The Anubhava Yoga 360° Yogic Preventive Therapy Course
The 2.5 month Yoga Preventive Therapy/Chikitsa Yoga is an introduction to the physiological branch of Yogic therapy, seen through the perspective of contemporary medical knowledge. Yogic therapy, as such, is an integrated system of homoeostasis promotion for the psychological and physiological structures of the body. Within the overall system of Yogic therapy, Chikitsa Yoga concentrates on promoting structural harmony and disease prevention/ healing, through the manipulation of the physiological structure-the human body.
The basis of physical and mental homoeostasis is the hormonal or endocrinal system of the body. Asanas or Yogic physical postures, by forcing the body into certain positions, create conditions within the body that activate the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus region of the brain. Being activated in specific ways, these controlling sectors of the endocrinal system then secrete or inhibit hormones in combination with the other endocrinal glands, causing desired metabolic and other organic changes within the body.
From the skeletal-muscular framework to the hormonal and systemic regulation of the internal organs, Yoga asanas act in a transformative manner, not just in the healing process and disease prevention, but of equal import, the asana practice extends life-expectancy by preventing ageing factors such as stenosis.
An understanding of the complex, networked human physiology and its relation to the Life-force/ Prana matrix comprise the essence of the 2.5 month Yoga Therapy programme. The application of this knowledge to address a range of 60 diseases, across 8 body systems, using asanas and pranayamas as the tools of therapy, is the practical section of the 2 month Chikitsa Yoga programme.
