Essential Yoga Therapy offers a gentle, therapeutic orientation to yoga that is supportive of those with limited mobility, or who are living with chronic pain and illness.


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.
