Upcoming Course Details

Functional Yoga Therapy Advanced Assessment & Therapeutic Planning Training

As a new paradigm sweeps access the world, mainly due to Covid-19 and its future implications, online virtual assessments and treatments have become essential to the world of Yoga Therapy.   In November of 2020 we stepped up to evolve our signature advanced training into a virtual format.  Within this virtual platform, we have re-created the large body of work to incorporate a very multi-dimensional teaching and learning environment, in a manner consistent with the broader concept of Telehealth. 

Functional Yoga Therapy continues to update its material to keep up with new research in the broadening world of functional movement.  We have a new and greatly expanded manual, including a large online library of assessment and protocol videos. In addition, the manual and coursework includes specifics on Tele-Yoga-Therapy, FYT’s specifics for virtual assessment and therapeutic protocol. 

For those seeking to refresh their assessment skill set and add new virtual components to your Yoga Therapy Toolbox, we invite you to join one of our upcoming online training sessions.  Any C-IAYT looking for credits can earn Approved Professional Development (APD) hours for IAYT from both courses, as well as Continuing Education (CE) hours for Yoga Alliance.

Our 65hr Functional Yoga Therapy: Advanced Assessment and Treatment Planning Course includes a newly expanded printed manual mailed to you prior to the training, newly updated assessment forms and handouts, 35hrs of Classroom time, over 40 Recorded Lecture and Assessment Videos and continued access to our Online FYT Resource Library.  In addition, you are assigned a mentor highly experienced in the concepts of Functional Yoga Therapy to offer guidance as you work with the course.

In Fall 2023, Functional Yoga Therapy: Advanced Assessment Techniques and Therapeutic Protocol training will be held in a fully virtual format of online preparatory work and live Zoom sessions.

There is approximately 25 hours of self-paced preparatory work to be completed prior to the live virtual training, all accessed on our learning system with the help of a mentor. This is followed two weekends, November 11-12 and 18-19, 2023. Post live training, completion of a live assessment assignment with mentor present is due by December 15, 2023.
