I AM YOGA THERAPY

Bridge the Gap Between Yoga and Psychology 

I AM Yoga Therapy™ is a total body stretch and energy opener. It uses wall, prop and assisted poses to help you move into areas of stiffness, constriction and tightness and pain that you normally avoid. Avoiding areas of tension keeps the tightness intact and allows the body to continue to build up tension and exacerbates misalignments in the body.

The Integrative Amrit Method of Body Psychology

We approach the body as the product of both our internal environment (our thoughts, feelings, emotions and beliefs) as well as our external environment (injuries, exercise, sitting, sleeping, standing, walking habits, food). The two together create the body we see. Most styles of Yoga Therapy work with physical symptoms to help them go away. In the Integrative Amrit Method, we address the underlying invisible issues that are contributing to or exacerbating the visible symptoms. By using the visible symptoms as a roadmap to the invisible cause we can help resolve the issue at the root and symptom level.

HOW CAN YOGA THERAPY HELP?

Much of the pain and discomfort we experience is because of these structural misalignments that could be addressed by a simple regime of moving and stretching the body through its full range of motion. By holding the body in various positions for longer periods of time, combined with breath and meditative facilitation, we can move into these areas and gently and effectively release them.

“This program opened me up, cleared out the fear, and replaced it with love and compassion. I will never look at therapy the same way again.” 

-John R.

For those who want to learn and experience more Yoga Therapy, the training is a good choice. Whether you want to be certified or not, this is a great way to more intensely move into the body and listen to what it has to reveal to you. The body knows more than we realize, only the mind usually dominates the body’s wisdom. This is training is an opportunity for the mind to step back and the body to speak.

In this training your training will be directed by C-IAYT certified Eastern and Western trained Yoga teachers and therapists into the wisdom of the body and the language of energy. Using the chakras as a basis you will learn about the anatomy of energy; how it gets blocked and how to use a very simple facilitation technique to release it.

You will learn how to use this facilitation technique in coordination with gravity or wall supported poses that enhance awareness of these blocks and encourage the release of blocks in body zones such as legs, buttocks, hamstrings, heart and shoulders. This training can be used as a powerful tool for your own personal and professional journey.

This training is appropriate for counselors, mental health professionals, yoga teachers, bodyworkers, health professionals and alternative healers. Experience with yoga or some form of bodywork is recommended. For those who are new to body-centered practices, or who have physical limitations, be aware that not all practices and techniques may be easily accessible to you but that there will still be plenty for you to take away from the training. We will work with you to assist you.

The Amrit Yoga Institute is a member school of IAYT.

Yoga Therapy Workshops

Bridge the Gap Between Yoga and Psychology 

Do you have areas of chronic tension, pain or tightness? Do you sit a lot and not move around? Are you experiencing emotional stress, transition or pressure at home or work?

 

A Yoga therapy workshop is a great way to release those tensions from the inside out. The body houses tensions and tightness based on the way we sit, stand, think and feel. By gently and consciously opening the body we can return to our rightful state of freedom, ease and balance. Yoga therapy is accessible to anyone – even beginners-regardless of experience. It gently allows you to move into target areas at your own pace. Come spend a weekend being good to your body and soul.
