Location: Honesdale, PA
Yoga Therapy Case Study: IBS
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.

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.
