Yoga Therapy Foundational Training is for everyone wanting to take their yoga teaching further or for those who wish to become yoga therapists.

Learn from Leanne Davis how to structure the delivery of seeing a client, taking an entire client history and assessment. You will study yoga therapy course planning and sequencing throughout this foundational course under the traditional viniyoga therapy model.

Over the duration of this whole four-day intensive, you will broaden your mind and understand the true origins of Yoga whilst also bringing this into a modern-day one-to-one or clinical setting. The course design offers you fundamental structure and complete confidence in your ability to develop programming as a yoga therapist, with a strong focus on course planning and sequencing for the individual. The course follows a structured and traditional healing paradigm, teaching you how to deliver a Yoga therapy program with an ongoing review.

You will learn how to perform observation (Darshana), perform palpation (sparshana), questioning (Prashna), touch (Sparshana), including basic pulse assessment, (Nadi Vignan).

Over the duration of your training, you will come to understand the appropriate application of Heyam, Hetu, Hanam and Upayam on various levels and dimensions: exploring the root cause of the problem (Heyam-Hetu) before deciding collaboratively what the goal of the practice is (Hanum) and what the actual Yoga therapy practice (Upayam).

We highly encourage you to embark upon this long-held traditional form of healing.
