Pose By Pose Yoga, Yoga Therapy Program
Pose by Pose Yoga has always been a school founded in the idea that “yoga is therapy.” We have been a proud member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) from our inception, and continue to adhere to their rigorous standards as well as those of Yoga Alliance(YA).
As a member of IAYT and YA, we are given great guidance over the programs we run, and are happy to include the following Yoga Therapy Programs in our school directory:
Prenatal Yoga– Our prenatal program is Yoga Alliance Registered, and in addition to the standards Yoga Alliance requires, we added a post-natal section to our training to understand the importance of care for the mother after giving birth. We also include a Mommy-Baby, Ayurvedic, Nutrition and Partner Yoga segment to make sure we cover all the complex needs of the mommy to be.
Outreach Yoga– This program is designed in conjunction with our work with Hillsborough County Children Services. The program trains you to work with Domestic Violence victims in shelters as well as Children placed in Group Homes. This program includes a visit from a local domestic violence shelter director as well as a trip to a Group Home.
Teaching Seniors– Our Teaching Seniors program is a comprehensive program that leads you in the appropriate asana, pranayama and more for adults over 50. The program works in conjunction with our work with The University of South Florida’s OLLI program, and includes an apprenticeship in our most successful program. The training is not limited to “seniors” as it includes work for Mobile Seniors, Limited Mobility, Chair Yoga, Bed Yoga and End of Life. The program recognizes that one does not have to be a senior to need modifications in ones yoga practice.
In addition to these great programs, our 200 and 300 hour Yoga Alliance Registered programs also cover the basics of yoga as therapy in each monthly module.

Please note, that the above programs are offered only to those who have graduated from a Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certified Training or those enrolled in Pose By Pose Yoga’s Yoga Teacher Training.
Much more will be posted in the coming months. Thank you!
