Will I Have The Ability To Teach A Yoga Class Outside Of Clinical Practice?


All students who follow the curriculum, complete the online content with the training manual and attend contact hours of training will have an exceptional understanding of yoga and be more than prepared to teach a public yoga class as well private sessions to their clients. This clinical training I have developed is the same training that many of the leading teachers along the Wasatch front have taken from me and gone on to become exceptional teachers in their field. The addition to this training is the accent on trauma, mindfulness for therapists and chair yoga.




Does This Mean I Will Be A Registerd RYT Yoga Teacher?


This training is not intended to become a RYT yoga teacher. I do have a 200 hour RYT school where, with additional hours and payment, we can make the RYT available to you. It’s important to understand why I’m not making this training RYT and what it would mean for you if you choose to pay the additional finances to become RYT.

RYT is a registry with limited value to you and is not a governing agency in any state. Clinical Yoga Training, CYT, will provide a number of things that will set CYT apart – such as ongoing training – access to our research based results – networks / chat rooms with other CYT teachers.

RYT Although helpful for its time, the registry with RYT is simply that, a registry. It’s comparable to being on a registry for a life coach or personal trainer. It can mean that a person has taken a lot of training and can be very helpful, but is not the same credentials as being overseen by state laws and regulations to ensure the quality of the services and integrity provided.

What Are The Benefits To This Type Of Training?


SPECIFICITY: This training is intended to educate the medical and clinical community and the populations they serve. Rather than focusing on adult gymnastics, our training is about the underpinnings of yoga and the subtle movement that almost anybody can perform. We offer the specific movement therapists would need such as chair yoga, trauma sensitive movement, teaching clients to use appropriate breathing techniques outside of their appointments and using meditation to overcome compassion fatigue for the therapists.

MINIMUM TIME FOR MAXIMUM EDUCATION: The online training allows accelerated education. I’ve facilitated yoga teacher trainings for more than 12 years and held 200 – 500 hour trainings. This training is my 500 Hour Training and allows for the maximum amount of training in the most condensed time frame.
