The EYT Bridge Program is a requirement for all RYT500s from teacher trainings other than EYT. It acts as Part I of the Therapist Training. The Bridge program provides the fundamentals of the EYT approach to yoga therapy followed by a year of mentorship to support students in weaving these new concepts directly into their teaching repertoire. It is strongly recommended that prior to participating in Part II of the EYT Therapist Training, all students take Yoga, Fascia, and the New Anatomy of the Body - A Yoga U Webinar Course with Tom Meyers and Robin Rothenberg or equivalent training in the fascial lines.
This 10-day training is an intensive immersion in the EYT orientation to yoga therapy. The Bridge Program will deepen your understanding of yoga through in-depth exploration of the following topics:
Science of respiration
Introduction to the fascial lines and the five directions of movement
Proper sequencing to ensure structural safety
The Human Energy System
The pancha maya kosha as a model for healing
Vedic chanting and study of the Yoga Sutras will be woven in over the course of the week. A recommended list of sutra translations will be sent out along with your letter of acceptance. This intensive will equip you with tools to enrich your personal practice and inspire your students.
Held at the EYT Studio in Fall City, Washington (25 miles east of Seattle). The EYT Studio is a non-residential center. Local housing options will be necessary for students from outside the Seattle area. EYT supports students in finding affordable housing and support for car-pooling to make Foundations as economical as possible.

8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. through Apr.1; End time on Apr. 2, 4 p.m.
To note: Participation in the Bridge Program does not guarantee placement in Part II of the EYT Therapist Training. This will be based on objective assessment of teaching skills, capacity to interweave and work on a multi-dimensional (kosha) level, and dedication to personal practice and transformation.
The Bridge Program is not intended as a stand alone training. Priority will be given to those accepted to Foundations and/or the EYT Therapist Training Program.
