Immerse in higher learning by taking the initiative to become a 500 level RYT with our Adaptive Therapeutic Advanced Program providing skills in Yoga Therapy, Self Care, and Professional Development.

You will learn to tailor sequences, treatment plans, and implement holistic methods for special populations in therapeutic settings. This program will cultivate a deeper grasp for yoga philosophy, the use of evidence informed practice and incorporating yoga in a professional way while deepening your understanding in the therapeutic principles. This training emphasizes on the importance of adequate self care, creating and holding space for others, holistic wellness, and the power of lifestyle choice. Designed to complement approaches already being used in client and patient centered professions, explore the important role this powerful therapy plays in living well, health care today and the continuum of care (CAM).

The yoga therapy components of this training are based on our speciality training in the therapeutic application of yoga, the use of yoga as a complimentary medicine, case study facilitation, and patient care; not derived from our status as a RYS with Yoga Alliance Registry.

"This training has been such a wonderful experience! Everyone who came along this journey each brought their own amazing spirit, love, and care. I loved learning so much information about the chakras, yoga for anxiety, yoga for depression, prenatal yoga and most importantly self care. Thank you Melissa! This training has transformed my life for the best." Tracy, 300 Hour Graduate

Over this eight-month RYS 300 hour training, you will learn to work with groups or individuals with adaptive and/or therapeutic needs. This training is for yoga teachers trained at the RYT200 level who are looking to enhance and expand the way they show up for themselves and for oth- ers. One of the strengths of this training is that you will be learning from three different primary instructors, each focusing on their strengths in the world of adaptive and therapeutic yoga. Each weekend you will delve deeply into one part of this curriculum. For example, just some of what you will learn will be: to specialize and tailor yoga for special populations, you will learn how to use anatomy to help with client issue diagnosis, you will develop a deeper appreciation of yoga philosophy and how to apply it in your sessions, you will read and learn from evidence-informed studies and learn how western medicine and points of view complement traditional holistic yogic practices. This training emphasizes the importance of self-care, creating and holding space for others, mind-body medicine, and the power of lifestyle choice. Not only will you be given support during the weekend training, there will also be online office hours for any additional help you may need. The culmination of this training is a 30-hour practicum, focusing on an element from the training that you would like to delve more deeply into. It is our intent as teachers that after the successful completion of your training and practicum that you will then have a practice-ready that you can take and teach to your population of choice.
