Yoga Therapy International

Our vision is to provide high quality, individualized, Yoga Therapist training that is steeped in tradition yet grounded in current practices and that fosters deep, lasting relationships in our global community of practitioners.

Our students from around the world will be leaders in the field, supported by our international community of faculty, specialists, and graduates. The depth of these ties will ripple into the communities where our therapists are at work, sharing the benefits of this healing practice around the world.
Motivated by the Joy learning brings, you will gradually progress from basic to refined levels of understanding until you attain mastery. - Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, I-17
