Yoga is much more than the practice of postures (Asanas). It can help us to achieve wellness, a state that encompasses a fit body, a healthy mind, wholesome habits, and a commitment to self-nurturing and self-awareness that expands to others. When we are truly well internally we enjoy the richness and fullness of life, and are committed to practices that nourish and make us feel happy and whole –in spite of external circumstances.
This especially design Yoga for Wellness course offers you the opportunity to expand your experience of yoga beyond its physical aspects by incorporating a variety of awareness development techniques –such as conscious breathing, aromatherapy, meditation, and sound therapy among others. The objective is to support you on your way to achieving integral wellness.
