Soma Yoga Therapy Training

June 8th-9th, July 27th-28th 2024

‘Soma’ refers to the word Somatics, which describes any practice that uses the mind-body connection to help you survey your internal self and listen to signals your body sends about areas of pain, discomfort, or imbalance. The Soma Yoga Therapy practices teach you how to ‘percieve your body from within’ in order to access information about the ways you hold on to your experiences in your body. Many somatic practices. including Soma Yoga Therapy, also incorporate movement to re-educate the neuromuscular system to help the body recover from imprints of stress, grief, anxiety and trauma.

Soma Yoga Therapy works with the somatic principles of listening to the body, interoception and conscious breathwork in relation to movement and yoga asana practices that move the body through the myofascial trains, in order to re-educate the neuromuscular system and help the body and mind recover from the imprints of stress and the emotions. The method also utilises biomechanics in relation to functional movement and joint stability and can also be used to work with many physical issues such as dropped arches, valgus and varus knee, hip bursitic, sacroiliitus, lateral pelvic tilt, upper cross syndrome, frozen shoulder, acromium brsitis, scoliosis etc. Depending on the issue, sometimes the practices are more functional and sometimes more somatic in nature. 


The Soma Yoga Therapy Training is designed for yoga teachers that already have a basic knowledge of yoga anatomy and alignment and want to develop their therapeutic knowledge. It will help you feel more confident as a teacher, teaching general classes and allow you to offer one-on-one yoga for specific postural issues and pain management. 

Training Format 

The training is held over two weekends; weekone one focuses on the lower body and weekend two in the upper body. It can be taken in the Yogamoves Studio in Gort or on Zoom. It is backed up with a detailed manual.
