The Therapeutic Yoga training program gives Yoga teachers the skills to work intelligently with students who are living with chronic illness or injury, as well as pregnant and aging populations. Knowing how to work with these groups will deepen your confidence as a teacher, expand the range of private clients you can work with, and increase the number of classes you can offer. The training also offers a great education in the gentler styles of Yoga that can be incorporated into more active classes.
Therapeutic Yoga is a comprehensive system of Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga, breath awareness, and guided meditation specifically designed to enhance the body’s own capacity to heal. Using readily available props such as pillows and blankets to support the body gently, Therapeutic Yoga offer benefits that are accessible even to those recovering from injury or illness. Breath work, guided meditation, and hands-on healing modalities are also part of the system, working to balance the body and ease the mind.
Taught by Cheri Clampett, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500 and Arturo Peal, MA, TCM, LMP
