Lifeologie Institute School for Psychotherapeutic Yoga

yoga for your brain

At the LISPY school (Lifeologie Institute School for Psychotherapeutic Yoga), we offer psychotherapeutic yoga teacher training and other trainings and events for therapists, yogis and others interested in psychotherapeutic yoga — yoga for your brain. LISPY’s yoga teacher training and events focus on the unique field of psychotherapeutic yoga. Psychotherapeutic yoga differs from traditional yoga training in that it addresses psychological and mental health issues with specific protocols designed to benefit individuals with a number of mental, emotional and physical concerns.  LISPY offers an integrated approach to optimal health!

The yoga therapy components of LISPY’s psychotherapeutic yoga training are based on our credentialing standards of ACA, Texas Department of State Health Services, and IAYT, not derived from our RYS status with Yoga Alliance.

LISPY teacher training programs

200-hour Yoga Training

At the LISPY school’s 200 hr yoga teacher training, you will begin to integrate western medicine concepts such as neurobiology with traditional yogic concepts and techniques, with a view toward addressing a number of mental and emotional concerns. 

NOTE: LISPY’s 200 hour training is not appropriate preparation for teaching “gym yoga.”  This training is an introduction to the merging of psychology, neurobiology and yoga and Ayurvedic principals, with a heavy emphasis on psychotherapeutic application

At the LISPY school, you will learn to use eastern and western medicine con- cepts, combined with specifically targeted yogic concepts and techniques to ad- dress a number of mental and emotional concerns, such as addiction or sub- stance abuse, ADHD, anger management, anxiety, cutting & self-harm, depression, eating disorders, grief & loss recovery, insomnia, performance anxiety, PTSD and trauma recovery, stress management, trichotillomania & body picking.

20 hour weekend intensives also available.
