After working with the nice people at the Australian Association of Yoga Therapy, I had the workshop with additional hours for a mentored project approved for Yoga Therapy training hours. The International Yoga Therapy Association has just increased their training hours and have the option of taking training for special populations - like seniors, pregnant women, and children. So I feel like I'm meeting the need with my course!
I have returned from the first part of the training in Bali and I am very excited about the approach that was presented. It places asana as part of the system instead of the primary emphasis it has in many of our classes. The approach returns to the original focus of yoga to the teacher and student working together to reach the student's goals. It looks at the student holistically: body, lifestyle, energy levels, and ability to find and implement new purposes while ridding oneself of old baggage. Something that everyone can use - I know I certainly can. I have three more training modules but I am very excited about implementing this new system of yoga!
