Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training
Healing comes from within and requires subtle movements and exercises to open and challenge the body to obtain strength, flexibility, and mobility.
The Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training offers teachers and health practitioners the skills to integrate yoga and healing modalities into their services. This knowledge will help you guide individuals to recover from injuries or illnesses as well as guide those who are pregnant or aging populations. These techniques help bring the various systems within the body into balance, reduce pain, release long-held tensions and help produce a state of mind conducive to the healing process.
Knowing how to work with these groups will deepen your confidence as a teacher, expand the range of private clients you can work with, and increase the types of classes you can offer. The techniques and information taught include:
Use of physical assessments to determine the needs and goals of an individual, observation of movement, posture, breath, and verbal and non-verbal communication.
These techniques provide physical benefits such as strength and vitality in muscles, bones, connective tissue, and organs. It may also affect the psycho-spiritual benefits by decreasing anxiety, improving concentration, or developing a sense of purpose and connection.
