What to expect

Discover how modern science supports the ancient wisdom of yoga. We explore the relationship between the holistic energy system and modern research in the autonomic nervous system, vagus nerve, and endocrine system. Learn how to treat a range of health issues: physical issues such as muscular pain, headaches and backaches; digestive issues such as indigestion, reflux, overweight, hyperthyroid, and diabetes. Also, cardiovascular issues such as hypertension and high blood pressure; mental issues such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, hypochondria, and ADHD; plus many other health conditions. At the core of our practice are yoga asana (sun salutation, hatha yoga, and yin yoga) and the therapeutic benefits of practice for a host of different health issues. Each day begins with a pranayama class where we learn about the yogic science of breath and its therapeutic uses. Evenings are dedicated to personal study. On Sundays (or another day, weather permitting) there is an option for an excursion, a video lecture, dynamic meditation or simply relaxing with fellow students. Yoga therapy TTC is taught by Yogi Living Ashram resident teacher Winnie Winnetu and an Indian Yogi with 15 years experience of in hatha yoga and yoga therapy. Both have experienced the tremendous benefits yoga practice has on daily life quality and health. We warmly welcome you to join us.

Quotation Marks

Yoga therapy is where the ancient yoga teachings meet modern science

Yoga Therapy is widely recognized and receiving increasing attention in healthcare institutions. One of the key drivers for this growth is scientific research. As more and more studies have demonstrated that Yoga Therapy has measurable benefits, the demand for Yoga Therapists is skyrocketing.

Yoga therapy requires detailed knowledge of how to select asanas, pranayamas, and meditations while avoiding contra-indications for specific ailments. Yoga therapists are trained to assess clients through listening, questioning, observing, and the use of appropriate touch.

If you are seeking to establish yourself in yoga or to develop your yoga teaching, yoga therapy could be the next step.

Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve as a means to facilitate healing in the person at all levels.

The therapist seeks to empower clients to take a more active role in their personal care. It is less about teaching yogic techniques and more about helping clients to overcome challenges and gain independence. Consequently, the work of a yoga therapist has a different focus, uses a different skill set, and needs a different type of training.

Clients seeking a yoga therapist are usually not coming to learn yoga, but to get help with a health condition troubling them. In most cases, instruction focuses on their condition and yoga techniques that help them feel better or improve function, rather than a specific yoga practice.

According to yoga, disease usually starts in the mind and if left unchecked, manifests as imbalance in the emotional and physical body. Good health is not merely the absence of sickness, but is indicated by: strong digestion, a strong immune system, radiant skin, deep restful sleep with steady energy levels throughout the day, together with an even temperament and feeling joyful.

Yoga therapy aligns the health needs of the client with yoga practices supported by medical science. For example, there are specific yoga positions and postures for strengthening and supporting the back and alleviating lower back pain, even symptoms of a herniated disc. Likewise, with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), there are gentle, specialized ways of regulating the nervous system and fostering the return of an awareness of the body.

Becoming a yoga therapist is an enriching personal journey as well as a professional undertaking. As a yoga therapist you possess the competence needed to help clients to improve the state of their health and enjoy a fulfilling life.

Impressions of Yogi Living Ashram

Moonlight over green meadows,
Summerlight over fields of corn,
Scent of flowers from garden meads,
And in the forest singing of birds
