Stage One Foundation

Compulsory first stage of full training

Online starting 22nd March 2025

An experiential course that encourages creative thinking in learning how to use Yoga Therapy Models and adapt practices for the needs of  clients suffering from physical or mental health conditions.  We advocate a non prescriptive, ‘no one cure fits all’ and a ‘person centred’ approach throughout the course.

This course is designed for:

  • Yoga teachers to develop therapeutic skills in providing safe and effective Yoga Therapy practices for chronic physical and mental health conditions. A  minimum of 200 hours yoga training and 2 years post training teaching experience is advised
  • Health professionals from therapeutic backgrounds both from NHS and private sector, seeking to improve their knowledge and skill in the mind and body relationship


The course places emphasis on our connections with the healing powers of Nature. Each training day will consist of exploring Yoga Therapy conditions, through case studies, in areas of health such as :

  • The Elderly
  • Mental Health
  • Cardiovascular
  • Respiratory
  • Cancer
  • Neurology
  • Spinal and
  • Musculoskeletal


There will also be seminars on the Anatomy and Physiology relating to medical conditions explored and how to apply them in yoga therapy sessions.

Mindful compassionate based practise and somatics will be at the heart of the training encouraging the trainee to explore their own health imbalances to further understand the health imbalances of others.

I would suggest that anyone considering training as a Yoga Therapist, should take this foundation course. It provides an immense amount of valuable information, which makes you a better Yoga Teacher
