What is Yoga United Yoga Therapy (YUYT)?

This is a ground-breaking new professional training for people who wish to see change in the world, and create a successful career as a yoga therapist.

People often seek out professionals to fix, cure and offer prescriptions. When health seekers are educated in taking back responsibility, the body has a miraculous capacity to heal itself. This intuitive and sensitive approach meets, greets and respects the whole person with their own perspectives and experiences.  Compassion, collaboration and great care are employed to coach and draw out the individual’s understanding, not to supply a prescription set by the therapist.

Through this training, you will gain skills and knowledge to empower others to take control of their own health and wellbeing, gain more independence, joy and meaning in their lives.

This way of being starts with you! Module 1 starts as a personal development course as well as professional development and pre-requisite for the full training. Reflection and self development are supported with a mentor for guidance in this ongoing process running alongside the learning. There will be time for planning your career, manifesting the business you want – from finding clients and working within a specialty, to marketing and promotion so you can speak to the clients you wish to attact.

Who can join this course? You do not have to be a yoga teacher to join this course. As well as  yoga teachers, applications are welcome from all professionals working in health settings who wish to add another dimension to their work and create exceptional outcomes for their clients.

Why train to be a yoga therapist with Yoga United Education? Invest in your own growth and potential, your community and the future of this planet.

Yoga Therapy is fast becoming a recognised and scientifically proven mind/body modality in guiding people to improved physical, mental, and emotional health. With over-stretched health services, high rates of absenteeism at work due to illness and dis-ease, and pharmaceutical quick fixes with long-term side effects, yoga therapy works alongside other therapies to deliver complementary approaches to holistic healing and wellness.

With modules delivered by internationally acclaimed yoga therapists and educators, this special training brings together many successful approaches to yoga therapy in one training.

Definitions of yoga therapy we like at YU Ed

“The purpose of yoga therapy is to lead us to the True Self. Once there, our bliss filled nature as the essence of love is experienced. I don’t treat conditions. I am not a doctor nor do I have a physical therapy license. I treat the delusion of not knowing your Self and how to find your way past pain and suffering. I guide you, not treat you” Mukunda Stiles

 “Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teaching and practices of yoga” (IAYT definition of yoga therapy)

A note from Judy Hirsh Sampath, Director of studies “For this exciting new training programme, I have gathered together a selection of therapeutic yoga practices and ways of being that I consider to be vital for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. With a team of powerfully engaging tutors, yoga therapists, and educators, our intention is to guide students, teachers, carers, and therapists to collect their own selection of resources to engage more fully in your relationships within your professional realm and personal life.”

GUEST MODULES – we are honoured to introduce our special guest teachers delivering two new modules on yoga therapy in support of Yoga United’s brand new yoga therapy course.

Tutors & Mentors – You will get to know your mentors through their teaching, in your mentor groups and have ongoing support throughout the training. You will always have the opportunity to talk through what’s happening in your own journey of becoming a yoga therapist, feedback on written assignments and assessments, and practice sessions with peers and clients.

We actively support inclusivity and diversity in our trainings and are able to offer learning support for those who need it.
