800 Hour Yoga Therapy Training Program
Coming in 2021!
A Yoga Therapist applies yoga techniques to specific health conditions. A Yoga Therapist, therefore, must be trained in both the techniques (asana, pranayama, chanting, philosophy or point of view and meditation) and the therapeutic applications of these techniques.
This point in time represents an exciting opportunity for yoga therapy! Though based in a long tradition of healing, yoga therapy is a relatively new occupation gaining awareness and recognition as an effective healing modality. This opening in healthcare is creating a new paradigm in wellness between the medical and yoga therapy fields. Career opportunities are emerging at a rapid pace due to public demand and greater attention to yoga therapy research.
Yoga therapy is easily integrated with other healing modalities, used in conjunction with western medical practices, and practiced as a stand-alone therapy. As a Yoga Therapist, you are trained to meet your client where they are and support their individual healing and wellness needs regardless of age, gender, condition, health history, physical and mental ability.
Yoga Therapists help clients to heal any number of physical conditions such as back pain, shoulder injury, sciatica, pelvic floor dysfunction, and plantar fasciitis. They also have therapeutic practices to address anxiety disorders, PTSD, insomnia, depression, autoimmune diseases, addiction, obesity, cancer support, and more.
