The LISPY School’s 200-hour RYT focuses on the unique field of psychotherapeutic yoga – yoga for your brain.
This yoga training integrates western medicine knowledge with traditional yogic techniques, to give mental health clinicians a next-level skillset for addressing various mental and emotional concerns.
NOTE: The 200-hour psychotherapeutic yoga training is not appropriate preparation for teaching fitness yoga or “gym yoga", nor is it meant to qualify anyone to practice as a mental health clinician. This training is an introduction to how the combination of psychology, neurobiology, yoga and Ayurvedic principals can provide a mind-body healing approach in clinical settings.
LISPY programming explores how the use of yoga and yogic principles can address addiction, substance abuse, ADHD, anger management, anxiety, self-harm, depression, eating disorders, grief, insomnia, PTSD, trauma recovery, stress management, and other mental health concerns.
The yoga therapy components of LISPY’s psychotherapeutic yoga training are not derived from our RYS status with Yoga Alliance.
Disclaimer: LISPY’s psychotherapeutic yoga training does not qualify graduates to diagnose or treat mental illness, nor practice as a licensed mental health professional.
Prerequisite: Education in the mental health industry is required to enroll in the LISPY 200
