Yoga Therapy Program
Over the course of this 800-hour professional yoga therapy program, the student becomes versed in the therapeutic application of the Five Points of Yoga and the Four Paths of Yoga.
The goal of the Sivananda Yoga Health Educator is to empower participants in their own Self-healing through the practice of asana, pranayama, conscious relaxation techniques, vegetarian diet, positive thinking tools, and meditation practices.
Practical tools, foundation concepts and philosophical knowledge are gained to create the framework for more advanced study as one progresses through the program. Emphasis is placed on understanding the subtler aspects of the causes of disease and stress in the individual.

Who's it for
We have an intrinsic capacity to heal and remember we are divinely created as part of the whole universe. How our health, prosperity, and abundance begins to falter is unique to each person. This “wake up call” is both and obstacle and opportunity for personal growth and spiritual awakening.
Pain is an acronym that stands for Pay, Attention, Inside, Now. A physical, emotional, or spiritual imbalance can manifest as stress, anxiety, depression, lack of direction or connection. As a Yoga Health Educator, I offer suggestions to bring balance and harmony back to a person’s body and life.
Yoga as a physical practice has been widely accepted for it’s benefits. However, yoga reaches far beyond the mat. As a Yoga Health Educator I draw from western medicine knowledge and eastern healing wisdom to improve my client’s lives.
Much like stars form constellations in the heavens, yoga health consultations draw from several lines of ancient wisdom. This includes the theory of karma and disease, counseling techniques based in the Vedic sciences, Ayurveda psychology, Five Points of Yoga and the Four Paths of Yoga, and modern medicine.
