"These two words are synonymous in my mind: Yoga Therapeutics. Where does one start and the other end? This course of study was born from repeated questions from 200-hour trainees and yogis who instinctively know the healing power of yoga and desire a much deeper knowledge base as to why and how the marriage works!"

This will be Harvey’s fifth year offering this training due to high interest! We have received great feedback from past students to improve this craft, and are ready for you to begin your therapeutic journey in 2019. This training will be a total of 150 hours, 115 contact hours and 35 non-contact hours for self-study over a spread of five months to accommodate the busy lives we lead! This course will add many of the missing and key elements to the yoga puzzle to deepen the understanding of how to use yoga as a healing modality. The teachings will be based on a sound scientific/therapeutic rationale with intuitive and artful overtones.

This training will be hosted in classic "salon-style," a conversational gathering inspired by your teacher where spirited discussion amongst your peers is deeply encouraged! Course work will be both didactic and experiential. We will study functional anatomy and biomechanics of the human body. We will learn about human physiology—how each system in the body works and how inter-related these systems are. Additionally, we will come to understand how to influence the healing of the body and mind to maintain or reach a level of homeostasis in our sacred vessel.

We will observe movement and alignment in our own bodies and have the opportunity to evaluate, treat and design a yoga-based exercise program for individuals from our community who will be part of our course of study!

Note: Upon completion of your registration, if you are interested, please send a note to Harvey on why you are interested and what you plan to do with the knowledge gained at yoga@redhawkpt.com.
