Master of Science in Yoga Therapy*
Yoga is one of the nation’s leading natural therapies used by millions of Americans to address chronic and acute conditions, and to promote a lifetime of health and well-being. As the country continues to experience spiraling disease rates and healthcare costs, more Americans will turn to yoga therapy as a proven and cost-effective model for relief. In fact, yoga saw a 20 percent increase in use among adults and children during the previous decade, and those health trends are expected to continue.
Yoga therapy practitioners are playing a primary role in this national shift toward natural and integrative healthcare. Using an advanced mind-body approach, these professionals apply the teachings and practices of yoga to evaluate the needs of clients and to design balanced and effective programs tailored to address their individual health challenges.
