Spanda® Yoga Movement Therapy is focused on developing each yoga therapist’s skill, insight, and knowledge in addressing the unique pattern of concerns of individuals who find their way into this sacred relationship. As a Spanda® Yoga Movement Therapist you’ll design and sensitively implement elegant therapeutic strategies to meet the many challenges of being human.

Spanda® Yoga Movement Therapy is not:
  • a hodgepodge of workshops of potentially contradictory “yoga for…” segments by sundry presenters
  • offered by yoga teachers with little-to-no clinical experience
  • based on a smattering of popularist yoga practices that lack depth
  • one-size-fits-all protocols for diseases
Spanda® Yoga Movement Therapy is:
  • Integrative. Each aspect of training is presented with the whole in mind and is carefully orchestrated to interweave continuously deepening levels of knowledge, understanding, and proficiency.
  • Taught by Clinically Experienced Experts. Unlike other programs, every member of our unparalleled faculty is an expert with decades of therapeutic practice in their field. Our faculty consists of yogis whose lives have been devoted to alleviating others’ suffering.
  • Comprehensive. Coursework covers Eastern and Western models of health, disease, and healing at functional, structural, mental-psychological, energetic, and spiritual levels. Practical application arises from practice in clinical use for the past thirty-two years.
  • Visionary. Trainees develop reliable observation skills using multiple channels of perception that mature sensitivities befitting yogic adepts. These skills are used to treat each person as an individual.
  • Informed by Western Medicine. Grounding in Western biomedical research and practice gives ability to understand clients’ concerns through the eyes of this perspective and work seamlessly with mainstream healthcare.
  • Rooted in Authentic Yoga. This training arises out of the Himalayan Institute’s tradition, Samaya Sri Vidya, with complementarity in traditional kundalini vidya.
