Yoga Therapy's Unique Approach

Yoga therapy is a specialized approach that applies the principles and practices of yoga therapeutically. It also takes into account modern medicine and knowledge. The goal is to promote health, healing, and well-being on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.

Unlike yoga teachers, yoga therapists work with clients one on one, allowing us to delve deeper into the therapeutic potential of yoga. We utilize different yoga techniques such as asanas, pranayama, yoga nidra, and meditation to address specific health concerns and support individuals in achieving their wellness goals.

Yoga therapy sessions are tailored to the unique needs, abilities, and goals of each client. An Ayurvedic framework enables us to consider their unique dosha imbalances and work to correct them. We also conduct thorough assessments to understand the client’s physical condition, medical history, lifestyle factors, and psychological well-being. This allows us to develop personalized practices that are safe, effective, and appropriate for the individual.

A key aspect of yoga therapy is its integrative approach to health and healing. Rather than focusing solely on physical symptoms or psychological issues, yoga therapy recognizes the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, addressing the individual as a whole. Yoga therapy can also be easily integrated with other healthcare modalities when needed to achieve a holistic approach.

By showing our clients how to practice yoga techniques at home, we empower individuals to take an active role in their own health and healing.

Our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Training

Discover the fundamental principles of yoga therapy through our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Program, which can be completed in just one year. Should you require additional time, you have the freedom to progress through the coursework at your preferred speed.

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

The most valuable parts of this program for me have been the community and the model Brandt teaches. It’s a method and process that we learn to apply together. It feels more like growing into skills than memorizing specifics for this or that condition. And we grow as a group together, working it all out as we go. I’ve never been in a school like this, and now I can’t see any other way to be a yoga therapist.

You can seamlessly transition into our Advanced Yoga Therapy Program once you finish the Foundations Program, which is actually required training for the Advanced Program.

The Advanced Program is made up of three parts:

Breathing Deeply’s IAYT certification also played a critical part in swaying my decision.
