Yoga Therapy Courses

We are delighted to announce that TSYP will be starting a comprehensive 700 hour yoga therapist training in September 2023. 

This British Council for Yoga Therapy accredited course will be rooted in the tradition of TKV Desikachar with its emphasis on adapting yoga therapy for the individual.  It will be of particular interest to those seeking to promote mental and physical wellbeing and to support individuals with chronic diseases. 

The course may be taken as a progression following Yoga Teacher Training or as Continuing Professional Development and will be a blend of weekly online sessions to equip students with theoretical knowledge, and in person therapeutic skills training. The latter will be delivered as eight sessions of four days each at three-monthly intervals.

The training will be delivered by a core faculty of qualified and experienced yoga therapists and guest lecturers who will bring expertise in specific areas.

The course duration is 30 months; 400 direct contact hours of which 250 hours are in person and 150 online (via Zoom).
