Deal with the Body. Heal with the Mind | Fundamental Principles of Yoga Therapy
Yoga has been a system of health and healing for centuries. Its rich approach combined with its simplicity in implementation has sustained its role in nourishing people for generations. It views the human system as a holistic entity and hence approaches health and well being too from this perspective and offers many tools in the healing process. Some of the most profound tools in Yoga include conscious breathing regulation, meditation, life-style changes, visualizations, use of vocal sounds and food specifications among many others. This makes the healing process very comprehensive and extremely specific to the individual.
Yoga therapy also empowers people in the healing process and the careseeker is actively engaged in the path to well-being and is primarily responsible for his/her recovery. The role of the teacher becomes to act as a mere guide in directing the student to the tools for recovery and teaching the right way to implement them. Thus the healing comes from within the student, rather than from the outside. This powerful system has helped many millions of care seekers to find holistic solutions to address a range of health concerns.
This great art was perfected and presented by T Krishnamacharya, one of the most important yogis of our modern times. It was continued and shared around the world by his son and most prominent student TKV Desikachar. Both of them healed and revived many people from all kinds of problems through this holistic, yet simple approach. Their work is now being carried on Dr. Kausthub Desikachar, co-founder and chief Yoga Therapist of the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation.
This practical seminar will explore the foundational principles of Yoga Therapy, from its classical Yogic roots. It will present Yoga’s framework of understanding and observing the human body in a holistic manner, the models of Yoga Therapy presented in the classical texts, as well as fundamental principles on choosing an appropriate treatment strategy. The weekend immersion will include both theoretical presentations, workshops on observation, as well as energizing practices encompassing the multi-dimensional tools of Yoga. This exclusive seminar is open to all, and will be particularly suitable for those who wish to dive deep into the authentic form of Yoga Therapy, and its practical implementation as a complimentary health care paradigm. It is strongly advised to book early to secure your spot.
