Pranayama and Meditation
in Yoga Therapy

This Workshop is in English with French Translation

Do you feel mentally disturbed?
Do your anxieties and stress constantly worry you?
Do you know that you may be depressed?
Do you know anyone who needs emotional support?

We are living in a fast-paced, competitive, and ambitious world. Challenges and failures often lead to frustration, frenzy, and disappointment. Our hectic lifestyles allow very little time to focus on fitness. We forget that mental wellbeing is as important as physical strength, because our mental health affects us every day. This leads to disturbance in physiological rhythm which further complicates in the form of diseases. In overcoming those diseases Yoga Therapy has a great role.

Pranayama and Meditation in Yoga Therapy combines yogic counselling with yogic practice to effectively address growing mental health issues. Yoga promotes cleansing and restoring physical and emotional wellbeing. It naturally boosts positive endorphins to help cope with depression.

Yoga techniques like pranayama (breathing techniques), and meditation are useful in removing the toxins and calms the mind. Regulated breathing and focused movements provide deep relaxation to build a soothing, positive mind-body connection. We need to understand their practices which described in the traditional texts in the authentic way.

Kaivalyadhama is one of the oldest pioneering Yoga Institutes in the world, aims to bring awareness of Yoga Therapy in effectively identifying and dealing with depressive stress and anxieties. Combined with yogic psychotherapy, this program directly also addresses issues such as difficulty in concentrating or loss of energy.

Through this Workshop one will be able to Holistically Manage
