Online / onsite Master Course: Essentials of Yoga Health & Self Healing

with Swami Sitaramananda and Swami Dharmananda

July 21 - 28, 2024


The process of what we call holistic healing is not just healing of the physical body and the mental body but it is seeing under a different light your own Self. The Self, the Atman, is compared to the shining radiant Sun, giving light and life to all around. Self- Healing is allowing your consciousness to enlighten yourself so that you understand that the body and the mind are your instruments, and you are not making the mistake that your body and your mind is your Self.

The Yogic and Vedantic approach to Self-Healing is based on the subtle understanding of a philosophical, consciousness-based  interpretation of reality. Self-Healing is about treating the total person where the Self, the Atman, occupies the central role, governing the body and mind from within. From this perspective, we know what to do to discover, strengthen and protect the connection to Self. It is the complete spiritual path offered to ready spiritual seekers and health-conscious individuals in a nut shell.

Daily 2 yoga asana classes; 2 vegetarian meals; 4 hours lectures X 6 days = 24 hours of mind-blowing knowledge.

Day 1: What is the Self; What is Self Healing; What is the nature of our life struggles
Day 2 : What to do with Prana; Healing Karma; Daily routines Yoga and Ayurveda
Day 3 : Root causes of suffering; Conscious training in sadhana; Obstacles from environment
Day 4 : Healing emotions and relationships; Finding selfless love; Finding purpose
Day 5 : Sublimation of desires; Protecting oneself with mantra; Positive thinking

Swami Sitaramananda will condense gems of wisdom from her 40 years of practice and teaching in a full week and help you to go straight to the goal, knowing what is important and what is not to be successful in life and in Self-realization. She will be supported by Swami Dharmananda who has dedicated years of teaching on yogic lifestyle, stress management and positive thinking.
