The Simply Yoga Institute® for Yoga Therapy and Holistic Health is the home of Yoga As Medicine‰ã¢ Seminars and Teacher Trainings, co-taught by
medical editor, Dr. Timothy McCall, and yoga therapist Eliana Moreira McCall, SYI's director. Timothy is the author of
Yoga as Medicine
(Bantam Books) and the co-editor of the first medical textbook of yoga therapy,
The Principles and Practice of Yoga in Health Care
(Handspring Publishing, 2016), which features Eliana's therapeutic work.
We offer individualized therapeutic yoga classes, limted to seven students, and private yoga therapy consultations and private sessions with Eliana. Classes include: Hatha Sadhana, Spinal Therapy, Prenatal and Restoratives. Yoga As Medicine seminars, limited to 15 students, include YAM Level 1, The Ayurveda of Yoga Therapy, Seeing and Understanding Bodies, Therapeutic Asana, Yoga Therapy for the Nervous System, and Therapeutic Nutrition.
Our asana is breath-centered, grounded in a strong foundation of skillful alignment, yet also energetically alive, psychologically savvy and spiritually attuned. This approach which may be supported by the sensible use of props and wall ropes, promotes mental and emotional wellbeing and helps students cope with stress and various health challenges. We also bring awareness of Ayurveda to all of our teaching and yoga therapy work. Our classes often include pranayama, chanting, and/or meditation.
The Simply Yoga Institute is in the heart of downtown Summit, less than 25 miles from NYC, 13 miles from Newark airport. It is easily walkable from the NJ Transit Summit stop, with trains directly to NYC's Penn Station.
