I shifted into teaching yoga classes after a career in physio and occupational therapy. Yoga helped me so much personally that I wanted to share it with others. I remember seeing an ad for Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and couldn’t shake the draw to use yoga in the same one-on-one manner as my previous work. It kept calling me, so I applied!
Since starting the program, my knowledge of therapeutic yoga has dramatically increased. The Doshic and Koshic teachings have helped me and I’m now able to use what I’ve learned to help others. Today, I feel that I am more aligned to my purpose/dharma which feels so natural and peaceful.
Having come from a background of “therapy“ I was excited to deepen my knowledge around the yogic piece and this program absolutely delivered. The Doshic and Koshic teachings have been the most impactful to me, by far! I have witnessed a range of differences among my clients, from small ah-ha moments to a more profound decrease in suffering.
I am very proud of the outcome of the two case studies I worked with while in the Foundations Program. Both individuals experienced profound decreases in their physical and emotional suffering. I am so happy for them.
To anyone considering the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program, they should know that it is a very accessible course. It will enrich your understanding of yoga and how to help those looking for holistic and therapeutic healing.
