Are you interested in preventive medicine?
Traditional medicines are now acknowledged for their restorative value and do complement modern medicine. The Indian traditional system of healing, Ayurveda, offers a holistic method to counter stress and imbalance caused by lifestyle, food, and one’s approach to self, others, and nature.
People care about the side effects of synthetic drugs and want a more humanistic approach to health and wellness. The high cost of prescription drugs is also a concern. These are reasons why more people are turning to a lifestyle approach like Ayurveda for solutions that embrace natural healing ways.
Body Therapies Yoga Training is pleased to offer four learning sessions over three months to increase awareness and experience of subtle energies in both living and inorganic matter. Over this time participants will explore and observe how lifestyle, diet, and mental and emotional tendencies influence and are influenced by the qualities of energy, and ultimately impact health or illness. This information and experience adds more gems to one's jewelry box and contributes to healthier relationships. Breathing exercises is included in each session.
Who might embark on this journey?
Therapists, yoga teachers, life coaches and those passionate about natural prevention are welcome to take this 12 hour course with Ayurvedic Physician, Vaidya Manish Trivedi. Participants will enhance their personal life, and enrich client/student relationships and outcomes.
