Stress is a component of nearly every illness, either as a cause or an effect. So this course is also a part of the Integral Yoga Therapy curriculum. This training provides a solid foundation for many other specialized Yoga Therapy trainings including cardiac, cancer, and arthritis. This course provides good basic skills for PTSD, but further training is recommended if you want to specialize in teaching for PTSD.

Testimonials

I have 7 different Yoga teaching certifications. IYI Stress Management Training is the backbone of everything I teach because it takes Yoga off the mat and into people's lives. I can give people a prescription to reduce the negative effects of stress. It's a wonderful roadmap to the refuge of a calm mind, and a relaxed, awakened body. I've also written a book called “Yoga Inflight” that is based on Stress Management TT. — M. Heron

Integral Yoga Stress Management Teacher Training was one of the best programs I have ever attended. Everything was covered, from a deep understanding of stress and Yoga stress management to teaching many different groups of people. It included how to modify poses for people with special needs, how to structure classes, and how to effectively market your newfound skills. I continue to use the written manual often. — D. Thompson

I took the Integral Yoga Stress Management Teacher Training in 2012. Since then, I have taught Stress Management in a Pharmaceutical Residency program, to the staff of the Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital, at women's and men's maximum-security prisons, the South Carolina Department of Water Works, Michelin Tire Company, a large Belgian manufacturing company, and four law firms. In many settings, I don't even mention the word “Yoga”. It's the essential Yoga teachings re-framed for a general audience. — Rikki Donahoe
