Network Yoga Therapy

This training and expertise platform was founded in 2010 by Anneke Sips, a passionate psychiatric nurse thinking: What if there was no stigma on mental health? What if we would have multi disciplinary yoga teams in psychiatry? What if we all had the courage to raise our voice?


And now — in 2019 — we are an innovative international network of professionals who connect yoga, science and (mental) health. We design and develop yoga (therapy) ecosystems within institutions, hospitals and companies where staff and clients are supported with the right yoga interventions and research. 


We believe that awareness, courage and self leadership lift us as a collective to a higher level, which help us make better decisions for the world and leave a positive footprint for the next generation. The method of yoga is great to support this movement.

Our most important activities are:


  • Training and expertise platform — online and in person consultancy
  • 'Svastha Yoga and Ayurveda' yoga teacher,- and therapist trainings
  • 'Be Your Own Therapist' online program
  • The Yoga Therapy Conference in Amsterdam
  • Yoga & Yoga Therapy (research) project development and execution

YOGA OR YOGA THERAPY?

A general public yoga class can certainly ease everyday aches, pains, and mood complaints. But a yoga therapy session goes further because it is tailored to the individual.

Yoga is about what we do, or not do, with our lives, finding our own life philosophy that leads to a state of optimal balance.

It offers tools to practice, to embody our own philosophy. It’s about moving toward mental and physical wellness and mindful presence over time.

WHY WE NEED A NETWORK?

We believe that yoga, used as therapy, backed by modern science and research, can enhance complex systems, including our schools,- and healthcare systems.

But, we can never do this alone.

We believe, that a network of passionate and engaged individuals, who support each other, is a catalyst for positive change and innovation in the field of yoga therapy.
