The ‘spiritual’ side of yoga therapy + protocols for working with trauma & weight loss

Welcome to episode 26 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and Meditation podcast.

Welcome to episode 26 of the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy & Meditation podcast!

This episode has been taken from a live Q&A session with Brandt and his yoga therapy students.

Many of our students come to yoga therapy from a more scientific and analytical background and therefore can struggle to wrap their heads around the more intangible aspects that we learn about in yoga therapy such as the koshas.

In this Q&A Brandt goes over what is considered the more esoteric side of yoga such as the pranic body and how this relates to yoga therapy as well as some book recommendations to help students understand the spiritual roots of yoga.

Brandt also gives advice on how to approach clients who have both trauma and obesity through the holistic and interconnected lens of yoga therapy.
