My yoga journey

Yoga Therapy Training

on June 12, 2019

At the end of last year I decided that I wanted to slightly change my yoga teaching. I wanted to work less with those who are fit and flexible and the typical yoga student and more with those who have injuries and physical or mental limitations.

As a result of this I decided to look at yoga therapy teacher training. Yoga Therapy is done on a one to one basis and is tailored to the individual and how they are feeling that day. It’s a hugely complex practice to teach as you need to be aware of so many potential issues. As a result the minimum amount of training for this is 500 hours, on top of a 200 hour qualification.

After doing some research I decided to look for a IYTA certified programme as this is more internationally recognised. As a result I’m doing an 800 hour qualification with The Yoga Therapy Institute in the Netherlands. It’s a great course and I’ll cover more of it in my next post.
