Yoga therapy is based upon the ancient Indian traditional belief about human existence. According to this philosophy, human existence is comprised of five layers called Pancha kosha. The five layers are:
Each kosha has unique features and therefore requires a dedicated set of practices and techniques for balancing it. A disturbance in any one of the koshas tends to bring out imbalances in the other koshas. Likewise, a beneficial effect or healing in any one of the koshas, will have a corresponding beneficial healing in all other koshas.
Yoga therapy cultivates total body-mind integration and has very specific techniques for each of the five koshas, which help to balance and integrate them. Yoga therapy is applicable to a great variety of increasingly common modern day conditions such as Back pain, Asthma, Heart diseases, Spondylitis, Migraine, Anxiety, Depression etc. This is something that Western medicine all its advances, has been unable to achieve; serving to treat symptoms only, but not the underlying or root cause of the disease. Comparatively, the practice of yoga delves deep down throughout all the layers to finally reach the root cause of the disease process. It is only from this place that true physical, mental and emotional healing can begin to take place. The result of successful yoga therapy is the fully balanced personality, totally free from diseases and ill health.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a diploma in their area of study. The diploma is a highly valued and internationally recognized certification presented by the International Vasishta Yoga Research Foundation.
