The Holistic Healing path of Yoga

Yogini joga - Studio Eviana, Trzin, Slovenija

27. - 30. April 2017

Stress. It is bothering you? Then you should consider the holistic approach of Yoga to refresh, rejuvenate and revitalize you. Yoga, an ancient philosophy and practice that originated in India, has been a system of health and well being for thousands of years. Its rich approach combined with its simplicity in implementation has sustained its role in nourishing people for generations.

One of the key advantages of a system like yoga is that it views the human system as a holistic entity and hence approaches health and well being too from this perspective. This is why it offers so many tools in the healing process that address the holistic human system. Though yoga is today associated mostly with postures, it is just one of the many tools that yoga has to offer.

Some of the most profound tools in yoga include conscious breathing regulation, meditation, life style changes, visualizations, use of vocal sounds and food specifications among many others. This makes the healing process very comprehensive and extremely specific to the individual.

The other key advantage of yoga is that it empowers people in the healing process. Rather, than being a passive recipient of treatment, the student is actively engaged in the path to well being and is primarily responsible for his/her recovery. The role of the teacher becomes to act as a mere guide in directing the student to the tools for recovery and teaching the right way to implement them. Once this is done, it is then the role of the student to practice it diligently, observe changes, and notify the teacher for any changes. Thus the healing comes from within the student, rather than from the outside. This powerful system has helped many thousands of students who have sought yoga as the solution to their problems.

This great art was perfected and presented by T Krishnamacharya, one of the most important yogis of our modern times. It was continued and shared around the world by his son and most prominent student TKV Desikachar. Both of them healed and revived many people from all kinds of problems through this holistic, yet simple approach. Their work is now being carried on Dr. Kausthub Desikachar, co-founder and chief Yoga Therapist of the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation.

This seminar will present the essential principles of the holistic approach of Yoga as complimentary system of health and wellbeing. It will also offer experiential practices that participants can benefit from. It will be of particular interest to working professionals, home makers, yoga teachers / student of anyone for whom stress has become a way of life.
