This 2.5 months yoga therapy or Chikitsa yoga is an introduction to the physiological branch of yogic therapy, seen through the perspective of contemporary medical knowledge. Yogic therapy is an integrated system of homoeostasis promotion for the psychological and physiological structures of the body.
Within the overall system of Yogic therapy, Chikitsa yoga concentrates on promoting structural harmony and disease prevention and healing through the manipulation of the physiological structure, the human body.
The basis of physical and mental homoeostasis is the hormonal or endocrinal system of the body. Asanas or yogic physical postures, by forcing the body into certain positions, create conditions within the body that activate the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus region of the brain.
Being activated in specific ways, these controlling sectors of the endocrinal system then secrete or inhibit hormones in combination with the other endocrinal glands, causing desired metabolic and other organic changes within the body.
From the skeletal-muscular framework to the hormonal and systemic regulation of the internal organs, yoga asanas act in a transformative manner, not just in the healing process and disease prevention, but of equal import, the asana practice extends life-expectancy by preventing ageing factors such as stenosis.
An understanding of the complex, networked human physiology and its relation to the life-force or prana matrix comprise the essence of the two month yoga therapy program. The application of this knowledge to address a range of 60 diseases, across eight body systems, using asanas and pranayamas as the tools of therapy, is the practical section of the two month Chikitsa yoga program.
This two-month yoga therapy or Chikitsa yoga program is an intense, full-time residential course. There will be 500 hours of training and teaching, with a mandatory attendance requirement of 95% in order to appear for the final examination.
Students having successfully completed the course will be awarded the Chikitsa yoga kriyakar or yoga therapy novice certification, enabling them to suggest and teach, with the advice of AryaMarga Yoga or registered medical practitioners, methods of disease prevention, disease elimination, and physiotherapy.
Mandatory pre-requirements for course application are:

Please book your flight to arrive at Gaggal Airport (DHM).
From Delhi, Bir is about 12 to 14 hours by bus. From the Interstate Bus Terminal (ISBT), take a bus to Baijnath. There are two overnight buses from Delhi to Baijnath, both of which depart mid-evening and arrive early the following morning. From Pathankot and Chakki Bank, board any bus heading for Dharamshala, Kangra, Palampur, Baijnath, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla.
For Dharamshala and Baijnath, refer to the following directions: from Dharamshala, Bir is about four or five hours by bus, depending on the timing of buses and number of connections. There are three ways to travel from Dharamshala to Bir by bus. There are two daily direct buses to Bir Road and Upper Bir leaving at 6:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. from the bus station in (lower) Dharamshala (about four hours).
Alternatively, you can take a direct bus from Dharamshala to Baijnath where you can continue onward to Bir either by local bus or by taxi. If the timing of direct buses to Bir or Baijnath will not work for you, the last resort options are these: either take a bus to Palampur and change there for any other bus onward to Baijnath or further east, or just hop on any bus heading east from Dharamshala, including those to Jogindernagar, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla, and ask the driver or conductor to drop you off at Bir Road. If you get to Chauntra or Jogindernagar, you’ve gone too far).
This can take from three to five hours. If your bus stops at Baijnath, you'll have the option of traveling the last leg to Bir (20 to 30 minutes) either by bus or by taxi (about INR 250). If you choose to go by bus, there are two options. You can take one of the direct buses from Baijnath to Bir (which leaves about every half hour or so and go all the way to Upper Bir) or any bus heading east from Baijnath (such as Jogindernagar, Mandi, Manali, or Shimla) and ask the driver or conductor to drop you off at Bir Road.
Take a train to Pathankot and take a bus or taxi onward to Bir. The most common way to travel to Bir is by train from Delhi (or wherever your origin may be) to Pathankot or Chakki Bank (two neighboring train stations in the Punjab, either of which is fine) and then make the rest of the journey to Bir by bus (six to eight hours) or taxi (four to five hours).
Take a train to Pathankot and onward to Bir. It is also possible to go almost all the way to Bir by train if you have considerable patience and/or a profound love for trains. There is a charming little toy train that leaves every morning from Pathankot to Ahju, just three kilometers from Bir (below the Bir Road intersection).
Most overnight trains from Delhi (when running on time) reach Pathankot approximately an hour before the toy train leaves, so the connection is doable unless your train from Delhi is quite late (which, of course, is always a possibility, though less likely on Rajdhani and Shatabdi express trains).
Taxi is the fastest and most convenient way of getting to Bir from Pathankot or Dharamshala, but it is also by far the most expensive and the least eco-friendly. So if you come by car, please consider sharing the ride with others.
