Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT
This course offers a special opportunity for students to learn directly from Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT and to benefit from her years of experience and passionate approach to health and Yoga Therapy.
Montserrat G. Mukherjee, IAYT-certified Yoga Therapist, graduated from the Yoga Biomedical Trust & Yoga Campus nearly 20 years ago, in a pioneer certification founded by Dr Robin Monro, which integrated medical studies with Yoga.
Montserrat G. Mukherjee founded The Yoga Therapy Institute in February 2017. The first programme began with 5 students from the Netherlands and it has since grown into an international school with a team of certified and experienced teachers and hundreds of students from all over the world. The Yoga Therapy Institute offers the first Yoga Therapy Diploma Course 875-Hours in Europe, which is accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
Montserrat is originally from Madrid and has traveled the world and has lived in London, New York and is finally settled in Amsterdam, although she still considers herself a citizen of the world and continues to travel as often as possible.
Montserrat has worked with hundreds of clients from a wide range of physical health issues. She applies Yoga Therapy as a complementary therapy to conventional medicine, including:
- Heart disease
- Degenerative diseases
- Cancer, with a special focus on women with breast cancer
- Herniated discs and lower back pain *trained in the CALBA method by Dr Robin Monro
- Auto-immune disease
- Musculoskeletal injures
- Emotional mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression
- Women’s wellness issues
The effects of her work speak for themselves, as 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 for others. No one is excluded from her home-made ginger teas with honey and snacks. She loves cooking and her home 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 90 minutes at my studio. Of course, everyone feels at some point that they need help or guidance outside of ‘working hours’ and so, I like my students and clients to feel that there is a door open, whenever they need it.”
“Just like everyone else, I was not born with a life manual under my arm, I learn along the way and I do the best I can, every day of my life.
I am lucky to have grown up within a large, humble Spanish family and to have learned directly from the wisdom and warmth of the older members of our family. This heritage, added to the many difficulties experienced whilst travelling, my own journey from a below-the-poverty-line childhood and the extraordinary people I have met on the way, have undoubtedly given me an understanding of the human condition.”
Montserrat G. Mukherjee & THE YOGA THERAPY INSTITUTE
Montserrat G. Mukherjee founded The Yoga Therapy Institute in February 2017, in Amsterdam.
“I love what I do, and I have a lot to be thankful for. I was blessed to learn from a pioneering Yoga Therapy diploma course in London, with a strong medical base. This gave me the solid foundation I needed to feel confident to work with clients, even those with the most difficult health conditions.
At The Yoga Therapy Institute, we follow the lines of study from all classic and modern traditions. We nurture a 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 safety and respect form the core of this wonderful work.
At The Yoga Therapy Institute, we aim to offer Yoga Therapy Diploma Courses with the highest standards in the world.
My own personal mission? To keep on learning and to dedicate my life to training professional and compassionate Yoga Therapists who can make a real difference to people’s lives and their health.”
