The BMBI Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training Program provides a comprehensive education in Hatha yoga teaching, which includes all eight limbs of yoga. It is accredited by Yoga Alliance and our school is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). This program will prepare you to offer a life-changing and deeply empowering instruction with skills to facilitate group sessions using our ten themes of transformation. Our program is for practitioners serious about initiating change in their life and in the world.
Our program is in alignment with the latest studies in neuroscience and the mind-body connection. When we practice focusing our attention on the breath and internal bodily sensations, it changes our brain, strengthening the experiential attention neural pathway. In this way, perceptual experiences are heightened and it becomes easier for us to access these pathways as we integrate this attention to internal experience into our daily lives.
Our yoga teacher training is rooted in embodiment and empowerment. Our graduates are yoga educators, facilitators of a process rather than a prescription. We believe each person knows what is most appropriate and help people draw out what is already inside. We want to help people become genuine, empowered, embodied and live in their true nature. Because of this our training includes curriculum in inclusivity.
The foundation of our program is meant to guide you toward facilitating an intentional, transformational and mindful yoga practice that fosters a deeper connection to the subtle body. You can either begin a therapeutic yoga practice or add to your existing professional qualifications. If you are already a mental health or wellness professional, you will gain an understanding of how to integrate this proven, mind-body, yoga-based process with your clientele.
Our teacher training uniquely includes Trauma-Informed training. This certification is not found at any other local yoga teacher training. These protocols are currently being utilized in private practices, hospitals, wellness centers, other health care facilities, prisons, addiction centers, and schools, both as stand-alone programs and as a complementary modality.
This program is for those who want to use yoga in a field that helps people change themselves for the better and become empowered to live more authentic and meaningful lives. Our program is fully accredited by Yoga Alliance. Graduates will be trained to work with trauma, PTSD, ADHD and children, special needs, anxiety and depression, special populations, empowerment, and life enhancement.
****** After graduation you are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT 200.
What People Say
This teacher training is like no other. It offers an approach to yoga classes that cater to an under-served population in our community and those that have or are experiencing trauma. Raechel and Betsy bring an abundance of experience, wisdom, and an authenticity to this program that is far beyond my expectations.
I was hoping to add tools to my teaching toolbox and become trauma-informed. I did not expect the positive transformation it would bring to my whole life. I have been a dedicated yoga practitioner for 22 years. This training made space for me to go all the way to the center of myself in a way that I had never experienced before.
This training went above and beyond my expectations. Raechel and Betsy do a lovely job of combining structure with creative freedom. The focus on embodied experience was amazing and changed my view on what yoga can be for someone. I feel this training gave me the tools for self compassion and changed me as a person.
