Level One - 310 Hours

Next program begins September 23rd. Register by August 10 with a deposit and save $250.

Level I of the Comprehensive Yoga Therapy program at YogaLife Institute focuses on real-life applications of foundational yogic principles and tools to assist clients in more realistically managing their stress points and living better, more wholesome lives. Using the classical yoga lineage designed for modern householder life, trainees will learn means of empowering those they work with toward Self-realization as a path to wellness. But the focus of this training is not solely on skills for working with others, the mastery of these techniques starts first with the application in the trainees’ own lives. Additionally, students will learn and develop essential tools for self-care of the therapist, ensuring that their inner balance is maintained so as to be the most effective guide for others.

In addition to the formal structure of the course as described below to facilitate learning, a big piece of students’ growth is in the interaction with their peers. This program encourages active listening and sharing, not from the advice perspective, but from the communal benefit of hearing different perspectives and experiences. This program takes pride in the fact that essentially every moment from the first is a learning opportunity – a vision we encourage in those that we work with as clients as well!

In-depth topics of study offered in Level I of the training (and advanced/mastered in Levels II and III) include:
