The Bridge from Teaching to Group Yoga Therapy

The Bridge from Teaching to Group Yoga Therapy
During our first year together, we help bridge your knowledge from previous Yoga Teacher Trainings to understanding the fundamentals of teaching Yoga Therapy to groups in the Śrī Kriṣṇamācārya-Śrī T.K.V. Deśikachar/Deśīkācār and Iyengar Restorative Yoga Traditions. 

This will start with a 4 to 8 month online internship, taking weekly Yoga Therapy group classes to embody the basics before doing our first 5 weeks of course work the following summer that offers you the basics of teaching in this lineage of teachings.

Summer Intensive Musings

These 8 Yoga Therapists-in-training have made it to the end of Term 3 of their 1000-hour, IAYT-accredited program with Yoga Therapy International (YTI). We had 5 in-person and 3 online students this term, as we again found creative aways to teach hybridly to students joining remotely from as far away as Australia. 

We also would like to thank our Term 3 faculty, Neil Pearson, Tracy Dignum and Nicole Marcia as well as our alumni Camela Cowan, Karen Petersen and Tiffany Pettett, who all supported our students and Maggie this term.

Interview with Prerna Ramanathan, C-IAYT

We recently interviewed Prerna Ramanathan from Bangalore, India, about her experiences studying with Yoga Therapy International (YTI), 2017-2019. She received her CYT 1000 certificate from Yoga Therapy International in June 2019, and soon afterwards, she became the first C-IAYT (Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists) from India. Watch Maggie and Prerna’s conversation or read an interview below.
