Last chance to join the next EYT cohort for the Accredited Yoga Therapist Training Program. Two spots available for March 15th – 24th!


EYT has two missions:

  • To offer a means for safe, personal healing to people living with chronic pain or illness through customized yoga therapy.

  • To help develop highly qualified yoga teachers and subsequently to provide comprehensive training in yoga cikitsa or yoga therapy for teachers who are motivated to go deeper.


The spring board for developing these programs arises from the same fundamental teaching of yoga: That we bear responsibility for reducing suffering in ourselves; and once we have achieved a level of health we are to be of service to others.


Essential Yoga Therapy provides high quality and skilled therapeutic application of yoga.

The education and skills required to work as a yoga therapist surpass those of a yoga teacher, necessitating a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology and psycho-spirituality from both the eastern and western traditions.
