Therapeutic Yoga: Uncovering Inner Peace
In this 1.5 hour retreat you will be introduced to what Therapeutic Yoga is and how it can be practiced in your every day life to facilitate healing and inner peace. After an initial introduction to a specific Therapeutic Yoga technique called the Energetic Diffusion Technique (EDT) you will be paired up in order to practice using this profoundly healing technique. EDT focuses on releasing mental/emotional/physical dis-ease that is created in the body in the form of energy blocks that are felt as pain or discomfort. You will be guided in a process of uncovering this dis-ease in your own body and given techniques to help facilitate the movement of the stuck energy in order for natural healing and integration to occur. This technique can create profound shifts in your capacity to relax and release mental/emotional discomfort that has been plaguing you. You will be given a handout outlining the use of this technique so you can continue the practice on your own at home.
What is Therapeutic Yoga?
We all have an inborn healing process available to us! Often that healing process is restricted by our mental concepts and patterns of thinking. When these mental patterns are left unresolved they can create tension, physical pain and dis-ease in the body. Therapeutic Yoga takes you out of the mind that created the physical tension and into the body where this dis-ease can begin to heal. When focusing on the body itself you begin to connect with your body’s own healing energy or Prana. Just as Prana keeps your heart beating and your lungs sending oxygen to all the nerves and cells, when not commanded by the mind, Prana will facilitate healing, balance and integration in the body.
