Event Details

Even before social distancing there was a solid progression where yoga therapy and other well-being disciplines were offering sessions online.

During social distancing it is imperative sessions are done virtually, but it is likely that things will not return to their former states. Therefore, the Minded Institute is helping to support yoga therapist in how to offer effective yoga therapy sessions online.

We are thrilled that Dr. Amy Wheeler the former President of The Board of Directors of The International Association of Yoga Therapists will be helping us launch this service.

What to Expect:

  • The session will take place via zoom and all participants will receive a link. Participants will turn off their cameras during the session and watch Amy work with the client
  • The session is 1 hour and 45 minutes. The first hour is silent observation. After the observation the client will depart and participants will debrief with Amy for 30 minutes.
  • In the last 15 minutes Amy will reflect on the emerging ethical guidance related to yoga therapy and online sessions.

Who Should Attend:

  • Yoga therapists
  • Trainee Yoga Therapists
  • Yoga Professionals interested in beginning a career in Yoga Therapy
