Yoga Psychology & Mental Health Workshops – Saturday 24th July – ONLINE!

Yoga Therapy meeting the needs of a changing world

As more and more evidence of yoga therapy’s benefits accumulates, naturally interest continues to grow in both:

  • Yoga therapy as a respected and complementary adjunct to conventional treatments for people, and
  • Yoga therapy as an attractive and satisfying career option for those working in the yoga industry.
