Somatic Therapy Training Course, India
2nd Jan - 1st Feb 2024 (Goa)

About the Course

UNLOCK POTENTIAL & TRANSFORM YOUR BODY WITH THE EVOLUTIONARY PRACTICE OF YOGA

The 1-Month Somatic 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 1 month Yoga Therapy programme. The application of this knowledge to address a range of 20 diseases, across 5 body systems, using asanas and pranayamas as the tools of therapy, is the practical section of the 1 month Chikitsa Yoga programme.

Curriculum

The 1 Month Somatic Therapy/Chikitsa Yoga programme is an intense, full-time residential course. There will be 200 hours of training and teaching, with a mandatory attendance requirement of 95%, in order to appear for the final examination.

Akshat Madan, Pranayama & Somatic Yoga Teacher

Akshat, after having quit his job as a financial advisor, set out to travel the mystical land of Yogis and Sages. He was spellbound by the beauty and diversity that India offered, but found it almost impossible to make any coherent sense of his spiritual experience. The thirst for knowledge remained unsatiated.  It was during his meeting with Roshanji, that an instant and deep connection was formed to a living lineage of yogic masters. He took the quantum leap and decided to fully immerse and dedicate himself to this new lifestyle
