Level 2 Training Applied Yoga Therapy

This 100-hour Level 2 Applied Yoga Therapy course is designed to build upon the knowledge and understanding gained from the Level 1 Foundations in Yoga Therapy course and to continue to deepen your knowledge on your path to become a yoga therapist. There are 2 main themes to this training: 1) The Living Vitality of your Authentic Self: Prana and the Application of Sacred Healing and  2) Applied Ayurvedic Studies.
