Our Growing Family of CYN's
Certified YogaNurses®
Handpicked Holistic Nurses on a Mission
To Transcend the Current State of Nursing & Health Care .

The Yoganurse Academy has over the years carefully selected and trained excellent nurses with a passion for integrating therapeutic yoga and medicine. Their mission is to releive suffering and create a more conscious, healthful and peaceful lifestyle for healthcare professionals and patients alike. Each of our CYN’s are authorized to facilitate the YogaNurse Model of Care and the YogaNursing process and to teach our official trademarked ™ YogaNurse® program.

With rising healthcare costs, because of chronic illness, stress, accidents, absenteeism and burnout, people are in need of solutions. Many of our CYN’s work with nurses and other professionals either one-on-one or in large groups and communities such as hospitals, churches, colleges, government and businesses with the aim to provide solutions for wellness in the workplace. Combined with their own unique skillsets, every CYN on our list has something special to offer. We hold each of them in high esteem and trust them fully to deliver quality care for your individual needs or the needs of your community.
