Update Your Teaching Skills
Eve is part of the faculty for the Byron Yoga Centre’s annual 12-day course. She brings her considerable – 35 years – yoga teaching skills and knowledge to this ‘intensive’, joining with some of the most experienced teachers in Australia. The course is designed as an introduction to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga therapy.
Why Yoga Therapy
While any type of yoga can bring health benefits, the emphasis on therapy involves employing a variety of practices. These methods are applied to improve a health condition or to ease a natural process, such as pregnancy or menopause. Among the yogic tools used therapeutically are postures, breathing exercises, meditation and ayruvedic medicine.
While yoga by itself alleviates some problems, yoga therapy is particularly effective as a complement to other forms of health care, both alternative and conventional. Promising studies suggest, for example, that therapeutic yoga can lessen the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for people with cancer and facilitate faster recovery after bypass surgery. In clinical trials, many patients with asthma, type II diabetes, or high blood pressure were helped. With regular practice, these people were able to either lower their drug dosage, or eliminate some medication entirely.
