Yoga Therapy's Unique Approach

Yoga therapy stands at the unique intersection of ancient wisdom and contemporary science. This practice, emerging from the time-honored traditions of yoga and enriched by the insights of modern medicine, aims to empower individuals in their quest for health and wellness. It encourages people to play an active role in their own health journey.

In essence, yoga therapy is a personalized and evolving health discipline that applies yoga techniques and practices to help individuals achieve holistic wellness. Yoga therapy encompasses a comprehensive approach to well-being, addressing not only physical health but the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of health as well.

A yoga therapist is a skilled professional who specializes in tailoring yoga practices to address individual health concerns. This requires a deep understanding of both the vast array of yoga techniques—such as asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath control), chanting, philosophical teachings, and meditation—and their specific therapeutic applications. With training in anatomy, different health conditions, and how to use yoga as a tool for healing, a yoga therapist is equipped to guide clients on their journey to better health and improved quality of life.

The Foundations Program consists of:

Using the entire Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy model approach of working through the doshas and koshas for individual people, I have noticed a much faster healing process in both mind and body. There have been so many valuable pieces of this program and learning to teach yoga nidra and the powerful effects it has on brain wave states to change pain for patients has been incredible! THANK YOU to Brandt for helping me help my patients even more! I am a believer.

For those seeking an even deeper understanding of yoga therapy, you can spend an additional year training with us in our Advanced Yoga Therapy Program. Successful completion of this course makes you eligible for the highest level of yoga therapy certification available, C-IAYT.

The Advanced Program is made up of three parts:

After each week-long retreat, I feel like I’ve made a huge leap in my learning and personal growth. The Q&As are like a mini-retreat and a chance to connect with Brandt, my fellow students, and the yoga therapy material.
