Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Health Challenges–2

About us


  • Enrollment in Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training
  • Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Principles
  • (ideally) Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Health Challenges–1
  • Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Ayurveda

This is a 5-day residential course that includes a combination of lecture, discussion, case studies and practicum, (which is done after the course, at home.)

Yoga therapy has proved extremely helpful for many chronic health conditions. This course covers Obesity, Diabetes, Thyroid disorders, Congestive Heart Failure, Autoimmune Disorders, Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Headaches (Tension & Migraine), Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, PTSD, Asthma, and COPD.

We review the anatomy of systems involved and basic pathophysiology for these conditions. Medical, Ayurvedic, and subtle energy perspective on these health challenges are addressed to guide the therapist's choice of interventions. In class, case studies are presented to provide time in practical application of the concepts. Students also apply the knowledge gained by writing up their experience working with volunteer clients in their community and then receiving individualized feed back from course instructors.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
