with Kamini Desai, Ph.D.

I AM Yoga Therapy™ I (40 hours)

Touch-free Techniques of Yoga Therapy I:
“Immediately relevant, useful and applicable.”
“Bridges the gap between Yoga and Psychology.”
“Science of Yoga and Energy.”

This profound and innovative course takes Yoga Therapy to a deeper level. Learn specific and immediately useful tools to release trapped psychosomatic patterns and free the body’s innate healing potential. Presented in an applicable and relatable way, teachings on esoteric understanding of energy are combined with practical tools and practices. Body-based facilitation & coaching techniques can be applied with or without yoga poses in one-on-one private sessions or applied to any style of yoga, life coaching, therapy or bodywork you offer. Besides powerful facilitation techniques, you will learn how to guide poses to release and reprogram unhelpful physical, mental and emotional patterns. Support yourself and others to reduce symptoms and improve function not only from the outside in, but from the inside out!

This program is often taught online and works extremely well in this format with plenty of individual coaching and partner practice in virtual breakout rooms. Yoga Therapy I can stand on its own or you may use your hours to go on to Yoga Therapy II where you will learn hands-on techniques of Yoga Therapy. Includes detailed digital manual and reference videos.

You will learn:

• Fascinating insights & Yogic theory of energy, self-actualization & healing
