In this course you will study eastern philosophies, how they support the change process, and how they connect to your work as a Yoga Therapist or Yoga Teacher.  The course is suited to both Phoenix Rising students as well as students from other backgrounds or enrolled in other programs.  _MG_9538

Our approach to yoga philosophy is broad and experiential.   We recognize that different paths of yoga draw from many and varied traditions.  We will dive into our traditional Yogic roots in Vedanta but will also draw from other Eastern philosophies including the Buddha Dharma and the other paths.  We will also reference the connection between traditional philosophies and the paradigms underlying those elements of contemporary psychology that inform our practices.

Our work together will be experiential and personal in nature as well.  Our intention is to explore philosophy through applied experience as well as through the lens of our own personal lives and our roles as teachers and therapists.

This course is a required course for the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Practitioner Certification (PRYT 600 and IAYT 954 Programs). It can also be taken independently for continuing education credits, personal interest and development or in conjunction with another yoga therapy school’s program. Transfer credit may be available; please inquire if interested.
