Yoga Therapy

Yoga is beneficial for the health in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand.  Even though it has been applied with therapeutic intention for thousand of years, Yoga Therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline in itself.   More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing -- and more yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching.  People who have never tried yoga before are starting to consider including Yoga in their treatment plan.

Asana Post

‘Sheetali’ is a Sanskrit word that implies ‘cooling’. Sheetali Yoga is one of the most important Pranayama techniques implemented during yoga practice in summer. When this Pranayama is practiced, it leads the yogi to experience a sudden surge of cooling sensation in his entire body that helps in beating the persistent summer heat. It is an ideal Pranayama for cooling a person’s body after an invigorating workout session. Hence, it is usually advised to practice this summer-friendly breathing technique at the end of each yoga session during yoga practice under heat.

Journal Post

Dear Friends, As the sun shifts into Virgo and the late summer's earth element, we are enjoying the fruits of our labors along with the slowing & cooling down of summer. The earth element brings us stability and a space to pause and collect ourselves between the seasons. The calm and steadiness of earth helps prepare us for the shifting unsteadiness of the air element which visits us in the fall. I love this time of year! The weather is a perfect mix of warm days and cool nights.  AND September is National Yoga Month! This is a wonderful time of year to get the word out about the benefits of yoga. Reference our resources below on the benefits of yoga as a place to start your conversation with new students.
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India
I taught a restorative yoga retreat last month where we contemplated the energy of the Ayurvedic constitution made up of Earth and Water, Kapha. We contemplated stability, density, structure, boundaries and flow. We discussed ways to antidote the excess and deficiencies that arise with these elements, which are predominant in the winter and early spring.  One of my favorite topics to discuss as a remedy for Winter stagnation is the creation of clear un-obstructed space. This time of year is ideal for space clearing of any kind. As a Virgo and a Pitta Kapha, this brings me joy. 
Even though it is almost 90 degrees where I live in central Virginia, we have now officially transitioned into early Fall. If you cannot yet feel it in the temperature, you can see it in the colors of everything around you. What was lush and green a few weeks ago has started to turn yellow. Aptly, this is the color of this time of year, the color of the stomach and spleen meridians, our digestive organs, the Earth Element.

"Yoga as an Integrative Healing Tool"
Seniors age 65 and older represent the fastest-growing sector of the population and, like many Americans, are increasingly drawn to yoga. This presents both an extraordinary opportunity and a serious challenge for yoga instructors who must be both a resource and guardians of safety for this uniquely vulnerable group. A typical class of seniors is likely to represent the most diverse mix of abilities of any age group. While some may be exceedingly healthy, most fit the profile of the average older adult in America, 80% of whom have at least one chronic health condition and 50% of whom have at least two.
Dear Friends,

I encountered Amy Weintraub through her first book, Yoga for Depression, which I discovered as I prepared to teach a workshop on yoga for lifting mood. When the opportunity to meet her in person and work with her before her LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training at the Sri Swami Satchidananda Yoga Ashram, I jumped at the chance! It was apparent to me through her book that not only did Amy have a way with words (she holds a Masters in Fine Arts in Writing and Literature) but she was clearly someone who was living her Yoga.
