The respective professional certificate programs prepare Yoga instructors with practices for people with health challenges not normally met in a group class. These challenges can be physical, mental or emotional. Yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs.
