Natural Awakenings Tucson

Yoga Teacher Training Program Beginning August

Pima Community College has partnered with Yoga Therapy College, an affiliate of Integrative Yoga Therapy, to offer a 200-hour comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of teaching yoga, with a therapeutic approach. Weekend teacher training begins at 6 p.m., August 26, and runs through December 18.

Medical research shows that yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies to help individuals facing health challenges, at any level, manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality and improve attitude. Participants in yoga transform their body with improved brain function, lower stress levels and increased flexibility. After a few months, they may experience lower blood pressure, improved lung capacity, improved sexual function, reduced chronic pain, anxiety relief, lower blood sugar levels in diabetics and improved sense of balance; and after years, strong bones, healthy weight and lower risk of heart disease.

It is well known that yoga can enhance our physical and emotional well-being, but when yoga is practiced with the therapeutic form, it can help prevent and aid recovery from physical and mental ailments. Those interested in becoming a certified yoga instructor and those currently certified instructors will benefit their students with the techniques learned in this program.
