Yoga therapy is the application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being. Its aim is to eliminate, reduce, and/or manage symptoms that cause suffering; improving function; helping to prevent the occurrence or re-occurrence of underlying causes of illness;and moving toward improved health and well-being.
The core principle of our 800 hour program, module 1-5 is understanding, listening to and freeing energy as a healing force within each individual. Each of our trainings represent a different facet of this core principle, and are designed to introduce the yoga therapist to a new yoga therapeutic skill set (or deepen an existing skill set) which they can then practically apply to their yoga therapy practicums and clients in both yoga therapy classes or individual sessions. Each module is interwoven with the others and is intended to eventually create an entire body of knowledge and yoga therapeutic skills which allow the yoga therapy student to have a variety of channels to most appropriately address the individual needs of the client. Modules 6-9 are designed to go deeper into the basics outlined in the previous 5 modules and go deeper into specific applications for yoga therapists. The practical applications for use in yoga therapy session follows this general formula: Teaching/instruction/modeling of the technique or yoga therapeutic skill, practicing in-class with faculty oversight and feedback, classroom exchanges of sessions, practicum overview and documention. Students are asked to fill out documentation in the practicum that follows session documentation protocols as outlined.
