Holistic Yoga

RYS 500 

Yoga therapy uses a combination of yoga practices to support in the healing of particular conditions. IT is much more specialized than yoga with all sessions tailored to a specific ailment or injury. Yoga therapy assists the systems of the body to function as efficiently and effectively as possible, aiding prevention of illnesses, alleviating symptoms of existing conditions and promoting the body's own natural healing process to restore health and well being where disease is already present.

 

Holistic Approach to Yoga

  • Building upon a wellness model that integrates mind and body.
  • Examining the role of Vedic and Tantric philosophies in Western Medicine.
  • Use of the technologies of therapeutic yoga and Ayurveda.
  • Integrating asana, pranayama, meditation, guided imagery, sound and prayer for holistic healing to achieve deep relaxation, restoration, physical and emotional wellbeing.

Tools

  • Comprehensive assessment – structural (static and dynamic), Ayurvedic constitution, psychosocial
  • Individually tailored practice using yoga technologies (asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra japa, chant,
    prayer etc.)
  • Ayurvedic and yogic diet and lifestyle recommendations
  • Maintenance of individual records, practices and processes

Strategies

  • Selected readings
  • Didactic experiences
  • Guided practices
  • Hand-on experience
  • Take-home case studies, evaluation, presentation

RYS 200

 Location: TBA

 

 

This Yoga Alliance-required course is 200 hours achieved through two modules, which are each 9 days of intensive training. It will cover all areas of anatomy, physiology, subtle anatomy, meditation, practice, physical adjustments, sequencing, nutrition, and marketing that are necessary to safely and effectively teach yoga to others.

Though we will thoroughly cover the "nuts and bolts" of the physical practice of Yoga-asana, we will also explore extensively the mental and philosophical aspects of the entire practice using traditional ashtanta 8 limbs of yoga and an eclectic selection of readings as our springboard for discussion.

 

Teacher training is not just for those looking to teach yoga as a career or side job. It is an incredibly valuable experience to those who are simply looking to add some deeper layers to their practice.
