Yoga therapy is a holistic approach to healing and well-being that combines the principles and practices of yoga with modern medical and psychological knowledge. It is a personalized and integrative form of therapy that uses yoga-based techniques to address physical, mental, and emotional health issues. The primary goal of yoga therapy is to promote overall wellness and alleviate specific health problems.What is I AM Yoga Therapy™?
There are many different styles of Yoga Therapy, each of which have different areas of focus. Our approach to Yoga Therapy allows you to address the TOTAL person and address the entire range of causes from the invisible to the visible.
Our 800+ hour I AM Yoga Therapy™ Professional training is accredited with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), meets rigorous training standards and is designed to prepare you to successfully work in group, private and clinical settings.
An IAYT accredited program is respected by both the Yoga and Medical field. IAYT is actively working with the medical field to be able to refer clients to yoga therapy and even bill insurance for yoga therapy. This is not yet realized, but that is the goal. As these become realized, the standards will only become higher.Benefits for Yourself & Clients
