How is Yoga Therapy different from Yoga?
Level of Training
Yoga Therapists have five times the amount of education compared to yoga teachers, with an education comparable to a Master’s level. They are trained to work with clients with specific or persistent health conditions, as part of an integrative team.
Whether in a one-on-one setting or small patient groups, yoga therapists conduct intake and assessment, identifying areas of imbalance, as well as opportunities for growth.
From the assessment, the yoga therapist develops a safe and effective practice that is uniquely customized to meet the needs of the individual or appropriate for a group setting in which the group shares a similar problem or symptoms.
“This training is so much more than just finding a new career, AlcheMe Yoga Therapy training gave me the tools to find my purpose in life. Living in alignment with my purpose and having the confidence to work one-on-one in a clinical setting or privately with individual clients has given me the freedom live my dreams instead of wish for them. As a yoga teacher for many years, I can now break free from fitness yoga, truly meet each individual where they are, and guide them toward the life of their dreams.”
