Self-care is important because it helps the Yoga Therapist to maintain their own physical, mental, and emotional health. This is important because Yoga Therapists are often working with clients who are struggling with health challenges, and they need to be able to offer their clients support and guidance from a place of resilience and well-being.

Professional development is important because it helps the Yoga Therapist to stay up-to-date on the latest research and best practices in Yoga Therapy. This is important because the field of Yoga Therapy is constantly evolving, and Yoga Therapists need to be able to adapt their practices to meet the needs of their clients.
