Foundations Program Graduate
Yoga Therapist, Yoga Teacher
Location: Barnhart, MI
As a Yoga Teacher, I’ve seen people with pain, discomfort, and disease for a long time. My inspiration to enroll in the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program came while I was going through my 200-hour teacher training. A Yoga Therapist came to teach for a weekend and her techniques were so helpful. I knew then, that I needed to learn more about how I too, could help others with health and body issues.
The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program has not only shown me how to help others, but I have also learned how to look after my own body. I have gone to a chiropractor often in my life for lower back and neck issues and since joining this school, I no longer need to. This program has shown me how to move in a way that is favorable to my body, mitigating the pain I once had.
Now I use yoga therapy whenever I can. There is a group of physicians in St. Louis who help people heal without surgeries and traditional intervention. Now that I have completed this program, I aspire to work with them, as well as in a traditional hospital setting to help cancer patients relieve pain and suffering.
One client case I would like to share is of a client who suffered from scoliosis. Since she started implementing yoga therapy techniques with me, she feels so much better and maintains that no intervention previously tried has been as effective.
Since I started this program, I have been able to give my clients the confidence and ability to help and heal themselves. That’s really been the most valuable part of this education for me.
To anyone considering enrolling in the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program, know that is it well worth the time, effort and money. It will equip you to help your clients but it will also improve and enrich your daily yoga teaching.

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 […]
