Healing the Organic Body | Online Immersion
October 13 - October 17
While it is valuable to stretch and strengthen the musculoskeletal system in yoga, the health of the organs brings radiant vitality to the entire body. In this course we utilize postures, pranayama, meditation and dietary regulation to support the health of the internal organs.
We focus on generating the flow of prana (blood and lymph) through each organ to support motility (inherent motion) and metabolic exchange. We review the anatomical position and function of each organ and practice SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga) to slide, squeeze, wring, drain, and flush fluids through each organ.
Many people suffer from stagnation in the viscera due to excess sitting, dietary imbalances and repressed emotion. This can lead to sluggishness, fatigue, stagnation, and the unwanted growth of tumors and cysts. In each day of this course, we practice active postures such as twists, back-arches and inversions and do restorative postures to reduce inflammation.
The organs are highly sensitive, highly responsive structures given their soft-bodied walls and compartments. Thus we will take into consideration not only the physiological make up of each organ but also the psychological and emotional characteristics of the liver, kidney, lung, and large intestine.
Surya will present information on the alchemy of yoga and food to heal the internal organs. From both Ayurveda and Oriental Medicine, we study the meridians and key acupressure points associated with each organ. In this unique course, you will gain a new approach to practice, healing your organic body for longevity and vitality.
