Therapeutically Oriented Teacher Training

Are you craving a serious training with therapeutically oriented instruction? Do you know how to adapt the practice for individual students’ needs? Are you comfortable in a one-on-one setting? What about group classes with therapeutic essentials? Maybe you have specific conditions in your own body that have yet to be addressed in a regular classroom setting? This training is designed to empower individuals in the deep understanding and healing of our mind, body and spirit.

The program is taught by licensed healthcare professionals as well as seasoned yoga practitioners who specialize in therapeutic elements. Be prepared to be immersed in the wisdom of yoga as a physical, emotional and spiritual healing practice. You will deepen your understanding of how to work one-on-one with your students so they can compassionately modify poses, accommodating to the unique needs of their bodies.
