Detailed Course Description:
We have all experienced universal suffering. After a global pandemic, we are living through a collective trauma each day. Psychotherapeutic Yoga focuses on traditional yoga poses and neurobiology science, that will bring a calming, energizing or balancing effect to your body and mind. It is a brain-body approach, working on the regulation of your nervous system, positively affecting your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
This combination of Eastern philosophies with Western science is suitable for any type of practitioner, from beginner to advanced. Each practice available in this course infuses neuroscience, specific traditional yoga poses, pranayamas, Ayurveda and meditation.
Given the shift in focus toward health promotion, it is not surprising that the use of complementary health approaches has increased in the past several years among medical treatments. Yoga is among the most prominent complementary health approaches.
