“Yoga Therapy Course” with Sharat Arora at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre

Yoga Therapy classesYoga Therapy Courses at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre and in the Himalaya Shanti Ashram are designed to give people a good alternative of understanding their health problem and what to do to fix it. It is for everyone with any kind of ailment seeking an alternative way of healing themselves. Indian Yoga master with 38 years of practice, teaching and healing experience, instructs specific Asanas to each participant as well as gives his consultation and his recommendation on a holistic approach to lifestyle including diet. His expertise and special energy empowers people giving them confidence to practice independently.

The main focus of the Sharat Arora Therapautic Yoga Teaching is to give a working knowledge and confidence for each participant for their Healing Self-Practice at home to continue helping their ailment. The Therapy Course includes many corrections and close personal supervision in order to help the student understand their healing process.

An ailment can take root and develop into a seemingly chronic issue over years of misalignment or ill-treatment of the body. It then requires time and correct actions before it can be removed from the body. Therefore it is to be understood that only those willing to take up a Healing Self Yoga Practice seriously may apply for the Yoga Therapy Course.

Yoga Therapy

In our Arambol Yoga Centre, North Goa, we offer the 26-Day Yoga Therapy Course in December/January.

In our Himalaya Shanti Ashram, Dharamsala, we offer the 26-Day Yoga Therapy Courses in April/May.

The program of the Therapy Course includes; firstly, 2 weeks of the prerequisite 5-Day Courses (introductory as well as the continuing students class) at the Dharamkot Yoga Centre; and then, the 12-Day Yoga Therapy Course in the Himalaya Shanti Ashram. In between every 5 days of teaching the therapy participants have 2 days of self-practice in the Yoga Centre Hall. The 2 days of self-practice is indispensable for the participants to realise any doubts or questions related to their individual yoga healing program prescribed during the classes. The two preparatory 5-Day Courses of the regular classes prepare the practitioners to go deeper in their understanding the healing process and the method towards it.

After completing the two 5-Day Courses, the Therapy course starts with 1-2 days of diagnosis, made by the master teacher Sharat Arora. For each and every practitioner our team will design a special program, according to their own needs. The diagnosis will take place in a group so the understanding of the method will become clear, if however a participant wishes a private consultation this can be made possible.

During the 2 weeks of the Therapy course the practitioners will participate in the Continuing Students' Classes in the mornings and the Therapy Classes in the afternoons. The practitioners will get all the tools to maintain a high level of practice and they will benefit by knowing not only how to continue their practice at home, receive plenty of corrections and personal supervision, but they will also receive more subtle indications for their Yoga Practice to heal themselves more effectively. At the second week, the team, headed by the Master Sharat Arora will check the progress of healing and will adjust the programs accordingly. 

Please note: When the Therapy course take place at the Himalayan Shanti Ashram the participants are requested to remain in the Ashram for the whole duration of the course, which also means not go out in the afternoons or on the free days. It is strongly recommended to spend that time in nature in silence with oneself to keep the mind as quiet as possible.

Please note: All the therapy classes conducted by master yoga teacher Sharat Arora will be recorded by audio, video and photography for the purpose of archiving the teachings as well as the students' support.
