Yoga Teacher Training Program
Pima Community College has partnered with Yoga Therapy College, an affiliate of Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT), to offer a comprehensive certification to teaching yoga, with a therapeutic approach. The 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training will take place on 10 weekends, August 26 through December 10.
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 after class with improved brain function, lower stress levels and increased flexibility; after a few months with 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 with 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 from the techniques learned in this program.
