Hatha Yoga and BodyMind Therapy Course
Ayurveda Yoga's Healing Alchemy Leadership Program is a 7 month course designed to take you deeper into the world of healing arts. Taking classic texts and principles we study the meaning of yoga, the way to practice yoga, and the way to take these classic concepts and apply them to our modern lives.
With sincere practice and support from the teachers, students in this course get the courage and leadership ability to get what they want out of life. Such as improving their work life, finding healing from mental and physical trauma or finding happiness in relationships.
One focus of this course is Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga consists of the first 4 of Patanjali's 8 limbs of Ashtanga yoga and include: Yama (restraints), Niyama (observances), Asana (posture) and Pranayama (breath work). We study and practice the meaning of these principles and how to practically use and safely do them. As we do so it is encouraged to ask questions and share about your experiences in class.
Those interested in guiding and assisting yoga classes will be given the space and opportunity to do so.
If there are any posture, breathing and/or meditation techniques that you have questions about, this is the best place to get deeper understanding through studying with the teachers.
Another focus of this course is Bodymind Therapy.
Bodymind Therapy explores the connection between the body and the mind. In yoga there are 5 layers (Koshas) to the body and we study about how each layer connects, overlaps and is ultimately one. Through approaching the layers individually, for example the physical body or the energy body, we can allow our inner doctor to do what it needs for holistic healing. Through the integral approach of Bodymind therapy, we can get better understanding of our whole being.
We use therapies including, but not limited to Zen Counseling, Laughing/Crying/Dancing Meditation, Family Constellation, Social Meditations and, of course, asana and breathing are also used therapeutically. We incorporate any form of therapy that leads to transformation.
Participating and sharing a lot is the best way to get the most out of this course. This course is made by the members of each semester.
