See what our graduates say about studying at Adore...
"I feel such a level of accomplishment at the end of each module. And I have to say, the zoom sessions are great. I do love face to face education but not traveling to education facilities has been quite a relief."

- Module 1: The philosophy and psychology of yoga therapy
You'll start the course with a fascinating exploration of how the key philosophical yoga texts create the foundations for Yoga Therapy. What does Patanjali say about health and healing? How do the ancient principles of classical yoga help to heal dis-ease in the modern world?
- Module 2: Yoga Therapy and the energetic body
Expand your understanding of the subtle energetic body and how to draw on ancient techniques to address healing in every domain of our being - body, mind, emotion and spirit. Through this fascinating exploration of the chakras, prana, pranayama and the nadis, you’ll discover powerful techniques that can support profound healing transformations.
- Module 3: Introduction to Trauma Sensitive yoga therapy
Trauma sensitive yoga forms the background of Adore Yoga's approach to yoga therapy. Discover how and why using a trauma sensitive approach supports students of all backgrounds to health through yoga.
- Module 4: Introduction to therapeutic assessment
Yoga Therapy views health through a set of unique lenses, informed by the practices and philsophy of yoga and Ayurveda. In this two-part workshop, you'll learn the classical approach to student assessment and how to determine what yoga techniques will support the healing of each individual. From understanding the classical yoga approach to wellbeing, through to developing an holistic intake form that incorporates every aspect of your client's body, mind and spirit, this is an essential introduction to the art of clinical assessment.
- Module 5: Sequencing in yoga therapy
In this session, we invite you to rethink everything you've learned about sequencing yoga practices! You'll learn why and how yoga therapy sequences follow a very different process to regular yoga classes. You'll also learn how to design personalised yoga sequences designed to meet the therapeutic needs of each student.
- Module 6: Introduction to Ayurveda in yoga therapy
Ayurveda, India's ancient system of healing, is at the very heart of Yoga Therapy. Immerse yourself in the wisdom of Ayurveda and discover how Ayurvedic principles infuse the practice of Yoga Therapy. Gain practical skills in Ayurvedic assessment and apply Ayurvedic techniques to support students as they heal.

Adore Yoga Graduate
"Adore Yoga is ahead of its time. Studying at Adore Yoga has given me the ability to teach real tools to my students. The ability to combine Hatha Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Meditation in a flawless way allows me to understand the real needs of my students. Had I not studied Yoga Therapy at Adore, I might have been a trained teacher that would never really teach."
