October 2024


Senior Yoga Teacher Kathy Ran is excited to introduce the 100 hour Therapeutic Yoga module designed for yoga teachers and yoga enthusiasts. Therapeutic Yoga - 100 hour Certification is approved by the Yoga Alliance and be used towards 500 hour advanced yoga teacher status.  

In today’s busy world yoga is more important than ever and is increasingly adopted by many as a way to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It is our turn as educated yoga teachers to help guide our students to safely and effectively heal the body, mind and spirit. 

This unique course has been designed to focus on applying a holistic approach to the teaching of yoga and something we all seek: to create a healthy mind and body to encourage positive changes. 

Non teachers with more than 3 years’ experience are welcome to apply to deepen their own yoga practice.

Therapeutic Yoga is a comprehensive system of restorative yoga - this includes gentle yoga asanas, breath awareness, and guided meditation specifically designed to enhance the body’s own capacity to heal.  Using readily available props such as bolsters and blankets to gently support the body, the benefits of Therapeutic Yoga are accessible even to those recovering from injury or illness.

The course will focus on breath work, guided meditation and hands-on healing applied together to balance the body and ease the mind.

In addition to yoga teachers, our course is ideal for professionals including nurses, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and other healthcare professionals. Importantly, the course and techniques taught are applicable to a variety of patient care services.

"I have just completed my teacher training with Kathy and Yoga University. All can I say is what a journey, it has been amazing from start to finish, and set me up to teach in the real world from the off. Kathy has a wealth of knowledge and has shared this with us throughout the course. She is fun, inspiring and every weekend was a new adventure. I couldn’t recommend the training enough and cannot wait for my next one!


"Embarking on the teacher training course was a very big decision for me to make. The time was right in my life and I feel very lucky to have made this life changing journey from enthusiastic yogi and yoga teacher , Kathy Ran. Kathy has been much more than a yoga teacher, she has been a mentor and helped me to see my life much clearer. I've learned skills for on and off the mat that I will hold dear for always. Kathy has a wonderful nonthreatening, non invasive way of getting to know all her students and encourages the group to grow together , building lifelong friendships.
The environment we worked in every week was very inspiring and I felt I grew in practise and was allowed to become myself again.
It was a treat and privilege to take 6 months out and play. What a wonderful course. Thank you Kathy!"


"I cannot recommend this yoga course more. It is not so much a course, more a personal journey. Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned veteran. It's truly been one of the most inspirational thing I have done for myself in years. Big love and Namaste".
