Through this program, SIHY teaches Yoga Health Educators to become vital selfless teachers in the therapeutic application of classical Yoga techniques to positive health; integrating body, mind and spirit.
The Yoga Health Educator training is a holistic Yoga program, giving Yoga Teachers an opportunity to expand their skills and expertise to facilitate the healing and wellness of participants in their own communities. Through the application of classical Yoga and Ayurveda sciences the Yoga Health Educator works through a conscious and proactive model, giving participants the tools to restore their own health, reduce stress and bring balance and purpose to their life. You learn to work alongside the current medical paradigm to augment care with deep healing Yoga practices through lifestyle, diet, asana, pranayama, relaxation and meditation. These classical techniques can be used to address specific health conditions and their symptoms to provide a greater sense of well-being and discover a lasting sense of peace; returning to a life of meaning and purpose.
