This in-depth 7-day program is the first module of Ananda’s Yoga Therapy Training. It will give you many practical foundational skills necessary for a safe and effective yoga therapy practice.

  • Gain practical client assessment skills (including structural and functional assessment, basic Ayurvedic constitution assessment)
  • Learn how to take and document a client history
  • Learn to create, document, and evaluate individualized therapeutic yoga plans
  • Deepen your understanding of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology
  • Learn how to design individualized yoga therapy regimes
  • Discover how Yoga and Ayurveda work together to promote well-being of body, mind, and spirit.
  • Deepen your understanding of the breadth of Yoga teachings (asanas, meditation, pranayama, diet, yoga philosophy, intuition, lifestyle, and more), and how they can be used to help a client therapeutically
  • Explore Energy Healing: how to send healing energy to others; the roles of prayer and intention; the power of the mind; the therapeutic use of affirmations, visualizations, and mantra
  • Explore important issues in conducting the business of yoga therapy

In short, by the end of the week, you will have been given the basic skills for creating your own yoga therapy practice. We hope you will take advantage of this rich opportunity!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
