SOYA TTP Program in Fort McMurray taking a Pause

Welcome to the Ananda Center for Balance – Fort McMurray, Alberta.

Firstly, I would like to thank you for expressing interest in the Fort McMurray SOYA Yoga Teacher Training Program. We have just finished a successful 2015 year and have some lovely new teachers to share with the community. 
Secondly, this note is to share with you all that Kapila Chugh and I have decided to step down and take a break from running the SOYA program here in Fort McMurray. We have had a wonderful 5 years teaching for SOYA and we both feel that it is a natural time of transition for us each to move forward with other opportunities and areas of interest.
We realize that this news may come as a surprise and though we regret that the SOYA program won’t be operating in Fort McMurray next year, we can offer you other options in various other locations. For a full list of all the SOYA Yoga teacher training programs, please see:
Upcoming 200hr Immersions: 
Mar 2016 – Sorrento, BC 
May 2016 – Merritt, BC
July, 2016 – Calgary, AB
Oct 2016 – Penticton, BC
Nov 2016, Mexico
*Register early for the best rates. I recommend that you consider the Calgary 200hr Immersion as one of your most economical option for taking your training. This training is non-residential with students billeted in local area homes at $25/day. 
Please feel free to contact Marion (Mugs) McConnell ( if you have any questions about SOYA or the SOYA Yoga teacher training programs. 
Otherwise, for all non-SOYA related questions, you are welcome to connect with me at anytime. You can reach me more easily through my other email: office (at) heatherthomas (dot) ca; or the website: 
Thank you for your understanding with this program change for Fort McMurray and our need to respect the natural ebb and flow of life and work. 
Love and Light, 
Heather & Kapila
