Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training Online: Health Challenges–2

  • Jan 19 – Mar 12, 2022 Pre-Course opens January 5, 2022

Faculty Maitri Jones and Nayaswami Mangala

We are not currently accepting new students in the Ananda Yoga Therapy Training

Prerequisites:

This is an 8-session online course that includes a combination of lecture, discussion, case studies and practicum, (which is done during and after the course, at home.)

Yoga therapy has proved extremely helpful for many chronic health conditions. This course covers Obesity, Diabetes, Thyroid disorders, Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Pain, PTSD, Asthma, and COPD.

We review the anatomy of systems involved and basic pathophysiology for these conditions. Medical, Ayurvedic, and subtle energy perspective on these health challenges are addressed to guide the therapist's choice of interventions. In class, case studies are presented to provide time in practical application of the concepts. Students also apply the knowledge gained by writing up their experience working with volunteer clients in their community and then receiving individualized feed back from course instructors.
