How & Why Our Classical Lineage & Modern Innovation Methods Deliver a Unique Yoga Therapy Training Experience.
The Purpose: Founder Bob Butera’s classical lineage is fused with wisdom with modern lifestyle innovations, developed during the 20 years he has been training yoga teachers. Bob’s heritage and wisdom, and years of experience, when combined with Kristen’s innovative somatic approach to adaptive yoga practices produces profound differences from other Yoga Therapy Trainings.
The YogaLife Institute program shifts the current cultural healthcare perspective from a passive disease-driven model to a more proactive model; where the client is continually engaging in the process of restoring or maintaining health. In the YogaLife Institute Model, the Yoga Therapist works with medical and healing professionals, augmenting the patient care plan with lifestyle interventions, stress management tools, movement, breathing and other practices.
In addition to Bob & Kristen Butera, the Comprehensive Yoga therapy teaching team are all practicing yoga therapists that bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the program. Everyone who teaches in the program has both designed parts of as well as taken the program. Students will appreciate having a variety of perspectives, as well as a clear and unified vision of yoga therapy.
Erin Byron, MA, and co-creator of the program brings her yoga teaching expertise, counseling and clinical skills. Staffan Elgelid, PhD offers insights from his background as Physical Therapist and Somatic Education expert. Jen Hilbert, MA marries her background in Neuroscience with her yoga teaching experience. Erika Tenenbaum & Libby Piper both ERYT500's & C-IAYT's their many years of training yoga teachers and the specializations they have developed on the way.
