has more recently been running her own trainings, inviting the most knowledgeable teachers to share their gift.

Colynn has also been visiting Costa Rica for over 4 years, running several retreats and eventually making it one of her home bases, now that she lives the nomadic lifestyle.

program goals

This transformational Yoga Alliance (YA) accredited 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is designed to advance your yoga education by building upon the foundation of your current 200-Hour Certification. Upon successful completion of the training program, with your YA approved 200-hour certification, you will be eligible to apply for your 500 RYT.

The Foundational Pillars of This Training Include:

1. Experience – to be in integrity as a teacher it is important that you practice what you preach. Therefore, to teach, it must come from experience. Allow yourself the space to let go of the teacher role and fully immerse yourself in the practices and the healing that takes place in surrender.

2. Exploration – to be a successful and skillful teacher, one must be authentic and knowledgeable. Exploration coupled with personal feedback supports each teacher in finding clarity in their life, their offerings and their business. 

3. Integration – In teacher training we are able to retreat from the ordinary and assess, reassess and/or create a plan of action. Imperative to a successful landing back in your everyday world post yoga teacher training immersion, is integration. More than just learning and experiencing the practices, together we will create a tool belt to support your integration back into your current teaching, your personal yoga practices and how to also share these tools with clients and students.

4. Clearing – all of the coaching, practices and teachings in the training are chosen and arranged in a specific order to support and launch you into the next chapter of your yoga inquiry and career.

This training is unique because not only does it follow a specific curriculum, it has the space to tailor the training to suit your wants and needs in your personal practice, your teaching practice and your business. You will receive individual feedback on your current teaching style and we will discuss how to make your presence, classes and offerings more aligned and authentic.

Practicum hours allow space for us to co-create the direction of your focus in the training. You will be teaching classes, meditations and presenting a final project based on what you want to incorporate into your teaching (or personal practice). Eg. If you want to focus on Yin & Chakras, your classes will incorporate your focus into them and the presentation could be the outline of a retreat you want to run or if you want to coach people through the chakras.

We look further at finding a completely balanced teaching and personal practice by:

  • Focusing on, experiencing and diving deeper into Vinyasa Yoga (important for cardiovascular health), Hatha Yoga (important for strength building), Yin Yoga (important for exercising the stretchy tissues) & Restorative Yoga (important for healing).
  • Refining your teaching skills and verbal cues/ demonstrate assists/ refine alignment of common poses included within the 4 styles.
  • Creating inspiring themes for your class to integrate the mental/emotional inquiry with the postures.
  • Enhancing your knowledge of pose variations to adapt the postures to anybody, any age, health condition, or limitation.
  • Diving deeper into the 7 Chakras and the chakra system as a whole. We will explore each chakra individually and connect the teachings and concepts to the physical body, our emotional states and current energetic balances. 
  • Learning how to create and effectively teach a Chakra Balancing class, Chakra Balancing Meditation, and Chakra Workshops.
  • Deepening your understanding of how to apply functional anatomy and physiology in your yoga teaching practice, your own physical body and daily activities.
  • Increasing your understanding of the Nervous System and its connection with our emotions, body and dis-ease processes.

testimonials

The Frik-Shuhn Yoga 200hr YTT was absolutely amazing! I came to yoga with nothing more than a curiosity and desire to increase my physical movement. This YTT not only satisfied my curiosity, but taught me so much about myself, relating to others, and inspired me to dig deeper into the path of Yoga. I felt that the online platform and having the 200hrs spread out was an excellent way to learn as it gave me the chance to really let the teachings sink in and I was able to integrate them into my life. Colynn is an excellent teacher; her knowledge, life experiences and transparency created a space in which the physical and conceptual teachings of Yoga were available to everyone and not just those who fit in a guru box or a yoga clique. Colynn also had the students sequence and theme our own classes as well as write our own meditations which I think makes better students and better teachers. I can say with absolute honesty that this YTT totally transformed my understanding of Yoga and has inspired me to make Yoga a part of my life and to share my inspiration with others! So freaking great!

I wanted to do a 200 hr yoga teacher training “someday”. I figured when the kids were older and I could travel and take a month away, I’d do it then. The most amazing opportunity presented itself during the pandemic. Colynn was hosting a teacher training in Costa Rica and just as it was about to start, the world came to a grinding halt. She made the decision to provide the teacher training over 10 weekends online. THIS, I could do! So, my someday had arrived! I worried about being the least experienced or “bendy” and was also nervous about doing the training online. How effective would the posture labs be without hands on assistance? Well, I can assure you that Colynn’s strong verbal cueing is the only assistance you’ll need. She teaches in such a way that you feel and understand the postures in your own body, with a focus on the functional versus aesthetic. She would remind us that the goal was not to aim for a “look” but instead to aim for the feeling. This direction lends to an atmosphere of body acceptance and makes it easier to learn. I was so focused on being in my own body that it didn’t matter what I looked like compared to someone else. Colynn’s strong anatomy knowledge from her experience in nursing and med school is a HUGE benefit. As students in a yoga teacher training, our goal is to work with people and their unique bodies. Having a strong understanding of anatomy will be an incredible asset to you and to your students so that you can teach safely and effectively. I had so many “ah ha!” moments during this training and I credit Colynn fully for igniting a passion to dig even deeper into anatomy and functional movement. I’ve completely changed the trajectory of my life by taking this training and am now deep into the anatomy and functional movement rabbit hole and loving it! There’s so many positive things I can say about my experience in this training, but I think the most important to mention is Colynn’s gift of coaching. She is more than a yoga teacher. She has the ability to guide you into a deep awareness of who you are and what might be holding you back. The reason I am teaching now is due to a breakthrough, another “ah ha” moment of realizing I am worthy. Worthy of living the life I’ve always wanted to live. This was a life changing shift of consciousness that would never have happened without Colynn’s intuitive guidance. I highly recommend her training & coaching. It will be the best investment you can make in yourself.
