Treatment-oriented Yoga Therapy

– A workshop for yoga professionals (teachers/therapists)

- Learn about indications, contraindications and limitations of yoga pertaining to different diseases/disorders.

24th - 29th February, 2020

Treating non-communicable disorders have become a daunting challenge for the modern allopathic science. Modern Allopathy has divided the human being in multiple pieces with each piece being treated by separate specialists, without knowing what is happening with the other piece(s). Yoga has a holistic approach to human life & living. If practiced properly yoga can set right the biological clock of our body, endowing us with a sound health. If at all, something wrong happens one can always add some appropriate specific Yoga practices with advantage.

In this workshop, we will communicate the salient features of basic anatomy and physiology of the human body that a Yoga therapist should know.  We will also explain what anatomical and physiological changes occur in our body due to practice of different Yogic practices, so as to help the teachers to treat such disorders/diseases.

We will also discuss basic principles in treating patients with Yoga. We will study different diseases system wise so as to perceive what part of the body is affected in a given disorder. We will also take into account as to what are the symptoms of the disorders, usual investigations done, what is the allopathic treatment and also if we can give certain appropriately specific disease wise Yogic practices to these patient.

It is our prime duty to make you understand the principles of Yoga as Therapy and its limitations, so as to know the objective nature of yoga.
