Yoga therapy post grad diploma in Wales, March 2017
This course is accredited with the British Council of Yoga therapists and successful candidates are eligible to register with the Complementary and natural healthcare council.
We are looking for experienced yoga teachers who are looking to develop their knowledge and skills to work in the field of yoga therapy. Yoga therapy is an emerging therapeutic approach for individuals and small groups to help heal a wide range of specific condition and promote health.
To a certain degree all yoga teachers take the role of yoga therapist. Whenever yoga methods are prescribed to aid specific health conditions, or whenever you give a student the alternate nostril breath or other pranayama exercises to aid sinus problems, for example, then you are taking the role of yoga therapist.
The boundary between yoga teacher and yoga therapist is blurring, and more yoga teachers are being put into the position of therapist. Yoga teachers often say to us, that they 'just wish they knew what yoga practices to give for different health conditions'.
With G.P.'s trying to cut down on spending, and the government looking for cheaper ways to maintain health, it is only natural that more people are being referred to yoga as an aid in their recovery.
Are you a yoga teacher with over two years of experience? Are you interested in becoming a yoga therapist?
If you’re thinking of doing the teacher training course, just go for it! It’s brilliant for yourself and a great way to help others
Starting my journey on the Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course was like all my dreams coming true and I cannot wait for the next module. Being amongst supportive, like-minded students and tutors was inspiring and confirmed to me that I can do this!!
Having attended classes for over a year it was really good to have a taster of a longer session and different poses, breathing techniques. Felt very centred.
