the yoga therapy institute

Yoga Therapy is the practical application of Yoga principles and tools for the prevention, management and treatment of physical and mind health conditions, adapted to the individual. Although Yoga Therapy is generally practiced one-on-one, research shows highly effective results on groups of students for the management of stress, anxiety and mild sleep problems.

Yoga Fest Studio and The Yoga Therapy Institute, in their unique collaboration, bring you these exceptional classes to make Yoga Therapy accessible for everyone, under the experience and care of internationally qualified and certified yoga therapists.

The classes incorporate therapeutic dynamic movements with the breath, simple Asanas, breathing techniques and adaptations of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Yoga philosophy and elements of Yoga Therapy through the Eight Limbs of Yoga and the Kosha System will also be introduced to the students through the sessions.

The purpose of these classes is to gently integrate Yoga Therapy practical tools and new inspiration in the students’ own way of life, so each can adapt them to their own needs. This is done in a safe, friendly and approachable manner, a distinctive signature of The Yoga Therapy Institute’s teaching philosophy.

Important: If you suffer from any serious health conditions, or you would simply like to share any health information with the yoga therapists before your class, please contact Montserrat and Marleen at
