If you’ve ever thought about expanding the therapeutic aspect of yoga teaching, then rest assured that there has never been a stronger public belief in practicing yoga as an effective way to restore health and vitality:
- People from all ages and walks of life are seeking a safe alternative to pharmaceutically-driven medical care.

Yoga and Osteopathy working together:
The holistic philosophy of osteopathic medicine and the age-old discipline of yoga share remarkable parallels. Just like yoga, osteopathy aims for long-term vitality. Both yoga and osteopathy emphasize the importance of the anatomical alignment of the bones and soft tissues as a significant factor in a person’s health. Increasingly, yoga practitioners worldwide are seeking training in osteopathy to complement their teaching skills and expand their practice into the field of integrative therapy.
