What is the difference between and Yoga teacher and a Yoga Therapist?

A Yoga therapist is an experienced and highly training yoga teacher. The training requires  a minimum of 950 hrs of training in contrast to the minimum 200 hr required for a yoga teacher

As well as meeting the requirements of a Yoga teacher, a yoga therapist has been trained in the following areas; therapeutic relationship and counselling, biomedical, psychology and mental health foundations, biomechanics, anatomy and physiology, yoga and the mind, yogic framework of health and wellness, yoga therapy tools, principles and skills for educating clients, professional practice and research.

“A Yoga therapist is an experienced yoga teacher with additional, specialised skills and knowledge in the application of yoga in a therapeutic setting. A yoga therapist draws from the principles of yoga and the full range of yoga practices, bio-medical knowledge and assessment skills to establish a professional relationship with clients in developing a self empowering therapeutic program appropriate to their needs.
