Yoga Therapy's Unique Approach

When training to become a yoga therapist, you’ll encounter a unique blend of ancient wisdom and modern health practices. This combination empowers individuals to enhance their health and well-being. In addition to the basics of yoga movements, breathwork, and other techniques, our training delves into how to apply yoga to address specific health issues and improve overall wellness.

For those who find that traditional Western medicine falls short, yoga therapy offers a more tailored approach through the principles of yoga and Ayurveda. Our students learn to adapt these techniques to individual clients’ needs, making yoga therapy an invaluable tool for those seeking holistic healing and personal growth.

Yoga therapists undergo training to understand anatomy, physiology, mental health, and much more. This allows you to create a personalized approach for each client. At Breathing Deeply, we equip yoga therapy students with the ability to confidently treat a range of physical and mental health conditions, ranging from chronic pain to depression.

Our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Training

Master the fundamentals of yoga therapy in just one year with our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Program. If you require more flexibility, you have the freedom to progress at a pace that suits you.

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

Learning how to make the body, mind, spirit connection has been the most rewarding and valuable part of the program for me. No other health profession will come close to that. By connecting meditation, mindfulness, pranayama practices, and asanas, yoga therapy is the most complete holistic health practice I know.

This program has prepared me to be an effective and confident yoga therapist. Every client I have worked with since starting the program has told me how they have benefited from the practice. The program’s flexibility has exceeded my expectations, allowing me to take time off when I needed it and come back to it when I was able.

Our Advanced Yoga Therapy Training and Certification

For those aspiring to deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga therapy even further, our Advanced Yoga Therapy Program offers an additional year of training. Completing this course qualifies you for 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

Upon finishing the Foundations Program, students in the Advanced track engage in eight week-long modules. These virtual sessions are scheduled live, allowing for direct interaction with our lead teacher. Under our expert guidance, you will also complete a real-world practicum in your community where you can apply your skills.

Following graduation, you can take your yoga therapy knowledge into diverse professional environments, such as private practice, hospitals, mental health clinics, addiction treatment facilities, chiropractic offices, pain management centers, wellness centers, and educational institutions.

By the time the Foundations Program wrapped up, I knew I had to enroll in the Advanced Program—I didn’t want the learning to end!

I would tell anyone considering this program that it is very manageable and easy to pace as needed. The approach is incredibly effective, enlightening, and well thought out. Most importantly, when you finish the program you will have the confidence to practice as a Yoga Therapist.
