“When I applied to the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy program, I was at a crossroads. Do I continue to teach yoga or is it time to try something else? I had been giving private lessons for many years, which were evolving into more therapeutic lessons rather than teaching yoga poses. I really enjoyed the work and didn’t want to give up helping people who needed it. One evening, I came across a live chat with Brandt about the benefits of yoga therapy and becoming a Yoga Therapist. At that moment, I knew this was my next step, I signed up immediately and never looked back!
The convenience of doing the Foundations Program online was very enticing. I liked the idea of learning at my own pace and having weekly Q & A’s with Brandt to help with questions and homework. Having Brandt and Anna as directors, who are so personable and knowledgeable, made my decision to choose this program over other yoga therapy programs far easier.
At the time, the only thing that might have discouraged me from committing was the thought of taking time away from my studio and assuming the financial burden. However, the pull was so strong, I made it happen so I could continue to do this important work.
I have seen such great results as I continue to see clients. This, in and of itself, is so rewarding. To be a part of someone’s change, helping with their pain and suffering is such an honor. One client of mine has degenerative disc disease and trouble sleeping. After working with her for about 6 months, she is happy to report that she no longer wakes up in pain and that using breathing techniques she has learned in our work together, helps her fall back to sleep. I am pleased to be of service.
I would highly recommend the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program not only for the reasons that it has impacted me, but for the incredible variety of topics and knowledge offered to students no matter what conditions or populations they are seeking to work with.”
