Our first yoga therapy student interns are now scheduling appointments to see clients at the MUIH Natural Care Center. Yoga therapy is a rapidly growing healing discipline that is effective for a wide range of physical and emotional challenges. You likely know how effective a yoga practice can be – imagine the possibilities of using yoga therapy to heal!

“The practice of yoga therapy creates the possibility for integration allowing mind, body, and spirit to come into alignment and facilitate healing on many levels. I leave the clinic with a greater sense of well-being and the inspiration to celebrate and be present to every moment.” – Yoga Therapy Client

Yoga therapists use the tools and practices of yoga to empower clients toward improved health and well being through the use of postures, breathing practices, meditation, and lifestyle. Yoga therapists understand the multidimensional nature of the individual and work from the premise that the physical, energy, emotional, and spiritual levels are fully integrated and inter-related. In yoga therapy the ancient wisdom, tools, and techniques of yoga combined with traditional and contemporary best practices are adapted to each individual’s unique situation and health challenge with the goal of helping clients improve, maintain and optimize health.

Because this service is part of a university clinical rotation, we are able to offer care at very affordable rates. We use a team care approach in which one or two student interns and a faculty supervisor tend every client – a model that has been tremendously successful for our other clinical disciplines.          

“I’m thrilled to report that every client seen by our yoga therapy student interns, with absolutely no exceptions, reported immediate and meaningful relief from myriad acute and chronic symptoms. And, to continue their progress, every client left the Natural Care Center with a ‘prescription’ for a continued yoga therapy practice they can do at home. These results demonstrate the exceptional skill of our graduate students and the power of this discipline.” – Marlysa Sullivan, M.P.T., e-RYT 500, lead clinic supervisor
