For every yoga practitioner, teacher and aspiring therapist, the content of this module is very important. Yoga is practiced and applied on human individuals. Therefore, complete understanding of the human individual is the basic pre-requisite.
Yoga deals with the mind. That’s why it is called Mano-sastra. The mind is inextricably bound with the physical, physiological and deeper constituents of the human system. A complete understanding as well as practical and experiential knowledge is essential to tread the path of yoga and yoga therapy.
In this module, the yogic anatomy is dealt with extensively, taking concepts from various Upanishads and many yogic texts. Participants will be introduced to:
- what they are in reality and
- what their real essence is
In particular, we will study the therapeutic implications of the study of this human constitution.
Yoga and yoga therapy owe their great potentials to prana. Therefore, it is possible to reap the maximum benefits out of the practice of yoga and yoga therapy only through complete and comprehensive utilization of the prana system.
The basic requirement for this is an understanding of the prana system in the human constitution.
- its important divisions
- its passages called Nadis
- how the nadis are interlinked to the chakras
- its normal physiological importance
- the manifestation of any imbalance in its activity and
- the diagnostic methodology of assessing the imbalance
- Nadi pariksa – study of the pulse
This study itself is completely
scientific and verifiable. Various Upanishads and major yogic texts
are replete with all the practical information.
In this module, we give special importance to the therapeutic applications of prana system.
Yoga refers to a state of mind. The mind
is the most powerful instrument in the human system. This module gives
an extensive practical methodology of assessing the mind and how to use
these assessments in therapy.
The psychology, the study of the mind, as presented by the yoga system, is both complete and comprehensive.
- The constituents of the mind
- Functions of each constituent
- Different states of mind
- Changes that are happening in the mind
- Cause for these changes
- Effect of changes on the mind and on the body
- Manifestation of these effects on the mind and body
- The methodology of diagnosis of these psychological changes
The afternoon sessions will include Vyuham in yoga therapy, therapeutic methodology. Yoga sutra gives a very clear methodology in therapy. This procedure includes:
- Heyam – Study of the individual and study of the problem
- Hetu – Study of the cause for the problem
- Hanam – Setting the goal for the individual
- Upayam - Tool to be used to achieve the goal
The above four can be achieved using four therapeutic methods namely:
- Darsanam - Observation
- Sparsanam - Palpation
- Prasnam - Interaction
- Nadi pariksa – Study of the pulse
In the afternoon, the first and third hour will be on studying the methodology of examination in a workshop manner. The second and the fourth hour will be discussions based on examinations done in the previous hour.
