Our 200-Hour Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher Training & Empowerment Program is truly a one-of-a-kind, inspiring, thorough & effective program designed to bring empowerment to your body, clarity to your mind and expansion to your heart. This compelling and unique experience is led by master teachers, Kilkenny Tremblay (E-RYT 500) who has over 37 years of experience as a practitioner and over a decade leading teacher trainings, and Andrea Barberio (E-RYT 500) who has a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and many years of practicing and teaching. It will meet you where you are, help you redefine where you want to be, and offer you active tools and experiences to achieve your goals as you deepen your relationship and knowledge with the art and science of yoga, mindfulness and their practices.


The 200-hour program is suitable for individuals wanting to become certified yoga teachers who will learn the key skills needed to lead outstanding yoga classes; for individuals who NEVER want to teach yoga but want to become deeply established in the knowledge and practices of yoga and mindfulness; for teachers who have already completed a teacher training program but are looking to develop & expand both their authentic teaching voice and their arsenal of teaching tools; or for individuals seeking to simply “share” yoga with loved ones. It is also appropriate for professionals such as doctors, lawyers, teachers of all kinds, executives, and leaders, who love yoga and want to refine their public speaking and overall confidence.

“Choosing to complete my 200hr RYT training at Sanctuary Yoga and Mindfulness was the best decision I could have made for myself. I feel competent and excited to start teaching yoga around the city as this life changing program comes to an end. The training focused a great deal on verbal and physical cueing so I know that I will be an effective teacher. Sanctuary’s program is hosted by Kilkenny and Andrea, two amazing and sought after instructors in the Philadelphia area. Both have different teaching styles so it was great to learn from their individual qualities, creating a well-rounded program with different teaching styles to observe.  What makes Sanctuary unique is their meditation classes which were a part of our training as well. Whether you want to teach or attend the program for personal development, you will walk away with a strong home practice of asana and meditation.”

The 200hr Yoga teacher training at Sanctuary Yoga was an unforgettable experience. The program is rich in the education of Yoga, it's history and how to apply the practice on and off of the mat. I feel that my passion for Yoga has been strengthened even more and am empowered to share my love for Yoga through teaching. It has been an honor to have had the chance to study under teachers who are so full of knowledge, experience, and devotion to their students and sharing Yoga with others. I finished this program with confidence that I can lead quality yoga classes. The program enables you to build a community with your classmates. This gave me not only the skills I need to teach but also giving me a second family.

"If you're looking for highly qualified, skilled, experienced teachers who will care about you and your learning path, along with a great curriculum and a warm welcoming atmosphere then this is the school for you. You will not be disappointed. One of the best experiences of my life!" - Tina, 2017 Teacher Training Graduate


"My experience at Sanctuary Yoga and Mindfulness Shala was exceptional. The program was comprehensive, detailed and rigorous, but presented in an extremely supportive way. Kilkenny Tremblay and Andrea Barberio are extraordinary teachers who connected personally with each student. Their individual areas of expertise and interest complemented each other, creating a very well rounded, balanced program. We were encouraged to deepen our relationship with our Self through study of yoga texts and meditation, chanting and Mantra. We learned to recognize and acknowledge our connections with the Universe, seasons, cultures, etc. Applied anatomy, asana architecture and practice, adjustments and "seeing" the student were emphasized. We were encouraged to find our unique voice, take the Seat of the Teacher, and teach from our heart. All in all, an excellent experience."
