YOGA AS THERAPY
Yoga is a complete system designed to allow us to be present in each of our actions and thoughts. It is also a complex and highly effective mechanism for healing and regulating the mind and body.
In this module of Geoff Brooks’ advanced yoga courses, you will explore how the finer aspects of the yoga practice can be turned into an advanced healing modality. Some of this ancient awareness have formed the foundations of Yoga classes like Restorative, Yin, Meditation and Pranayama techniques. It is said that these foundations originated in the Himalayas thousands of years ago.
Essentially, our bodies and minds self regulate, yet when the inputs are not in harmony with our true nature, our stress levels increase. This stress is held within various tissues and organs within the body and if these are not released, it has the potential to turn into discomfort, pain, or disease.
Yoga Therapy is designed to isolate the areas the stress is held and to provide techniques for the movement of energy through these areas, so the self regulating process can occur.
Though the completion of this module it is intended that you be able to:
• Assess and work with individuals in a one-to-one basis to aid in a yoga healing program
• Design a Restorative or Yin class with greater awareness as to the deeper intentions of the poses, and the purpose of the practice
• Guide Pranayama and Meditation practices with authority as to their true intention.
The key focus and teachings of this module is the ability to instill the practice of self awareness and non-judgmental observation, to then apply this to others.
Geoff has worked with and advanced the healing of professional athletes, aided people with debilitating diseases, worked with the aged and the stressed, and worked for rehabilitation companies as a consultant and facilitator. His personal involvement has been through a series of physical and mental experiences which he was initially assisted through a healing process using Yoga, and most recently recovering from a broken neck and head wound.
Here in Bali, Geoff created the 5-Day Yoga Therapy and Detox Program for Radiantly Alive, which has been received with high praise. He offers private consultations, all while teaching regular classes at Radiantly Alive and abroad. His trainings are tailored to focus on specific aspects of the complete Yoga practice in order to promote Yoga as a complete holistic system for living and well being.
