Intro to Yoga As Medicine: Two-Day Workshop

Intro to Yoga As Medicine: Two-Day Workshop with Dr. Timothy McCall

Saturday–Sunday, May 23–24 • 10:00 a.m.–5:30 p.m.

Dr. Timothy McCall, one of the Yoga world’s most acclaimed pioneers and teachers, brings his unique Yoga As Medicine practice to everyone interested in learning to feel better and helping others to feel better too. In this weekend workshop, an introduction to his full five-day program but available as a two-day event, you will discover the concepts and practices that make Yoga a full prescription for good health. Practice observing bodies, study breathing patterns, analyze doshas (body-mind types as described in ancient Ayurvedic medicine), and learn to tailor personalized therapeutic Yoga practices. Lectures, Yoga practices, writing exercises, and guided meditations complement the group casework. In addition, on Sunday, Timothy will demonstrate an in-depth Yoga Therapy evaluation of one of the workshop participants. Open to healers, health care professionals, Yoga students and teachers, as well as anyone seeking Yoga Therapy for such conditions as back pain, cancer, arthritis, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, and depression. Familiarity with basic Yoga concepts and practices is helpful but not absolutely necessary.
Will break for lunch each day from 1:00-2:30 p.m.
