Colynn Vosburgh YTT
PROGRAM DIRECTOR COLYNN VOSBURGH
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.
The program goals for this online YTT is to have you completing the program feeling very knowledgeable about being a yoga teacher in what we think are most important skills as a teacher. How to sequence and theme a well thought out classes. Posture breakdowns with anatomical alignment to lead safe and clear classes. Strong business concepts weaved throughout the teachings to guide the teacher on next steps out of the training to bring in finances right away and start building your brand.
All the classes are offered live over Zoom and are also recorded, so if you miss the class you can watch a replay of the session.
This online program offers:
- A deep dive into philosophy of The Gita, The Sutra, The 8 Limbs of Yoga and more with Wendy.
- A deep dive into the technical aspects of teaching like anatomy, sequencing, theming, asana labs and more with Colynn.
- Additional subjects like chakras, ayurveda, vayus, koshas and soooooo much more!
YOGA TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM CURRICULUM
The process of learning to teach requires that you dive into your own life, your own practice and therefore requires that you prepare to go deep – emotionally, physically, intellectually & spiritually. There is a lot of material to cover in a few months, so please ensure that you arrive for this experience ready to dive in and participate. Please ensure as much as possible, that you are able to address obligations and outside commitments before you begin. Get started on your reading requirements, begin a 5 minute a day meditation practice and start journaling the process.
There is a heavy emphasis on anatomy and alignment, sequencing and theming, meditation and pranayama, and business and professionalism. So please be prepared to be on time, to have daily reading, practice and journaling assignments, and to complete a mid-term & final teaching demo with in person feedback, the missing of classes is ok, as classes are recorded, yet all classes need to be completed in order to receive a certificate.
Remember, yoga is a journey of self-discovery and building our sensitivity to the world around us. We will be discovering and releasing attachments to that which is familiar and constricting in order to build our light to shine brighter than ever.
If you have any specific questions – please feel free to reach out to us and we will get back to you ASAP.
Yoga Practice is preferable, but not a must.
- Be willing to have/start a practice during the training.
- The student of this teacher training MUST be willing to go deeper than surface level. The trainings are focused on how to teach yoga, yet the teachings are transformational.
- Be open-minded.

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! 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. This will be the best investment you can make in yourself.
I loved and was so impressed with Colynn & Anamaya's 200 hour YTT! I felt that the curriculum was well balanced and thorough. It was such a beautifully curated mix of asanas, philosophy, history and other related topics. The addition of the guest teachers also helped to add some fresh energy and focus to the group. I feel like I can easily and safely teach a yoga class now that I've graduated... and I also feel I've deepened my own understanding and practice of yoga in ways I didn't anticipate. This 10 week journey seemed to unfold very naturally and organically. Thank you so much for this magical experience.
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.
