Finding Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy was a dream come true for me. I had wanted to become a yoga therapist for several years but was unable to attend the in-person opportunities that were available. After many years of practice and teaching beginner yoga (many students experiencing chronic lifestyle diseases and other limitations), my passion became clear. My interests and strengths were with helping people realize and come to their full potentials.
If you are a busy professional who strives to be a yoga therapist then this is the program for you. It is thorough and credible while building in flexibility so that any dedicated student can achieve their goals. Breathing Deeply offered a flexible and extensive online program with a foundational track and an advanced track.
If you are able to immerse in the in-person experience, there is an opportunity to attend required retreats in a beautiful, tranquil environment. If, however, you are unable to travel, there is an option for online retreat experiences. I completed the online retreats and they were amazing.
Brandt is a fabulous teacher in all respects. He is thorough and available in multiple ways. He is receptive and efficient in responding. His expectations are clear and the material in the courses is presented simply and logically. He is accommodating to any student needs and understands and responds to the differences in learning styles. If there is a challenge along the way for a student, he compassionately works with the student to find solutions. His wife and partner Anna is amazing. She is efficient and always on task. Anna’s compassionate heart and kind soul shines through in every communication.
Breathing Deeply is a solid and accessible opportunity for learning and personal development. Instructors are highly skilled and attentive to each student. Many times throughout my studies, I felt like the #1 or only student in the program. I highly recommend Breathing Deeply programs for any aspiring students.

Yoga therapy is a relatively new method of healing born out of an ancient tradition. Yoga has been around for over 1,000 years. The idea of using yoga in a therapeutic context has been credited to Tirumalai Krishnamacharya who died in 1981 at the age of 100. We can think of yoga therapy the same […]
