The Art of Healing: Yoga Therapy | Trunk, Shoulders, and Skull | Online Training
We are delighted to announce that we have reconfigured our Art of Healing course into an on-line format that you can attend directly from your living room. The Art of Healing: Yoga Therapy is an in-depth training on how to modify the poses to address the limitations of your students. Our aim is to review the most common afflictions that a teacher will be confronted with in the classroom namely lower back pain, knee pain, sciatic pain, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, GI tract dysfunction, migraines, insomnia, cancer, and surgery.
The course now has Live Zoom meetings, recorded material, readings, and practicum work rolled out onto the online platform. The big score is that you will have access to all the course materials including Tias and Surya’s notes on the therapeutic work for all time. And like in the live groups, each of you will have the opportunity to get to know one another via the Zoom sharing, discussions, practice pods, and review. The course is streamlined into two sections.
Trunk, Shoulders, and Skull
Aligning the neck, skull, and shoulders is tricky, for the upper structures of the body are most prone to misalignment. At this time of the pandemic, all structures close to the brain are subject to clenching and holding due to anxiety, stress, and sleeplessness. In this immersion we focus on jaw strain, shoulder imbalance, and neck strain. You will learn the essential SATYA movements and asanas to stabilize the hands, wrists, shoulder girdle, and neck using Prajna Yoga’s twelve most therapeutic poses. In meditation practice we weave in techniques to reduce stress and anxiety that accumulate in the upper trunk. Additionally, we cover the emotional and psychological issues that cause strain and blockage in the shoulders and neck. This course includes a short practicum to apply the work to your students, clients or family members.
Each day includes meditation, anatomical study, demonstration, and Live Zoom practice.
