One session was all it took for me to know Linda is the one I wish to learn from. Her radiant energy, calming demeanour, and vibrant personality instantly attracted me. The way she commands the room, holds the space, and encourages inward gaze captivated me. Acknowledgement to her lineage and her gurus is what distinguishes Linda from the crowd, her emphasis on yoga being so much more than asana practice is what solidified her as a teacher for me. It is my hope to learn as much from her as possible so I can continue to spread the warmth, joy, and light she has to offer.

What makes Radiant Soul Yoga different from other yoga teacher training? 

The biggest difference is that Radiant Soul Yoga is a traditional school of yoga that continues to represent yoga as a transformational spiritual discipline, ensuring a deep connection to the heart.

Unique Holistic Approach

  • Have your preconceived ideas of yoga challenged with a holistic approach rooted in the ancient wisdom and power of yoga, ayurveda and tantric traditions
  • Learn from my 35+ years of experience and self transformation with clear and precise practices delivered in approachable ways that reflect scientific and peer-informed data 
  • Discover asana and pranayama as a spiritual practice, each practice allowing you to explore a deep state of consciousness

Meditation Matters

  • While many YTTs gloss over meditation, deep and potent transformation is available through breathwork and meditation (the physical practice is only ONE of the means to bring about the state of yoga)
  • Create your own consistent meditation practice and feel empowered to share meditation with others

Function Over Form

  • RSY unique strategy emphasis asana function, as opposed to form, allowing for a deeper overall approach to practices (you still learn the fundamentals of alignment)
  • Learn to adapt your instruction based on the body cues of your students so you can serve and honor each individual student
  • Enhance your ability to teach, treat, and heal the whole person

Yoga OFF the Mat

  • Infuse yoga into every aspect of daily life – hatha yoga offers a path through the body, but as we practice with our bodies, we also pay attention to what comes up in our mind and hearts
  • My goal is to help you use the ancient science of yoga and the yoga tradition to solve modern problems

Interactive Experience

  • By moving through the training together, you learn not only from me, but also develop a sense of community from an incredible group of peers
  • Get built-in motivation as you flex your newfound leadership skills.

What people are saying...

Authentic of True Yoga

"I found Linda's teaching authentic of true yoga, the ancient wisdom that she shares is so valuable in defining yourself as a yogi. I was looking for a yoga teacher training that was not only going to teach the foundation but take me on a journey that yoga became part of my everyday life. I am so blessed to have Linda as a mentor guiding me back to the mat. I have absolutely loved the training. Linda is a gift to all that step into her yoga teacher training and you will not endure any other intensive training that teaches you the ancient wisdom."

- Julie-Anne Salter

Her classes are warm, welcoming, and have a beautiful spiritual element. The Teacher Training Course delves deep into the origins of yoga, while also being very practical and hands-on."

What makes Radiant Soul Yoga different from other teacher trainings?

Radiant Soul Yoga explores yoga as a practice with the power to reach, heal, and awaken the light of human potential. In it we learn to see and share asana, pranayama, and meditation as foundations for the deeper intent of yoga.

Through practice, theory, and teaching exercises we highlight the practical wisdom teachers need to know and work with to help students experience the richness that yoga potentially offers. You will complete the entire certification track with a changed perspective on yoga and life, a deep understanding of the traditional culture and practice of yoga, and a profound respect for the lineage of yogis who have selflessly preserved and passed on this precious wisdom for thousands of years

Do you need years of yoga practice before signing up for yoga teacher training?

Not at all. This course is accessible to students of all levels and all abilities, including absolute beginners with the desire to deepen their own personal experience of yoga and share what they love.

Can I gain a certificate for this course?

Radiant Soul Yoga is a 200-HR Yoga Alliance approved course. Attending all 5 weekend immersions and completing all online lessons will lead to your complete 200 HR yoga teacher certification.

If you want to teach a holistic, effective and approachable system of yoga, incorporating the Radiant Soul Yoga’s integrated spiritual approach (which includes hatha, vinyasa, Kundalini, kriya, pranayama, mantra, yoga nidra and meditation) into your yoga class, then RSY is a great place to start. With the Traditional Yoga approach you will be on your way to becoming a powerful and authentic teacher backed by lineage, wisdom, and experience.
