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. 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 gently support the body, the benefits of Therapeutic Yoga 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.
This 40-hour foundational course taught by Cheri Clampett (therapeuticyogatraining.com) and Arturo Peal (bodystudies.com) covers the basics of Therapeutic Yoga. In addition to the theory and practice of restorative yoga postures and gentle yoga, participants will learn:
Physiology of stress and relaxation
