Yoga Therapy is one of the fastest growing fields of complementary healthcare. Our graduates find therapeutic work privately, in the NHS, in private medical centres, or working with special interest groups. Some choose simply to integrate their therapy knowledge for self development or into their yoga classes taking them to another level.

At Real Yoga, individual student development is our priority and is at the heart of everything we do. Training groups are smaller than most schools and you will also be assigned a personal mentor. This will ensure that you receive support and attention appropriate to your individual needs. The Real Yoga in house teaching team is supported by experts fields such as anatomy and movement, sound as a healing modality and Ayurveda.

On the course, you will:

  • Take your yoga teaching skills to another level
  • Learn therapy skills and holistic principles
  • Learn communication skills for one to one work and how to develop the therapeutic relationship
  • Study subtle energy systems in relation to health problems and yoga practices
  • Study applied anatomy and physiology relevant to common illnesses
  • Learn how to work with clients suffering from trauma and other emotional imbalances
  • Learn the yoga understanding of disease
  • Learn how to run a professional yoga therapy practice
