IMG_7209Yoga Therapy

Our Yoga Therapy Program offers you life-support through yoga, and the approach is a rare gem for those interested in yoga practice as a healing modality. IN THE ANCIENT CONTEXT, ALL YOGA WAS YOGA THERAPY – a process whereby a teacher meets a student to assess her specific needs, designs an evolving practice that the student does over time, and the teacher applies tools very adeptly to refine the practice in order to suit the student’s physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual development. You can take your yoga home with you and practice in the most healing and authentic way by doing an individually tailored practice on a daily basis which can very specifically move you towards your goals.

Teacher Training

Become a 200, 300 and 500 hour certified teacher in the direct teaching tradition of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. This training emphasizes the teacher – student relationship as a catalyst for personal transformation. Each student is assigned a mentor, and our trainees progress according to their needs, while also learning how to help others do the same. The course is designed for both existing teachers from other traditions and brand new teachers, as well. Prepare to learn authentic and powerful theories and practices to implement in your own lives and the lives of the general population. We are an RYS with Yoga Alliance.

Vedic Chant

Kausthub Desikachar PhotographyChanting of well-preserved and potent ancient texts introduces the powerful tool of sound to take a daily yoga practice to an entirely new level of potency. We offer in-person classes as well as one-on-one, live, online instruction. Experience a brand new set of qualities in your life depending on your individual needs and the mantra-s you learn, such as a more focused mind, increased inner trust, abundance in your life, joy in your heart, and other innumerable benefits.

Self-Practice677EC7CB-05AF-4975-829B-FC60DD2D4CF5

Have you come to yoga to address issues that persist despite diligent practice? Whether it is anxiety, migraines, stubborn weight accumulation, self-esteem struggles, weakness, stiffness, immunity, menopause symptoms, etc., we can begin to address these directly through setting up short and long term practice goals that we review monthly.

Individualization in yoga practice, the original method, channels these powerful, healing ancient teachings directly to your doorstep so that your various needs (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) can be addressed within your yoga practice. This customized group class gives you the discipline-building of a group setting, guiding you step-by-step to engage in home practice and have yoga as a lifestyle, not just a hobby.

The pre-requisite is a once-monthly Yoga Therapy consultation with Danielle. She will assess and design a practice for you to implement at home. In our self-practice classes at the center, you come in and practice at your own pace, meanwhile a teacher works with you personally to guide you along and answer any questions you may have. Email her for an appointment at danielle@yoga-foundation.com.

Yoga Sutra Philosophy

Join usme&notebook as we uncover the essence behind this text’s encrypted messages. Its profound, optimistic view on the cultivation of clarity and reduction of hindrances that prevent us from blossoming into our full potential IS what is missing in today’s body-centered yoga approach that dead-ends at downward facing dog. Your day-to-day implementation of yoga into your life will change for good, and for the better, with this text as a guiding light on your yoga journey.

Group Classes

tadaka2We address multiple needs of various populations and ensure that you, our students, can become more vital and content as a result of learning and practicing yoga. Whether your needs are physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual, we understand how to apply the many tools of yoga to guide you closer to your goals. See the schedule.

Special Needs Classes

We offer special needs classes for groups who are in the same boat, so to speak. These make sure to address the goals and challenges specific to the group – fertility/pre-natal/post-natal, breast cancer, chair-based, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension.

Continuing Education Courses

Understanding the philosophy behind these practices is vital in order to bring the yoga into your life; thus, we teach continuing education workshops on yoga and chanting of ancient texts to extend the benefits beyond your daily yoga practice. Continuing education courses on Vedic Chant, Yoga Sutra Philosophy, prāṇāyāma (the breathing practices of yoga) and dhyānam (the meditation practices of yoga) fortify new and old practitioners of yoga with progressive, deep, effective techniques to transform into more stable, clear, empowered beings.
