Therapeutic Yoga Training Level I
October 3–8, 2017
Taught by Cheri Clampett, E-RYT 500 and Arturo Peal
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.
In addition to Yoga teachers, our graduates include nurses, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and other health-care professionals. They are able to integrate the techniques taught in the training into patient care. Many of our graduates have successfully taken Therapeutic Yoga into hospitals, hospices, home-care situations, and many other areas of healthcare.
This 40-hour foundational course covers the basics of Therapeutic Yoga. In addition to the theory and practice of Restorative Yoga postures and Gentle Yoga, participants will learn:
