Our approach to yoga therapy training certification program provides therapeutic benefits to those who need more than general health and fitness. It blends Ayurveda principles with yoga to create an adaptive form of therapy emphasizing restoration, stress, pain relief, and individual modification. This yoga therapy certification training program can be used to register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 or 500 hour level.It best used as adjunct therapy for those with chronic health conditions, including low back pain, mental health disorders, cancers, metabolic conditions, cardiovascular problems and muscular-skeletal challenges.
This program is eclectic drawing from several yoga therapy lineages including: 1) Trantric Yoga from Swami Satyananda of the Bihar School of Yoga in Munger, 2) Yogi Bhajan’s Kundalini yoga 3) Ayurveda from Vasant Lad/David Frawley and 4) restorative yoga/Iyengar yoga adaptations from Judith Lasater.
The Ayurvedic medical yoga as therapy teacher certification training program is appropriate for those who have completed 200 hours of yoga training or current licensed health and medical providers not limited to nurses, bodyworkers, athletic trainers, chiropractors, psychologists and doctors of natural health. This is a soft pre-requisite. We have accepted students into the program with 200 hours of teacher training on a case by case basis.
Our Yoga therapy training certification program emphasizes Ayurveda and nutrition coaching, chair yoga, restorative yoga, Yoga Nidra and Bhutta Shuddi meditation. It prepares yoga therapy teachers to provide yoga therapy on an individual basis (emphasizing customization and assessment) and in group therapy formats. The training in adaptive yoga has two levels. Each level is 200 hours:
Level I Yoga as Therapy Training Certification: This level establishes a firm foundation in Ayurveda and assessment. Very much like when you go to a new doctor, the doctor does a complete workup on you as new patient, getting your medical history, taking resting measures, and physical observations through the SOAP procedure. In this level you learn a similar assessment process combining both eastern and western approaches. You learn the pathology, prognosis and yoga therapy applications for cardiovascular diseases and depression. Students receive a certificate of completion in yoga therapy.
