Hi there,

My introduction to yoga therapy course arrived on Saturday. I'm not sure i will be able to finish it in 100 hours (125-150 hours seems possible). I imagine Paulji will do a survey to get feedback from graduates as to how long it took to complete.

The course is absolutely good material for yoga teacher who is doing continuing education in the basic fundamentals of yoga therapy. You better be a certified teacher or have a strong back ground in anatomy and/or medicine for this course. No matter what your background is it will be a challenge. But this is exactly what I was looking for.

I'm completely excited to be studying new material in a field with so much demand. After teaching classes, it seemed like every student with a pain and ache came out of the woodwork. I studied every random ailment my students had and helped everyone I could. Some of the fitness yoga teachers began to send their less than ideal students to me.

This is also an educational experience because fitness yoga teachers have their own niche. There is nothing wrong with it, but you must be a specific level of fitness to stay with these teachers. They don't want to hear about student problems, aches, and pains.

It has made for a mutual referral system. When I meet a student who wants to be pushed I refer them to one of three fitness yoga teachers that i network with. In return, they refer students with aches and pains to me. This is a perfect referral system because students receive the services they demand.
