Yogatherapy Teacher Training

March 2018

Wed. 7-9 PM & Fri. 7-9 PM

Yogatherapy (or Yoga Chikitsa) is spiritual therapy that uses yoga techniques.

There are four main kinds of Yogatherapy:

– Yogatherapy classes that mobilize the spine and joints, stretch and relax muscular tensions that cause discomfort. Here there are specialized exercises to reduce individual scoliosis and lordosis of the spine.

– Assisted Stretching where the subject relaxes completely on the mat, and the Yogatherapist assists his or her limbs into partial yoga postures for the stretching of muscular tensions, bringing circulation to joints, increasing flexibility, producing a feeling of relief, satisfaction, and pleasure.

– Abhyanga from Ayurveda is an ancient Indian science of health that works side by side with therapeutic yoga. It is a series of strokes for the back, belly, arms, legs, hands, feet, neck, and head that unblock muscular contractions, and circulate energy through all the energy centers.  These strokes have been passed down in person through a lineage (an uninterrupted line of masters that goes back thousands of years).

Ratnachikitsa or Gem stone therapy for harmonizing of subtle body. Correct location, gem type, and placement technique.
