For 3 days, hardworking participants came to learn and practice various breathing techniques from Guruji Dr Vishwas Mandlik. It is great to see them so keen to learn. And they left with not only new knowledge, a copy of Yoga Sopan (authored by Guruji) but also a personal diagnosis of their medical condition.
We will most definitely, be arranging for more of these workshops in future.
Yoga Anatomy & Physiology Introducing TCM Meridians Workshop (20 hrs)
Dr Prafulla Dorle, Dr Clement Ng, John Peh
(23rd -26th Nov 2017)
(7.30pm-9.30pm on Thurs/Fri & 1pm-8pm on Sat/Sun)
A modern science subject such as Yoga Anatomy & Physiology do NOT cover the Meridian, for many reasons. In Eastern discipline and concept, Yoga/Ayurveda has its parallels with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The yoga concept of 'prana' and 'nadis' are similar to TCM's 'qi' and 'meridian'. Drawing upon the uniqueness of both disciplines, we can apply these principles to reach a deeper level in our yoga practice.
While Yoga Anatomy & Physiology is a popular subject included in the many courses in Yogapoint India, this workshop is a first of its kind at Yogapoint to introduce the Physiology of Meridian. This lecture is delivered by two doctor experts in their respective field. Dr Dorle and Dr Clement. Practicals will be conducted by John Peh. Together this forms a foundation to a better understanding of how prana can affect the body systems and organs and thereby affecting our health and emotions. A continuous and balanced Prana or life force is an important element in achieving good health and happiness.
This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in going deeper into understanding the meridian theory and the various systems benefiting the organs in the body.
For those taking up future courses will have their hours credited into their courses including Teachers Training (not covering meridians)
