What Students Are Saying About IYT
"I felt I got a very solid foundation in anatomy, physiology, working with specific injuries, emotional issues, and diseases (the whole gamut), Chakra work, working with Koshas and Vayus, meditation, pranayama, imagery, yoga nidra, as well as an introduction to the use of Ayurveda in teaching yoga, ,…I feel like I could go on and on. Basically, I have yet to meet a client where I did not know where to start-that all comes from the IYT training. We did A LOT of hands on work, we developed programs with support and assistance, plus they pool all of the programs at the end of the training, and share the outlines. Each training, I went home with an arsenal of already established 8 week programs for many typical client issues (heart disease, anxiety, knee pain, infertility, insomnia…). I have modified most, but they are great starting points."
– Genevieve Y.
"The depth of Yoga tools and physiology taught in this course is difficult to describe. I am taking home an understanding of Yoga concepts that brings one far beyond the physical aspects of the conditions of humanity."
- Cherie K.
"The program had a great way of building on my previous knowledge without excluding my yogic lineage. I love the way all of the parts come together for a very organized way of creating a therapy program for any condition. I feel such gratitude for all of this knowledge."
