A teacher from 7th grade had her class do yoga and at the end during the lying still moment and she had an Interoception feeling that she never felt before. In fact some of the poses Kristine still uses today. Then she really experienced Yoga again in 1989 during her Masters Degree in Literature and went to a gym and an Indian Swami with a long beard, baggy pants and all that taught it. During her late 20’s she spent a few years in Japan and 1 year in India and Nepal and studied very traditional Yoga.
Yoga teacher is 200 hours of training, but she would prefer the RWT500 which means you trained for 500 hours or even better the eRWT 3000 (you actually have taught for 3000 hours) and the best is the newest designation CIAYT Certified International Association of Yoga Therapist (rigorous organization of 40% medical professions and 60% Yoga Instructors and others).
Those are the best 3 classifications of a yoga instructor and are what a Doctor should be looking for if they refer a patient for yoga therapy. It’s not enough to just send the patient over to the local gym.
Mind, Body, Spirit is part of Yoga and there are 5000 studies on Yoga Therapy. Mindful movement, breathing practices, and meditation are all part of yoga and helps people from dis-ease to ease to potential and thriving. So it’s not just about poses.
