Program

Yoga as therapy and support to doctors
Yoga therapy is the adaptation of yoga to a particular set of people - those with health problems. Although general yoga classes can often help resolve mild health problems, they may be ineffective for serious conditions, for example, coronary heart diseases, management of diabetes, hypertensive clients, obesity, and all the other common disorders, for example, hormone imbalance and sleeping disorder.

Yoga therapy tailors yoga to individuals, taking into account their medical condition, constitution, and life situation. Despite being specialized, yoga therapy retains the basic principles and aims of yoga. Therapy yoga is based on the holistic concept and therefore, includes a balanced set of practices that calms and vitalizes the mind and body, as well as acting on diseased parts.

The following are aspects of the topics that you will cover during this yoga therapy program:

  • Understanding the connection between yoga and therapy
  • Understanding the difference between a yoga class and the therapeutic approach
  • Analyze the holistic approach to balance the physical and mental
  • Study of anatomy within the asanas
  • Study the causes of the sickness and a program for supporting the healing process, for example, heart diseases, diabetes, hypertensive diseases, obesity, common disorders such as hormone imbalance, sleep disorders, burnout
  • Study the importance of nutrition, elements, doshas, gunas, and marmas points in the science of living
  • Learn the importance of chakras, koshas, and prana in yoga science
  • Learn the therapeutic benefit of mantras
  • Learn Yoga Nidra and the benefit of meditation and visualization

Edward Bach's healing methods
In 1930, the English physician, Dr Edward Bach (bacteriologist and surgeon) found the 38 Dr Bach flowers, which represent a closed healing system and work on the basis of moods and emotions. Learning the theory and practical examples will show how Dr Bach's flower remedy method reverses a negative feeling into a positive feeling. Negative feelings existing increased above normal and that exist too long are the cause of most of today's diseases, pain, and unnecessary stress.

Do not feel to be afraid or insecure, have again the interest in the here and now, no longer feeling of loneliness, no longer be vulnerable to changes in life, no more despair, or unnecessarily worry about others. Enjoy life without being blocked by negative feelings. Together with your Dr Bach practitioner, you will work out your individual Bach flower combination.
