Foundations Program Graduate
Since I enrolled in the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program, my knowledge and practice of yoga have expanded not only for myself but in how I work with clients. I feel more confident and know I have a place to turn for ongoing support.
When I applied, I was working on my hours toward becoming a licensed counselor and wanted to integrate my yoga teaching. With the program online, it allowed me to do this at my own pace (Thank you, Breathing Deeply!).
On a personal level, the Breathing Deeply teachings & philosophy has helped me find a consistent practice and living yoga “off my mat”. In general, more personal awareness and growth and the ability to make connections between the emotional and physical body.
As for the program, the virtual retreats and case studies were so important. Some of the required work and my final test threw me for a loop, but I was pleased to be able to talk this through with my TA and Brandt, resulting in accommodations that greatly helped my learning! For anyone considering this training, know that what you put into the program is what you will take away from it. And, trust the process!
Now, I am a mental health therapist who also offers somatic practices, trauma-informed yoga, yoga therapy, and chair yoga for adults with special needs. My case study with adults with disabilities have allowed them to grow emotionally and feel more confident in their physical bodies from our yoga therapy work together!
