Yoga Therapy's Unique Approach

For those looking to provide a comprehensive, individualized approach to health, we offer the yoga therapy training Virginia professionals need to help their clients heal. Yoga therapy honors the unique goals and circumstances of each person, promoting holistic well-being on all levels. It combines ancient practices with modern medical knowledge. Unlike traditional medical treatments that focus on alleviating symptoms and treating conditions separately, yoga therapy is more holistic. It delves deeper into identifying and addressing the root causes of physical, mental, and emotional imbalances as a whole.

At the core of yoga therapy is the belief that the body, mind, and spirit are interconnected, and that imbalances in one area can affect another. Therefore, rather than treating symptoms in isolation, yoga therapists work to restore harmony and balance to the entire being.

In yoga therapy, there is an emphasis on empowering individuals to take an active role in their healing journey. Through personalized sessions, clients are guided to explore and understand their own bodies, emotions, and thought patterns. By cultivating greater self-awareness and practicing personalized yoga techniques with a professional, individuals gain the tools to manage stress, reduce pain, and improve overall well-being on a long-term basis.

Whether someone is recovering from an injury, managing a chronic condition, or simply seeking to enhance their quality of life, yoga therapy can be tailored to suit their specific goals and limitations. This versatility makes yoga therapy accessible to people of all ages, fitness levels, and abilities. Through practices such as meditation, breathwork, and physical movements, clients are guided to explore and integrate all aspects of themselves, leading to a deeper sense of connection to the self and others.

How Does Our Online Yoga Therapy Training Work?

Breathing Deeply offers dynamic and accessible online yoga therapy training for Virginians designed to accommodate the diverse needs and schedules of aspiring yoga therapists. Our program provides quality education from anywhere, eliminating the need for in-person attendance and allowing for seamless integration into your daily life. With varying payment plans, students can pay as they progress through the program, easing any financial constraints.

One of the key advantages of our training is its flexibility. You can learn at your own pace, making it ideal for individuals juggling busy schedules or other commitments. The Foundations training can be completed in just one year, providing a solid basis for your practice. From there, you have the option to continue with our Advanced training, which requires only an additional year. But if you need to take more time, you’re welcome to spend more than a year in either program—at no extra cost.

Our course structure includes both pre-recorded lessons available 24/7 and live interactive components. This blend ensures that students have regular access to instructors, can ask questions, and engage with peers, fostering a sense of community and collaboration even in a virtual setting. Moreover, our exclusive online community provides ongoing support and opportunities for interaction, enhancing the learning experience and facilitating personal and professional growth.

Our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Training

Our Foundations of Yoga Therapy Program can be completed at your own pace in as little as one year! It 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

What set the Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy Program apart, was that it was the only program I could find that allowed me the flexibility that I needed, given that I have a full-time job and travel a lot. Other programs were too far, too expensive, or I didn’t have a good rapport with the instructor/school over the phone or email.

Our Advanced Yoga Therapy Training and Certification

For a more in-depth program to complement your Foundations training, take the Advanced Yoga Therapy Program. The Advanced Program takes around 2 years to complete (1 of which is for the Foundations training). After successfully completing the program, you can become IAYT certified!

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

Where other programs focused on the clinical, Breathing Deeply accounts for a more balanced consideration of mental and physical health. It has given me fresh eyes, no longer only looking through the mental health lens I was originally trained with. I now also incorporate the lens of yoga in the work I do with clients. We all get to that point when we need an infusion of new learning and fresh inspiration. For me, I found it in Breathing Deeply.
