People often seek out professionals to fix, cure and offer prescriptions. Health seekers are supported in taking back their power, wisdom and understanding of their bodie's capacity to repair and heal.
This intuitive and sensitive approach meets, greets and respects the whole person with their individual perspectives and life experiences. THis is supported by the yoga therapists capacity to suggest practices that are evidence-based as well as individually created.
This way of being starts with you!
You need to complete Module 1 which introduces the subject and tutors on a foundational level for self study and application in life.
Modules 2-10 also require self-reflection and self development, supported with a mentor for guidance in this ongoing process running alongside the learning about the body's systems and subtle anatomy, philosophy, meditation and lots of session practice. There will also be time for researching your specialities, manifesting the business you want - from finding clients and working within your unique style, to marketing and promotion so you can speak to the clients you wish to attract.

Why train to be a yoga therapist with Yoga United Education?
Invest in your own growth and potential, your community and the future of this planet.
Yoga Therapy is fast becoming a recognised and scientifically proven mind/body modality in guiding people to improved physical, mental, and emotional health. With over-stretched health services, high rates of absenteeism at work due to illness and dis-ease, and pharmaceutical quick fixes with long-term side effects, yoga therapy works alongside other therapies to deliver complementary approaches to holistic healing and wellness.
With modules delivered by internationally acclaimed yoga therapists and educators, this special training brings together many successful approaches to yoga therapy in one training.
Definitions of yoga therapy we like at YU Ed
“The purpose of yoga therapy is to lead us to the True Self. Once there, our bliss filled nature as the essence of love is experienced. I don’t treat conditions. I am not a doctor nor do I have a physical therapy license. I treat the delusion of not knowing your Self and how to find your way past pain and suffering. I guide you, not treat you” Mukunda Stiles
“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teaching and practices of yoga” (IAYT definition of yoga therapy)
A note from Judy Hirsh Sampath, Director of studies “For this exciting training programme, I have gathered together many gems of therapeutic yoga practices and ways of being that I consider to be vital for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. With a team of passionate and engaging tutors, yoga therapists, and educators, our intention is to guide students, teachers, carers, and therapists to collect their own selection of resources to become a unique force in your field - gather many gems for your treasure chest.”
GUEST MODULES – we are honoured to introduce our special guest teachers delivering modules woven into Yoga United Education’s yoga therapy course.
