Full Description

WHAT WE SHARE

The Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training program offers students in‐depth skills to teach Yoga as a vehicle for total wellness and utilizes the Integrative Yoga Therapy curriculum from the lineage of Joseph and Lillian Le Page, both visionary leaders in the field of Yoga therapy. This training provides a solid foundation in Hatha Yoga and includes 200 hours of instruction and practice in Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Practical Anatomy/Physiology, Ayurveda, Therapeutic Alignment Principles, Hands-on and Verbal Adjustments, and the Art of Teaching. You will learn both classical yoga poses and modifications so that you can instruct yoga based wellness classes to the general population as well as instruct yoga to those with specific therapeutic needs in a wide variety of complementary settings including hospitals, businesses, and community health care settings. Many graduates of the IYT program also develop specialty programs, such as Yoga for: healthy backs, depression, seniors, stress management, diabetes and other health conditions. Upon completion our graduates are eligible to apply for 200 hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) status by contacting for registration. Our program meets the Yoga Alliance standards as follows:

Supportive Kula

As we come together for this deep immersion into the theory and practice of yoga, teachers and students are encouraged to create a community that embraces the Yamas and Ni-Yamas as put forward by Patanjali with intention to create an association of respect, joy, celebration and support. We strive to celebrate our own and each other’s strengths and skills and recognize our own and each other’s challenges as opportunities for transformation. We acknowledge that each of us is on a remarkable journey that is both unique and woven in commonalities and therefore, we strive to cultivate attitudes and actions that support our own and each other’s positive growth and development.
