1. Techniques, Training, and Practice

5. Practicums

In addition, we cover the history of Yoga, the Basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the In-Depth anatomy of breathing and the spine, Yoga Psychology, and studies on Chakras and Energy Bodies.

The Term “Therapy” is used to indicate that our organization uses the ancient practices of Yoga for Therapeutic Healing purposes, in order to improve posture, align the spine, create more body awareness, breath awareness, concentration, and increase Self-knowledge. By no means does this mean that we are able to diagnose, treat or cure any advanced state diseases or emotional disorders. Yoga and meditation have been proven to improve life quality when practiced regularly, and we purely transmit the ancient teachings of Yoga practice as passed on to us by the Yoga Masters of their time.
