Yoga Therapy combines the traditional wisdom and mental health benefits of yoga with a modern understanding of anatomy, physiology, neurology, and trauma theory to create what has been accurately coined a ‘Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual’ approach to healing and wellbeing.
It offers an approach which takes into account the entirety of the human condition and offers holistic practices which align intention with action and teach us to harness the incredible healing power which exists in us all.
The body is a powerful tool for creating connection and integration. As we learn to adapt a physical alignment that better serves the health of our breath and body, the pathways which bring our mind and spirit into alignment become more accessible and apparent.
To become a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) requires a different educational journey than a regular yoga teacher training course (RYT200) and requires certification through the International Association of Yoga Therapy. Yoga Therapists learn all of the traditional elements of yoga and teaching, but also have the benefit of anatomical understanding, trauma informed training, and an ability to work safely and productively with a wide range of sensitive health conditions and injuries. Yoga Therapy is a beautiful balance between ancient wisdom and modern science, culminating in a healing practice that is empowering people across the globe to find their path to health and vitality!
