Yoga management of common diseases is the theme for this course. Research shows that making time for you has an impact on your mental and physical wellbeing. Please note that I am not a medical practitioner and the information provided is based on self-knowledge and information from Yogic Management of Common Diseases by Dr Swami Karmananda.

Week One - Musculo Skeleton System

Yogic practices can maximise mobility and function in the joints. It also makes the life of someone suffering arthritis, back pain or sciatica more tolerable. Maintaining regular practice can also reduce dependency on pain relief drugs.

Week Two - Respiratory System

Meditation, breathing exercises, and yoga postures can all have a positive effect on the respiratory system.

Week Three - Gastrointestinal Tract

Some people are deprived of the most simple but profound pleasures of a healthy digestive and elimination system. Yoga practices can help to support you, so let’s get started.

Week Four - Cardiovascular System

The cardiovascular system is one of the most amazing organ systems in your body. It is always working hard while it circulates blood throughout your body to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide, nutrients, hormones, and cells to all your organs and tissues.

Week Five - Thyroid Disease

You hear about overactive and underactive thyroids. But what does the thyroid do? You would think it would be easier to say what it doesn’t do because it does so much!! It manages weight, emotions, how you think and process information, it manages your heart rate, bowel system, body sweat and more…. So, you definitely need to manage the thyroid. Let’s get started.

Week Six - Urogenital System

The urogenital system impacts the urinary tract, reproductive system, kidney, prolapse, menstrual disorders, hernia…. the list goes on. This week’s classes will focus on many yoga asanas (practices) that will assist with this system.

Extras - Asana

Surya Namaskara, also known as Sun Salutation, is a popular yoga practice that involves a sequence of twelve physical postures/asana positions. Surya namaskara is a complete yoga practice.

Extras - Meditations

Meditation is something many people have heard about, but not many have a true concept about it or have even tried it. Like everything you start, there is a learning process and patience to master. There are five meditations for you to work with.

Extras - Pranayama

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word that means "breath control" or "life force control." It is a practice of controlling the breath to achieve specific results, such as relaxation, increased energy, or a heightened state of consciousness. There are four pranayama practices for you here.

Extras - Mudra

Mudra is a Sanskrit term that means "gesture" or "seal". In the context of yoga and meditation, mudra refers to a physical posture or gesture, typically involving the hands and fingers, but can also be done with body parts. Mudras are used to channel and direct energy within the body.
