I am receiving “industry skills” that give me the tools and confidence to work with people in a deeper way. I have been in the program for about a year and a half, am nearing the completion of my Foundations coursework and am already seeing clients on a regular basis.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering advancing their studies into yoga therapy.
