Yoga Classroom Therapeutics (YCT)

A new yoga student brings the tensions from decades (or perhaps from lifetimes) with them.  They may not be able to do things you take for granted.  How do you help them?  Every pose has a quick trick, an extra prop, an adjustment or variation that will make yoga accessible to them. These are Svaroopa® Yoga's Classroom Therapeutics.  Learn how to help the yogis who need extra help.  A YCT training is available for each of our YTT programs, for Levels 1, 2, 3 & 4.

International Association of Yoga Therapists has accredited our Yoga Therapist Training, which includes YCT 1 & YCT 2.  In addition, you may further your training in classroom therapeutics in our YCT 3 & YCT 4. 

Professional Yoga Therapist (PYT)

Customizing the physical practices to your clients’ needs is one of the most satisfying ways to serve.  It also provides a sustainable livelihood and lifestyle. 

More importantly, you can see the genuine service you provide as you watch your clients quickly improve, session by session. In addition to learning how to offer Svaroopa® Yoga private sessions, you also learn classroom therapeutics and our outstanding Medical Yoga course.  Learn more...
