With the yoga therapy knowledge graduates will feel confident to tailor classes for ‘digestion’ ‘back pain’ and so on. 

Emphasis is on getting prana (energy) to flow while doing the poses, to understand their therapeutic benefits and for each person to practice with enjoyment, correct breathing, correct alignment and sincerity: Ultimately harmonizing mind, body and energy.
