EMOTIONAL BLOCKAGE TREATMENT

 

As we know, body and mind are closely connected. Repetitive negative thoughts in our mind manifest in our body as blockages causing weakness, impatience and disease. Through the emotional blockage treatment, body blockages are removed so the energy can flow at maximum again. This treatment is an OPTIONAL part of our 300-hour yoga teacher training course. Over the 25 days in your Yoga TTC, Swami-ji devotes his time and energy to bringing freedom and emotional release to each individual student. Everyone knows yoga isn’t just about the positions, but not everyone has the spiritual insight to unlock the inner life.

We carry around in our bodies the stress from modern life and trauma from our past. Swami-ji systematically applies pressure to areas of your body where these emotional blockages are locked. After some period of pain there comes complete release- and many people are surprised to see what comes bubbling up from their deep past. Swami-Ji doesn’t support temporary fixes or encourage dependency, so he’ll teach you body-awareness and breathing techniques to maintain your re-balanced freedom. You won’t find another yoga Teacher Training course in Rishikesh that offers such attention on emotional release. Here at Gyan Yog Breath it is understood that becoming a yoga teacher means more than only learning asana, pranayama, anatomy & philosophy.

The teaching approach of this course is rather practical than theoretical and demands patience, practice and surrender. This treatment was invented by Swami Bipin Gyan and is only taught at Gyan Yog Breath.

During the 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, you will learn about:

  • Body points
  • Treatment Structure
  • Treatment Practice
  • Relationship between emotional accumulation in body and thought pattern
