This growth is part of a broader trend in the Western world, where yoga has become increasingly popular for its physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits.

Yoga Therapy's Unique Approach

Derived from the timeless traditions of yoga and enriched with contemporary understanding, yoga therapy’s objective is to empower people to actively participate in their own health and well-being. Utilizing methodologies rooted in both yoga and Ayurveda, along with insights from Western medical research, a yoga therapist assists clients in improving their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

A yoga therapist employs specific yoga practices tailored to individual health issues. To pursue this path, you’ll need to look for yoga therapy training in Massachusetts that covers yoga techniques (such as poses or asanas, pranayama, chanting, philosophy, point of view, and meditation) as well as how to apply those techniques therapeutically.

Our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Training

In just one year, students can finish our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Program — or take more time as needed.

The Foundations Program consists of:

  • 50 pre-recorded lectures
  • Coursework
  • Assignments and online social network
  • Live Q&As with head teacher and Breathing Deeply creator, Brandt Passalacqua
  • 3 virtual/online learning retreat modules
  • Hands-on experience with other students

I chose Breathing Deeply because of the student-friendly structure of the program as well as the down-to-earth and relatable way that Brandt teaches.

The most valuable part of the program is having direct access to Brandt through Q&As and retreats. Reviewing and receiving advice for case studies is the most useful and helps build confidence while working with clients and building a yoga therapy practice.

Our Advanced Yoga Therapy Course and Certification

To complete our Advanced Yoga Therapy Program, students spend a year working through the Foundations Program and a second year of advanced training. However, if you’d like more time, you’re welcome to work at your own pace. At the end of this training, you can earn the highest level of yoga therapy certification, C-IAYT.

The Advanced Program is made up of three parts:

  • The Foundations of Yoga Therapy Program
  • 8 week-long live virtual learning modules
  • Mentored practicum in the community

The 8 retreat modules are offered remotely on a live schedule, giving you the convenience of an online format along with the community and engagement of learning with Brandt and your peers. After finishing the program, you are eligible to take a final exam to gain IAYT certification.

Our Advanced graduates work in a variety of fields, including healthcare, mental health, social work, addiction, pain management, and more.

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.

To any motivated yoga therapy student considering this program, know that the flexible, self-paced nature of this program and the tremendous support available at every step of the way make it entirely achievable.
