  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “I took classes at several studios in search of a teacher training program that felt "right." Nothing seemed to feel comfortable and authentic to me until I took a class with Navjit Kaur. Half way through that first class I suddenly knew I'd found my place. Navjit Kaur is genuine and professional, and she radiates all that is in the spirit of yoga. The program is thorough and demanding, and it presents fascinating, highly relevant material. The training has given me a solid foundation from which I can build my own practice and from which I can help facilitate the practice of others. This training has not only prepared me well to teach, but it has given me an entirely new perspective on myself and life. I can't recommend it enough!”

    March 2021 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “Yoga and Tea Studio was my choice for teacher training over the last six months. I had the option of doing it internationally, but I am very, very happy that I chose your program. Navjit, thank you! I feel blessed to have met you. This program was a truly a life changing experience, in that, I was not well when I began, and I am now on a wonderful path toward wellness. I now understand why yogis do and say and eat certain things. Yoga can help to end pain and suffering and that this is just the beginning for me! Navjit gave us so much of her heart, passion, knowledge and energy! She is truly a great trainer for yoga teachers! Her level of knowledge is so deep and she gives us so much more than the curriculum. If you wish to become a yoga teacher, take Navjit's program. It is the very best!”

    March 2021 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “My teacher training offered me so much more than what I signed up for. Navjit's expertise and experienced guidance made the program easier to follow and without a doubt more enjoyable. I loved her ways of teaching us a variety of subtleties associated with yogic lifestyle and tradition. Being able to study and practice meditation, nutritional information based on ayurvedic science and vegetarian principles was a great opportunity to transform from inside out. The yoga practices were great and the insights I got from the class helped me tremendously during a rough patch. I would recommend this program to anyone who would like to get a bit closer to the best version of themselves and who is looking to improve their life in multiple aspects!”

    March 2021 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “I feel absolutely blessed to have had the opportunity to do my yoga teacher training with Navjit Kaur. I can’t imagine there is anyone else with as much knowledge, passion and dedication. She shared her experience and expertise with us with such grace and in such detail. Navjit Kaur took the time needed to answer and explain all concepts. If only all teachers could have such patience! Such a clear and conscious delivery of the material. Each class, she pulled something new out to challenge us. I was given the tools to continue to grow, this was a one of a kind experience!”

    March 2021 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “This YTT has been a life changing experience! I have learned what Yoga truly is. From history, philosophy, anatomy and Ayurveda to Asanas, I first and foremost learned about myself. This YTT has taught me that Yoga is a way to connect us, to melt away the separation within us, and with our loved ones and our community. This YTT will help you bridge the gap that exists in the yoga world today between yoga as an exercise and yoga as and integral part of your life.”

    March 2021 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “If you're looking for a yoga teacher training that goes way beyond asana instruction, this is a wonderful program! This program takes you on a deep dive into your own spiritual journey; Navjit Kaur asks her students not only to explore how and what they want to teach, but how they want to walk in this world. The material challenges students to face fears, understand what is blocking them from achieving their goals, and even to re-evaluate those goals and better understand the motivations behind them. It's tough work at times, but the Yogic philosophical instruction/exploration is excellent and well worth the effort.”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “Through this program, I learned the depth of the Yogic tradition through physical practices, meditation, reading texts, and in class teachings and discussions. Navjit Kaur is a remarkable teacher who has put together not only a valuable program, but also offers so much more with her vegan lunches, warm company, and thoughtful conversations. I loved having Navjit Kaur as my instructor - her perspective and teaching was a big impact from the program. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking to blossom their inner yogi and learn how to teach at the same time. ”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “Navjit Kaur is a very experienced, knowledgeable, professional and empathetic teacher, and a leader in our Yoga community. Learning the Hatha Yoga program through her Yoga and Tea Studio, has allowed me to become a very well rounded Yoga teacher. Knowledgeable of the Yoga History and the 8 Limbs and a caring, positive addition to the Yoga Community.”

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “I met some lovely new friends during the course. We bonded and helped support one another throughout the training. These are friends that I will cherish for a life time.

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “Thorough introduction to Hatha yoga, in a warm intimate setting. I found the history of yoga incredibly interesting and also found the business practices useful. The unexpected takeaway for me was how people of many different backgrounds and stages of life can come together and support each other towards a common goal. ”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “When previously doing Yoga, I often felt physically unsafe! Until Navjit Kaur, I really had no idea just how integral the breath is when doing Yoga on and off the mat, a spiritual discipline and practice when breath-initiated in asana, meditation, mantra, is essential for the foundation for transformation. I am sincerely emboldened because I recognize how this has revolutionized my life...eternally grateful,...eternally blessed!”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “It is obvious that Navjit Kaur really cares about creating a yoga training program that is as authentic as possible. It really encompasses the true intention of yoga, and also connected us to mind, body and spirit. I left with a whole new understanding of the use of breath techniques. I really liked going through the yamas and nyamas, reflecting on my life and how to incorporate the principles. I loved the Ayurveda section and learning about my dosha and also the chakra section to gain better understanding of imbalances and outcomes.”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “This program was very comprehensive and challenged me as a student to get out of my comfort zone. We were pushed to not only learn the material but apply it and develop a personal practice in the process. I can't lie the delicious lunches were such a bonus, I looked forward to them each week.”

    April 2020 graduate

  • Yoga & Tea Studio

    “I feel so grateful to have taken my yoga teacher training with Navjit Kaur. I grew as a person and learned so much about yoga history and philosophy. It is was a lovely and challenging journey, but I recommend it 100%. I will never forget this experience! ”

    April 2020 graduate

My name is Navjit Kaur, and I'm the Lead Trainer (E-RYT 500) and creator of this program. I've had the honour of training people like you to become a yoga teacher since 2012. 

My approach in this training is to provide you with the necessary experience of being a student of yoga first, to develop your personal yoga practice at home, so that you can then authentically teach from what you know, and understand the essence of yoga by going your own wins and challenges both on the mat and off.

I'm a mom, wife, Professional Engineer and Yogipreneur, so I understand what it's like to be pulled in so many directions, and is why I love sharing how these ancient yoga philosophy and techniques help you to deal with modern day issues relating to stress, health and relationships. 

My students describe me as having a great sense of humour, as being approachable, caring, inspiring,  an effective communicator, and super organized. My goal is to make this program accessible to varying fitness levels, to provide introspection and growth, an opportunity for you to heal, and be challenged to excel through your perceived blocks. 

I'm also certified as a Food For Life Cooking Instructor, by the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and integrate into the program how plant-based diets can help to prevent and reverse illness. You'll learn many self-care techniques in this program to decrease inflammation and pain from your body so that you can move with more ease and flexibility.

Since 2005, I've taught well over 5000 hours and continue to deepen my own personal practice and the art of teaching by taking continuing education.

Your journey within begins with taking this first step and I look forward to welcoming you on this path!

Questions Your Fellow Peers Asked

Before Signing Up For This Training

Aside from the time spent in-person on the training days, we suggest budgeting 8-10 hours a week towards practicing yoga, homework, and reading. This ensures you get the most out of all the
program has to offer and to experience a transformation both physically and mentally.

A typical week might include:

  • 30-60 minutes of at-home daily yoga practice
  • 1-2 hours of assigned reading
  • Homework and journaling

Participants are expected to review the material and practice at home in the time between training days, so that questions and observations can be discussed in the following training day. 

This program is the perfect fit for you whether you’re just getting started with yoga, or if you’ve been at it for a while.

Everyone is coming to this program with a different background. The most important thing--more than time or years spent practicing -- is your passion, dedication and commitment to your own personal practice and learning. We welcome you regardless of your level and ability, as long as you are passionate about deepening your understanding of Hatha yoga and how to apply this knowledge to everyday life.  If that’s you, this training will be a deeply enriching experience.

Yes, this training is still valuable for you. You can take this training for personal reasons and to deepen your yogi knowledge. However, you may not plan on teaching but in this program in order to show your comprehension of the material you will be asked to demonstrate and teach to your peers, and friends/family.

Our curriculum is based on what Yoga Alliance sets forth as guidelines, and what makes it unique is our lead trainer, Navjit Kaur, and her 15+ years of study of yoga, meditation, wellness, and teacher training experience.

This program continuously evolves by including the latest and best of publications and tools to facilitate your learning, implementation and teaching yoga. Also it includes an online component with the library of recordings and resources available to you for revisiting material and as a lifetime reference.

The delivery of this program is to address you as a whole being, which means focusing on your mind, body and spirit, to truly embody the essence of what it means to practice yoga. You are developed as a student of yoga first, and then that experience shapes you to become a teacher of yoga.

Yes! The physical practice of yoga is just one aspect of it and this program also covers pranayama (breathwork), meditation, relationship with one's self and the world, daily and seasonal routines for self-care, personal reflections and how to discover contentment in your life. 

Many graduates tell us they gain clarity on various aspects of their life as they move through this program. A yoga teacher training is by nature a transformational experience - it meets you where you're at and takes you where you need to go. If you’re feeling stuck or need change in any area of your life, this training is an opportunity to develop self-awareness, intuition and use the tools of yoga, the support of your peer group and guidance of the trainers to help you proceed through your challenge.

Absolutely! Yoga is not a religious practice but can be defined as a spiritual practice which unites the body, mind and spirit. It is an ancient philosophy and physical practice that does not interfere
with any religious beliefs and we welcome questions if contradictions or belief conflicts arise. Whatever your belief system is, this training will help you to deepen your experience of spirituality. Due to the fact that yoga originated from India, you will learn about its origins, history and practices from that context so as to keep the teachings of yoga as pure, intact and effective in its original form.
