Yogatherapy and Ayurveda

Yogatherapy Training for Yoga Teachers
March 2015 - June 2015
$900 cash or check

SPIYS 500 for Registered Yoga Teachers and SPIYS 200 for massage therapists

Yogatherapy (or Yoga Chikitsa) is a complimentary therapy that focuses on the sentimental and emotional zone.
There are three main kinds of Yogatherapy

- Gentle and restorative 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.

- Ayurvedic Massage. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian science of health that works side by side with therapeutic yoga. The Ayurvedic Massage is called Abhyanga. It is a massage with oils and a series of strokes 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.
