Introduction to Yogic Medicine Keys A course to awaken the ancient healer within. With Miguel Mendez, PlantYogiChef
As our studies on this yogic path continue, it is inevitable that our consciousness begins to open and expand. We begin to understand, or seek to understand, things about ourselves, human nature, and the cosmos, that may have seemed irrelevant or unappealing to our former selves. We begin to see that yoga can be far more than just asanas and meditation, but instead can truly be a holistic way of life that permeates our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual experience. It is by entering through this doorway of inquiry that we can learn new ways of taking care of ourselves and others, new tools for cultivating our vitality and vibrancy, and more potent ways for us to be engaged in the upliftment of the planet.
In this workshop, we will introduce easy-to-apply healing techniques to deepen and expand our personal practice, as well as our teaching:
- Acupressure, Chinese medicine, and the 5 Element Theory
- Chakras, diagnosis and the glandular system.
- Astrology and archetypes in relation to your asana practice
- 5 basic healing touches to activate the parasympathetic system
