Join us for Two 4-Day Weekends – This module concentrates on your work as a teacher, with both classes and individual clients.

Yogic treatments will include asana, breath, meditation and sound practices. On completing this module students will be competent to advise on specific common ailments that are presented by their clients in one-on-one yoga therapy sessions, or by their students in class.
