Emotional health is fundamental to the maintenance of overall health and well-being. The ancient sages understood emotion as a complex interaction between mood, cognitive processes, behavior, and physiological responses. Master teacher Gary Kraftsow presents these teachings in contemporary language so that the wisdom and practices of yoga can be employed to reduce suffering and cultivate higher human potential. Lecture will include the yoga therapy perspective and methods to transform states of anxiety and promote a deeply restorative impact on the entire system.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Explore models of integrated personality that emerge from Vedic teachings
  • Discover how the science of pranayama, mantra, and meditation can be applied for emotional healing
  • Learn to recognize the direct influence that thoughts and emotions have on our biochemistry
  • Cultivate practices that transform negative qualities of mind, promote well-being and manage the symptoms of depression.

Each day of this program includes lecture, discussion, and practices that integrate asana, pranayama, chanting, mantra, and meditation.
