    As teachers, we all need inspiration to stay fierce and true. We never stop learning because we don’t ever want to stop teaching. We created our advanced program to offer a major lift to your spirit, knowledge and integrity. Whether you want to get back in the teaching game, go deeper into your own unique voice or learn the SÅANA Method, you will find a community of colleagues and mentors ready to dive, heart first, into inspiration with you.

    The advanced program is comprised of two modules: core and inspire. Take them together or separately. Core module is an anatomical, spiritual and mechanical exploration of the bodies deep muscular system. Learn to guide your students to use their core to move with grace and strength. Inspire module gives you the keys to teach SÅANA inspire. Build a class to a peak pose with fine-tuned body mechanics. You will have the skills to create a class that properly prepares students to open up to true flow.

    SÅANA core and SÅANA inspire are the embodiments of our beliefs: move with soul and from the soul, stay grounded in movement, breath deep and free. Our teachers all bring their own experience and spirit to the class, but we stay rooted to our principles. This commitment to our core beliefs and equal commitment to ourselves is what we hope to spark in you.

  • Testimonials
  • ‘I really enjoyed my training with Jackie, she makes me feel seen. She really pays a lot of attention to each of us individually. She offers thoughtful and constructive feedback. I also really enjoyed that she incorporated active listening exercises where we had to hold space for another person without answering each other. It was challenging but also eye opening. It made me realise just how valuable holding space for one another is and how much we don’t listen to each other. It was a powerful experience.’ (Foundations YTT 2020)

    ‘I have been taking Jackie Szabo’s classes for over the past 5 years since I moved back to Toronto, and I am amazed at the evolution of my own strength, flexibility and confidence that I have been able to amount to in my practice from training in her classes. Jackie is a natural teacher, she holds the space with great poise, a calming voice and cues intelligently from experience, compassion and sound knowledge of the body and mind. Her classes are accessible for all students whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi looking to be challenged, Jackie’s classes are an escape to a safe space to playfully explore your practice while giving your brain a beneficial meditative rest from the crazy hustle and bustle of every daily life. I have now had the privilege to learn first hand from her in the YTT online L1 & L2 teacher training programs and can’t believe how much much knowledge of anatomy, understanding of the movements of the body and comprehension of sequencing has expanded in such a short window. The program which she hand crafted is designed with such thoughtfulness, logic and immense support. Jackie always makes herself available for guidance and constructive feedback to assist you on your journey and education. I can’t say enough good things about my experience learning from her teachings, and highly recommend it to anyone looking to expand their practice or become a teacher’.  (Online YTT L1 + L2 2020)

    ‘Training with Jackie was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only is Jackie a wealth of knowledge when it comes to yoga, energy and mindfulness, she is also incredibly empathetic, kind and understanding. I learned so much about myself from even just her presence alone, and I am incredibly thankful for all that she gave to me through the YTT level 1 program. She truly incites self-love in her students and anyone would be so fortunate to have a chance to grow their practice and skills with her. Thank you!!’ (Online YTT L1 2020)

    ‘Without exaggeration I can say taking the training with Jackie was the best decision I made in 2020. Jackie is extraordinarily wise and knowledgeable about yoga. More importantly, she consistently showed incredible care and compassion toward her students. Throughout the workshops she challenged us in many creative ways. It’s only in those intense moments that I learned the most about myself, and progressed in teaching and beyond. I was fortunate to be in the studio with Jackie, the faculty, and the wonderful people in my class. Together we have, and will continue to explore ourselves and the fascinating world of yoga.’ – Evey (Foundations YTT 2020)

    ‘I went into the teacher training program with Jackie just wanting to deepen my practice.   Instead, I found a place where I learnt how to see others and be seen myself with all my imperfections.    Jackie and her team created, from a group of strangers, a safe space where we could have healthy growth to find “Your Voice”.   What an experience that I had an honor to be a part of.  Thank you always.’ (Foundations YTT 2019)
