Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT
This course offers a special opportunity for students to learn from Montserrat G. Mukherjee’s years of experience and passionate approach to health and Yoga Therapy.
A certified IAYT Yoga Therapist, Montserrat graduated at the Yoga Biomedical Trust & Yoga Campus, 12 years ago, in a pioneer certification which integrated medical studies with yoga, founded by Dr Robin Monro.
Based in Amsterdam, Montserrat has worked with hundreds of clients from around the world suffering from a wide range of physical health issues. She applies Yoga Therapy as a complementary therapy to conventional medicine for some of the following:
- Heart disease
- Degenerative disease
- Cancer, with special work for women with Breast Cancer
- Herniated discs and lower back pain.
- Auto-immune disease
- Muscular-Skeletal injures
- Emotional mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.
- Women’s Well issues
The effect of her work speaks for itself, as so do her clients and students. They praise her friendly and down-to-earth professionalism, as well as her in-depth medical and human knowledge.
Montserrat dedicates her life to Yoga Therapy and the care of others, and any of her clients have become her friends. No one is excluded from her well-known ginger teas with honey and home-made snacks. She loves cooking and her place always smells of something delicious ,which she loves to share!
Even when she is on holiday or on a teaching trip, her clients can contact her directly. “Health work is not exclusive to the 90mins at my studio. Of course everyone feels at some point that they need help or guidance outside of “working hours”. Life goes on outside. So I like my students and clients to feel that there is a door open whenever they need it”.
Apart from her clients, Montserrat is a loving mother, a soon-to-be wife and friend. “I am a mum who makes a lot of mistakes on the way. Unfortunately I was not born with a manual under my arm on how to be the best mum in the world. So I learn on the way and I do the best I can every day. Luckily I can count on my Spanish family, who are wise, warm, and totally crazy, to support me when I am lost.”
Montserrat & The Yoga Therapy Institute
Montserrat and her partner Emile Pochman founded The Yoga Therapy Institute in. February 2017.
“I love what I do, and I have a lot to be thankful for. I was lucky to study in a pioneer Yoga Therapy Diploma course in London with a strong medical base. This gave me the foundation I needed to feel confident to work with clients even in the most difficult health conditions.
At the Yoga Therapy Institute, we follow the lines of study from all classic and modern traditions. We nurture respect for others, daily practice, compassion and a sense of humour. Becoming a Yoga Therapist involves dedication and a life commitment, and I really believe that respect is the core of this wonderful work.
At the Yoga Therapy Institute, we aim to offer one of the highest standard Yoga Therapy Diploma Courses in the world.
My own personal mission? To educate and train professional and compassionate Yoga Therapists who can make a real difference in people’s lives and their health”
