Yoga Sopan Course - Introductory (5 hours)

For Self-Healing

 

 

"Yoga is only for flexible people." "I can't do Yoga, I am so inflexible!" "I can never contort my body into a pretzel." "I might break my back!"

Perhaps, you are afraid of Yoga and what it may entail. Don't worry - together, we will overcome these misconceptions through this introductory course. 

You will learn that Yoga comprises more than just physical practice. There are various different aspects in Yoga, such as Pranayama (Yogic breathing techniques) and Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep). Developed by Dr Guruji Vishwas Mandlik, this course will be based on the Chinese Meridian. In this course, you will learn gentle movements to improve lifestyle, destress, and overcome pain in the  body. You will also be taught how to start a sustainable self-practice. When done mindfully, these movements help to relieve tension in our bodies, especially neck, shoulder, and back pain, balancing our vital energies and prana (qi) in the body.  These body movements can then help to remobilise our muscles and slow down or reverse the development of 'disuse atrophy'. 

We may find relief from tension or pain through different forms of therapy. However, the biggest challenge is consistency. Yoga Sopan, as the first stepping stone, introduces you to an easeful practice that is simple to learn which can easily be incorporated into your daily life. Whether you are completely new to Yoga, experiencing pain or discomfort, learning with the intention to teach or help someone around you. This course is suitable for anyone of all ages, including doing who are doing therapy.
