Be a Case Study

Since June 2020, I am doing an 800-hour Yoga Therapy training with the Yoga Therapy Institute to become a certified yoga therapist. I hope to finish this training before summer 2022. 

As part of the training I am required* to do so called ’case studies’ with clients having some kind of health issue(s) related to the modules, such as asthma, high blood pressure, herniated disc, burnout, and the list goes on (more examples further down).

For each of the seven modules connected to the various ‘systems’ in the human body I am required to complete three case studies, meaning all-in-all 21 case studies.

Maybe you, or someone you know, might be interested to work together with me as a case study.

I offer a complimentary 15-20 min phone call if you are curious to find out more about what it means, and/or if you are wondering if this is something for you.

How many sessions is a ‘case study’?
We ’meet’ for 5 sessions** (which is the requirement for a case study) – each session is 75-90 min. The sessions would be either in-person at my location here in Rotterdam or online through zoom. 

1st session : a complete intake focusing on all of you 
2nd session : we start moving to see how your physical body is doing 
Session 3-5 : tailored & targeted to your needs & current situation

What is the price?
So far in the Netherlands yoga therapy is not part of the (health)-insurance plan. Hopefully it will come soon. Normally seeing a certified yoga therapist cost somewhere in the range of 70-120 € per session depending on the experience of the yoga therapist. 

As I am still in training to become a yoga therapist (to read more about my background click here) I am applying discounted rates to these case studies. My first 10 case studies were super heavily discounted. The next 10 only heavily discounted, etc.

I am currently open to book for case study #21

The price for a case study (5 sessions):
Case Study #1-10 : 25 € per session – no longer available
Case Study #11-20 : 30 € per session – no longer available
Case Study #21-30 : 35 € per session – booking

*These case studies will be documented and handed in to my mentor, supervising my training.

**Of course if you want to continue after the sessions part of the ’case study package’ that is possible – that will be outside the case study concept, and different rate will most likely apply.

*At this moment I have filled the quota of the required three case studies for the Muscular Skeletal & Lower Back Module. Please note that I continue to accept new clients with issues in this category but that will be outside the scope of ‘case studies’.
