Yoga as Medicine – Full 5 Day Program with Dr. Timothy McCall hosted by the Minded Institute and Yogacampus.
Join Dr. Timothy McCall, certified physician, medical editor of Yoga Journal, yoga therapist and author for this special Level 1 Yoga as Medicine training which is medically and scientifically informed while remaining true to the heart of Yoga and Ayurveda.
Yoga As Medicine is a 5-day, 30-hour, hands-on, roll-up-your sleeves intensive workshop, with much of the time spent doing yoga therapy in small groups under Timothy’s supervision. Practice observing bodies, study breathing patterns, analyzing doshas (body-mind types as described in ancient Ayurvedic medicine), and tailoring personalized therapeutic yoga practices. Lectures, yoga practices, writing exercises and guided meditations complement the group case work. In addition, on Sunday, Timothy will demonstrate an in-depth yoga therapy evaluation of one of the workshop participants.
During case work, which begins Monday, and in detailed discussions of selected cases, we evaluate “patients” in five categories, using the acronym SNAPS: Structural, Nervous System and Breath, Ayurveda, Psychology and Spirituality. This holistic roadmap allows for a systematic assessment of function on all levels of body, mind and spirit. YAM uses the full palette of yogic tools including poses, breathing techniques, meditation and philosophy as well as dietary and lifestyle advice.
For those unable to join us for the full 5-days, there are a limited numbers of spots available to attend the weekend-only portion of the training which can be booked here.
This 5-day training is intended for yoga teachers and trainee teachers plus yoga therapists. We also welcome serious students of yoga and those seeking yoga therapy for such conditions as back pain, cancer, arthritis, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression.
