Yoga Health Consultation

with certified Yoga Health Educators (Yoga Therapists)

Understanding Your Patterns

In this consultation you will be made aware of your lifestyle issues and how to improve the health of your body, mind and spirit. You will understand better about your thinking and emotional patterns and how your emotional events and past experiences prevent you from enjoying the peace and love inherent in your soul quality.

You will learn how to deal with your recurrent negative emotions and will receive insight in how to improve your relationships with friends and family, how to get out of feeling lonely or isolated and ways of how to get support.

We will evaluate the areas of stress in your life and guide you to make lifestyle changes or attitude adjustments to switch from reactive, self-destructive behavior, to conscious choices.

Make a Positive Change

Lastly, we will discuss your philosophy of life and your connection to your own inner Consciousness, and what to do to improve in your sense of meaning and purpose.  There will be recommendations and a Plan of Care including food and diet, exercise and specific adapted asana and routine, pranayama and relaxation, meditation and mantra, positive thinking affirmations, lifestyle and relationship recommendations, ego transcendence recommendations, study guidelines and Self-enquiry techniques.

Additional consultations on karma and karmic periods is available on request.

  • Swami Sitaramananda (C-IAYT),
  • Swami Jnaneswariananda (C-IAYT),
  • Swami Dharmananda (C-IAYT).

This appointment is an individual consultation of 2 hours to assess your physical, mental, and spiritual health condition to make recommendations for specific Yoga practices to restore strength of mind, clarity of purpose, and strategies for the Yoga path. The method used is holistic aiming for spiritual, mental and physical health using methodology and protocols of our Sivananda tradition.

Swami Sivananda was a medical doctor who became a monk so that he could be the doctor of the soul showing the path to self-mastery and taking care of the body and mind to be in a fit condition for the Yoga path.
