These steps are recommended for anyone wishing to specialize in work with this population, work with private clients, or provide Yoga for Arthritis in healthcare settings. 

    Yoga for Arthritis was developed by yoga researcher and arthritis expert Steffany Moonaz, PhD, along with an interdisciplinary team, including rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with arthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial at Johns Hopkins University, the program’s participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life. Such evidence is vital for bridging the integrative yoga world with medical healthcare, making these practices more accessible to those who really need them.

    Foundations of Integral Yoga Therapy Teacher Training

    Dive into the richness of therapeutic yoga within the authentic lineage of Integral Yoga! In this training, we will use the panchamaya kosha model to explore human health. Using the panchamaya kosha model as a guide, we also will review common disease processes from both yogic and western medical perspectives. Discover new ways to consider the six branches of Integral Yoga into a therapeutic practice(s), whether it is adapted asana, devotional practices outside of a “traditional” yoga setting, or using service as a healing modality. Participants will review the practical skills required of a Yoga Therapist, develop a mock treatment plan for a client, and deepen/review their understanding of therapeutic relationships, assessment skills, and therapeutic plans. Inactive Yoga Therapists interested in kick-starting their service will find this an excellent source to restart!
