800 Hour I AM Yoga Therapy™ Program

Professional Yoga Therapy Accreditation

IAYT Accredited

 

What makes I AM Yoga Therapy™ programs unique?

There are many different styles of Yoga Therapy, each of which have different areas of focus. Our 800+ hour I AM Yoga Therapy™ Professional training is designed to help you work at the root of symptoms and not just the visible effects. We approach physical symptoms as not just a purely physical event, but as a result of a constellation of thoughts, feelings, unresolved experiences and holding patterns that interact with compromised areas of the body to create symptoms. Work on symptoms singly and you could be busy for a lifetime. Work at the root, and all the symptoms simultaneously begin to dissolve. This approach to Yoga Therapy allows you to address the TOTAL person and address the entire range of causes from the invisible to the visible.

Our entire program is based around the principles of energy.

Your body is made of densified energy. All blocks whether physical, mental or emotional, are composed of varying degrees of density. If we can understand energy and how to resolve it, we can work at any one of these levels and release blocks that may be keeping the body from healing itself. Blocks can be revealed and released through yoga therapy poses combined with facilitation techniques. A doctor does not heal us, the innate intelligence of our body is what heals us. This training is designed to teach you how to remove the obstacles that are in the way of the body healing itself, whether those obstacles are physical, mental or emotional.

Mentoring

You will be assigned various Mentors to support you throughout your training depending on the module you are taking. The assistant director of the 800 hour program will be your consistent contact point. Our Mentors consist of teachers from our training and offer an exceptional depth of knowledge, skill and compassion.

Benefits for Yourself and Your Clients

This training is not just for those you will be working with. It is for you as well. You cannot give what you don’t have. You will go through all the processes you will be sharing with others. This will allow you to share with others from your own personal experience and conviction, rather than just intellectual knowledge. As a result of this 800+ hour training, your very being will become a healing presence for others. You will learn a lot, but what will really transform is who you have become.

  • Improved posture, flexibility and range of motion
  • Increased energy, emotional balance and mental clarity
  • Transformation of unhealthy thinking patterns and their reflection in the body
  • Reduction of chronic pain and tension (results vary)
  • Calming and balancing the nervous system
  • Techniques to integrate unresolved experiences at the energetic and physical level
  • Increase the body’s capacity to heal itself
Program Overview

The core principle of our 800 hour program, module 1-5 is understanding, listening to and freeing energy as a healing force within each individual. Each of our trainings represent a different facet of this core principle, and are designed to introduce the yoga therapist to a new yoga therapeutic skill set (or deepen an existing skill set) which they can then practically apply to their yoga therapy practicums and clients in both yoga therapy classes or individual sessions. Each module is interwoven with the others and is intended to eventually create an entire body of knowledge and yoga therapeutic skills which allow the yoga therapy student to have a variety of channels to most appropriately address the individual needs of the client. Modules 6-9 are designed to go deeper into the basics outlined in the previous 5 modules and go deeper into specific applications for yoga therapists. The practical applications for use in yoga therapy session follows this general formula: Teaching/instruction/modeling of the technique or yoga therapeutic skill, practicing in-class with faculty oversight and feedback, classroom exchanges of sessions, practicum overview and documention. Students are asked to fill out documentation in the practicum that follows session documentation protocols as outlined.

This 800+ hour training is centered around one core 12-day Yoga Therapy program which acts as the hub of the wheel. In this 12-day core course you will learn foundational Yoga Therapy techniques including assisted poses, prop-assisted poses and facilitation techniques that may be used in both group and one-on-one settings.

In our 800+ hour track you will gain:
•Yoga Therapy poses laid out in a comprehensive manual
•How to lead a group yoga therapy class
•Facilitation techniques
•Hands-on supervised review and practice
•Made-for-you sequences and protocols for common conditions
•A strong foundation in energy and physical anatomy basics for yoga therapy
•Profound & unique teachings of yoga psychology including the development of the self-image, the yogic perspective on the developmental journey to Source
•A unique yoga-based model for emotional integration that brings together the best of Eastern and Western approaches
•Understand energy and how to freeing its healing potential

When possible, we suggest you take Modules 1-5 in that order. Modules 1-5 each have their own practicum portion you will need to complete before taking the next module. Then begin the distance learning Modules 6, 7, 8. NOTE: Module 7 is a pre-requisite to Applied Anatomy (in Module 6).
The distance learning Modules delve deeper into the basics learned in Modules 1-5 on the subjects of: Anatomy/Physiology, Applied Psychology, Ayurveda and Assessment.

It is best if you can complete Modules 1-8 before going on to Module 9 as this module provides you an opportunity to review what you learned and skillfully combine all the components of I AM Yoga Therapy™ into an appropriate treatment plan for your clients The final practicum and exam will be provided to you upon completion of Module 9.

Module Descriptions

Module 1: Yoga Nidra Professional Training

This training introduces students to the basic philosophical tenets of I AM Yoga TherapyTM. We cover the Nature of the Self, Turiya, Koshas, how separation from the source and identification with unresolved samskaras shapes perceptions, thoughts, energy and eventually may manifest in the physical body as dis-ease. Yoga Therapy students understand the genesis of dis-ease at both the subtle (mental/emotional ) level as well as the physical level from BOTH the yogic and scientific perspectives. Yoga Therapy students are taught how to use the techniques of Yoga Nidra to reach into the core consciousness where samskaras are held and re-write core patterning from this place with the techniques of Yoga Nidra and the use of intention. They understand how experiential reconnection to Source is the basis of healing and how Yoga Nidra can re-establish this experientially. Yoga Therapy students learn about the following conditions from both a Yogic and Scientific perspective and how to use the techniques of Yoga Therapy to support the body to rebalance itself from the inside out: Stress, Trauma/PTSD, Depression/Anxiety, Habits/Addictions, Insomnia. Students receive a 5-tool methodology to discern which type of Yoga Nidra techniques are most appropriate for the client and as part of the final exam, yoga therapy students deliver a Yoga Nidra for a particular condition of their choosing to a fellow classmate with oversight, feedback and guidance from their designated mentor. The techniques of Yoga Nidra are drawn upon in both other modules including I AM Yoga Therapy Training, Advanced Yoga Nidra, and in Advanced Training: Meditation in Motion for continuity. In these subsequent trainings students learn how to apply Yoga Nidra in additional ways for the yoga therapy client.

Specific Yoga Therapy skills being taught besides above:

  • Protocol development for various conditions.
  • Modifications of protocols for specific clients.
  • Assessment as relates to development of intentions.
  • Learning how to conduct an individualized session including structure as well as logistics such as pricing. environment, finding out what the client is looking for, verbal discussion and clarification of issues using reflection and reframing techniques, development of intention, conducting individual/group session and debrief.
  • These techniques are practiced in in-class exchanges and then the student practices them on their own through the practicum assignments that follow the module.

Module 2: Yoga Therapy

I AM Yoga Therapy Training This training directly addresses how energy blocks are created through incomplete experiences at any one of the koshas and how these can become densified at subtle or gross levels. Yoga Therapy students understand how incompletions at any level can be addressed as the stagnated movement of energy through the body. Whether a condition is showing up at the subtle mental/emotional level or at the gross body level, students learn a simple facilitation technique to be aware of this energy, to give it space, to breath with it, allow it and give it space to move and integrate itself. Here the student learns to trust the wisdom of the body with non-directive facilitation and holding the space. In addition, students learn prop and partner assisted poses designed to release trapped energy in the body showing up as tension/pain/discomfort while addressing the subtler aspects that may accompany these tensions at the level of body and mind. Students also learn how to lead a Yoga therapy class and practice doing so with partners. They learn the core assessment tools of a yoga therapy session as well as introduction to basic principles of Ayurveda as they relate to yoga therapy and emotions. Mid-training students give sessions to practice what has been learned. As the final for this Module, students must be able to successfully complete a full yoga therapy session including: intake, assessment, customized yoga therapy session, integration and debrief for an individuals’ specific needs. Anatomy portions include adjusting poses and cautions for conditions such as pregnancy, hip replacements, joint conditions, fibromyalgia, heart conditions and more. Energetic anatomy and particularly the chakras are studied in-depth here. This anatomy basis is deepened in later online courses. Students also learn about limits of experience, when to refer and how, as well as current regulations, rules and ethics related to yoga therapy, which are built upon in later modules. Students learn how Yoga Nidra can be incorporated into Yoga therapy sessions and how to do so.

Specific Yoga Therapy skills being taught besides above:

  • This is where the student learns and practices the structure of any yoga therapy session they will give.
  • Protocol structure and modification: How to use the 6 limbs of an I AM Yoga Therapy session which will be the basis of any practical sessions.
  • Modifications of protocols for specific clients/ How to adjust poses for various physical conditions or other needs.
  • Practicing full sessions in class with supervision.

Module 3: Integral Breath Therapy training

Breath is one of the most powerful methods to non-mentally shift deep energetically held patterns in the body. Incorporating over 20 holistic modalities, this type of Breathwork gives you an energetic and psychological understanding of how to use the breathing process to unlock unresolved issues and the process to support healing on all planes. Ideal for those who cannot access physical poses – and just as effective. IBT can be used in conjunction with both I AM Yoga Therapy techniques and I AM Yoga Nidra, as you will learn in module 9.

Specific Yoga Therapy skills being taught besides above:

  • This is where the student learns to apply breathwork. When and how to know to use breathwork in a session and where to use it in the structure of a yoga therapy session.
  • Conducting and documenting intake and assessment and practice doing so in preparation for practicums to follow.
  • Additional integration techniques to work with clients who are having ongoing emotional releases during and after their sessions.
  • Protocol development for various conditions.
  • How to adjust breath techniques for various physical conditions or other needs.

Module 4: I AM Yoga Nidra Advanced Training

Here the yoga therapy student learns advanced techniques of Yoga Nidra specifically designed to work with emotional integration including: unresolved emotions, grief, and trauma using a specific protocol for such conditions depending on where the individual is in their healing process. Yoga Therapy students learn how to assess where the client is in the stage of their healing and how to use specific Yoga Nidra techniques to address this. In addition, Yoga Therapy students go deeper into the philosophical underpinnings of Yoga Therapy as outlined in various scriptural texts including the Mahanirvana Tantra as the basis for understanding how mis-identification leads to effects in the body and how yoga therapy seeks to clear these effects.

Specific Yoga Therapy skills being taught besides above:

  • The student receives additional therapeutic Yoga Nidra techniques.
  • Students learn how to assess and deliver Yoga Nidra protocols for grief, trauma, inner child and other forms of emotional integration.
  • Students practice an integration technique to give to clients who are having ongoing emotional releases between sessions.

Module 5: I AM Yoga Advanced Training: Meditation in Motion

This module is primarily designed to teach the yoga therapy student more techniques to lead a yoga therapy class to a group of individuals with a particular condition. The student learns how to lead group sessions, and gains more techniques to help the student access the inner intelligence of the body. Students learn more poses to lead in group yoga therapy sessions and also incorporate tools of I AM Yoga NidraTM as well. Different from a traditional yoga training, Yoga Therapy students learn specific wording and techniques to guide the student to become aware of areas of frozen prana, to move into these areas consciously and with breath and awareness to allow this energy to move and release itself. Yoga therapy students also go deeper into the understanding of energy as a force for inner healing and awakening through study of various scriptures. They also gain skills to aid others in listening to the intelligence of the life force in daily life through both sensation and intuition.

Specific Yoga Therapy skills being taught besides above:

  • Student learns and practices new techniques for teaching group yoga therapy classes.
  • Students learn to lead appropriate practices for groups, keeping in mind the assessment of their conditions, limitations, possibilities, and the overall practice strategy.
  • Practicum assignments to gain real-life experience
