Therapeutic Yoga Intensive: Calgary October 20-25th 2018


SKU: 111601 Category:


Dates: Oct 20 to 25th, 2018

I have offered and refined this program over the last 14 years. It remains one of the best foundational programs for becoming a truly spectacular yoga therapist. What do I mean by spectacular? Being present so that you can truly be with the person who is in front of you, and not having to rely on the latest trend, or research paper to choose movements, breathing and stillness techniques.

Yes, trends and research are interesting and important, but the magic happens when you are truly with your client. The participants who have taken this program are amazed at how being present really is the missing link – not only in their ability to help someone get well but to do so consistently and not burn out. AND, to help their own self heal and get well again.

This program is for you if you believe that healing is possible. You want a no fuss, candid and truly loving approach to being real about “what is”; to dig in and explore yourself in movement, breath and stillness. You know that your level of awareness, connection and integration has a direct impact on your results with your clients. You recognize you can’t ask a client to do what you aren’t willing to do for yourself. You understand that if pain can change, pain can actually change.

This program is not for you if you are looking for a quick “fix it”, in the form of “when you see this, do that” black-and-white templates. Also, some people don’t recognize there is magic in healing and would prefer a “power over” approach, which suggests they know more than their clients. They won’t enjoy this experience.
Group size is limited to 18 people. Payment plans are available.

Reviews of the Therapeutic Yoga Intensive

“. . . I was out of pain, off all medications.”
I took this training and within three months (after 8 years) of chronic pain, I was out of pain, off all medications. I used the principles outlined here and dedicated time for my personal practice and healing. And now I’ve taught these same things to my students, helping others find their way out of pain! Thank you. ~ Cathy

“What is this stuff? Magic?”
Ah-Ha! So, I’ve just returned from my client with Parkinson’s. She’s been quite depressed about how her leg is starting to drag. Today, after a while doing stuff on her back, I got her up and asked her to walk around and tell me how she felt. “Oh Gillian,” she said after a couple of minutes. “Can you see, my leg’s not dragging nearly as much!” What is this stuff? Magic? ~ Gillian

“. . .never before have I felt I’ve learned so much”
THANK YOU for teaching me to look beyond the books and seek the knowledge that is deep within my body. I appreciated that you spent lots of time to show us what to do, how to do it and told us why we might choose one exercise and not another, but most importantly for me I appreciated that you left the discovering of what to feel or not up to us. I’ve taken lots of courses and read lots of books and watched lots of videos but never before have I felt I’ve learned so much that is right now applicable and beneficial to so many. Although I took notes and re-wrote them after the training, I feel I have a sense of what to do – what a great feeling! Thanks so much. – Maureen

What you will learn, and how you will be supported

The Therapeutic Yoga Intensive is Level 1 of Susi’s IAYT-Accredited Yoga Therapy Certification Program. Following the training you will be able to begin teaching 1:1 and small group therapeutic yoga classes.

What You Will Learn: You will learn my unique and very successful approach to yoga therapy, and how to improve physical wellbeing as it relates to biomechanical, mental and emotional patterns. You will learn my 8 Principles of Movement, and Principles of Healing that I use every day to help students reduce and get out of pain.  You will also meet and interact with graduates of this program and talk to them about the success they are achieving.

Following the Training: We will meet for 3 months of post-intensive mentoring (all online) so that you can integrate the concepts and principles, get client questions answered and continue to grow.

Bonus: During the training you will receive yoga props so you can integrate these concepts immediately into your teaching. The props include a felt pad and a spinal strip.

Oct 20th to 25th: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm each day.
