In the 50-hour Medical Yoga Therapy Intensive Training, you will study and practice the basic Yoga principles with the focus on how to treat and cure disease with Yoga in a therapeutical approach with- and under the guidance of a multi-professional team of Yoga teachers and Yoga therapists.
With the help of props such as belts, ropes at the wall, chairs and blocks, alternate active and passive stretching of the muscles, Yoga Therapy gives health, flexibility, resilience and balance within the whole body system.
With this special technique, this treatment offers postural correction and alignment of the body structure to maintain the health of the internal spaces, i.g. joints and body cavities, and maintains the primary & secondary curvature of the spine.
Many practitioners of Yoga often get inspired to start because of issues in their body such as injury, pain, and even chronic illnesses, because of stress, burn-out and mental health issues.
