"I have been teaching Yoga for almost two decades and leading Yoga Teacher Trainings for 12 years. When I met with Brandt about the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy (BDYT) program I was very impressed with his extensive knowledge base, his experience, and his ease at connecting with someone he never met before. (That may seem unimportant, but in my years of experience with Yoga Teacher Trainers, not everyone has this much-needed personality trait.)

Over the years I researched and contemplated other programs, but none of them resonated - until I met Brandt.

One of the aspects of the program that I think is really important is the variety of ways to learn: the online component, the face-to-face weekends, the monthly community/local sessions, and Brandt’s availability for multiple weekly phone conferences.

There are many ways to absorb the content, which is important because it is helpful to review the material more than once and if there is confusion, or we have questions as we go through the self-paced online material, we can take part of the weekly call to ask Brandt or we can discuss it at our monthly meeting.

Brandt’s years of experience with yoga therapy clients is such an amazing benefit and exactly what I was looking for in a Yoga Therapy program because the real-life examples really connect us to the content/material in a way that makes a difference.

Brandt’s years of vast experience, his education in various holistic modalities, his availability, and let’s not forget his sense of humor - makes the BDYT program the perfect choice for the Yoga Community."

Receive Mentoring

My teacher was an incredible guide and his assistance enabled me to progress on the path of yoga far beyond what I could hope for on my own. Mentoring is deeply important in the lineage that I received, and I continue and honor this lineage for students becoming Yoga Therapists through this course and beyond.


Serve at a higher level

You’ll have the skills you need to help relieve suffering and increase healing in yourself, and others.

Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy training is a two-track yoga therapy program designed to give you the flexibility to complete the course at a pace that suits your already busy practice schedule.

It incorporates online lectures, weekly live Q&A sessions, and residential retreats held in Claverack, New York (outside of Hudson). The Yoga Therapy Certification can be completed in 1 year or continue and complete the 871-hour program in just over 2 years or longer as required. It’s up to you.

You will gain the information and skills to build on your current knowledge of holistic healing options by working one-on-one with people for a wide range of conditions while you learn anatomy, philosophy, theory, and how to apply this information and tools in a therapeutic setting.
