Island Yoga Vista is well established in the blending of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy, with 17 years of service offering Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy programs and sessions as well as teaching classical yoga classes. The purpose of this training is to make this broader perspective of yoga available through a traditional apprenticeship style of training., thereby expanding this ancient knowledge to people who may not be able to attend a regular yoga class for various reasons.
This program grew out of an inspired vision based on trainings in Integrative Yoga Therapy, Satyananda Yoga and Chakrapani Ayurveda to create a unique offering focused on equipping individuals thoroughly with these timeless skills and offering lifelong mentorship and support. It began with a group of 6 apprentices all committed to serving their local communities as well as continuing their own evolutionary growth under the guidance of Sandra Sagarmurti Shotton.
Sandra has been a member of the Yoga Alliance and the International Association of Yoga Therapists since 1997. Island Yoga Vista is a Member School of the IAYT and fully supports the newest educational standards for Yoga Therapists. The process is underway for IYV to be reviewed as an accredited school.
