A busy mother of two daughters and a full-time nurse practitioner, I was feeling the challenges of attaining a good rhythm of self-care.  When a friend asked for help with a shoulder injury, I felt the deficit, as a seasoned health care provider and a yoga teacher trained in three disciplines, to help both my friend and myself.  That’s when I decided to look into Yoga Therapy training.

Breathing Deeply stood out for the flexibility of the online component which meant I would be able to get started immediately and affordably.  I also appreciated having easy access to some of Brandt’s video blog posts as it gave me further insight into his teaching style which I found to be clear, informative, solid and authentic.  Breathing Deeply’s IAYT certification also played a critical part in swaying my decision.

Since joining the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy program, I have to say that learning the strategies and gaining the tools required to help myself stay balanced – including getting on a regular schedule, breathing practices and finding the yoga asana that’s best for me, was worth the cost of the training. But there have been other benefits. I feel more confident in helping and empowering others while remembering that healing happens from the innate wisdom within them, with me as a guide.

I am now living at the Himalayan Institute, where I work as a Holistic Nurse Practitioner and Yoga Therapist, helping others build resiliency and overcome the physical, mental and emotional effects of chronic stress.

To anyone considering the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy program, I offer the following;

  1. Expect to learn in layers and trust that the material will solidify and become clear as you go through the course and weekend retreats.
  2. Trust that Brandt and Anna hold a very sacred and serious container for learning and know that they are available to discuss any concerns you have.
  3. Plan on learning about yourself in ways you didn’t expect and know that this will allow you to become a more authentic yoga therapist.
  4. Keep breathing deeply. It actually helps.
