Led by Baxter Bell, this weekend will include a balance of theory and practice, as we learn Yoga Therapeutic applications for the digestive system. The focus will be on integrative health approaches to many common conditions of the digestive system including IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), Reflux, heartburn/GERD, Indigestion, and Ulcers.
During this weekend you will:
- Understand the basic function of the Digestive System and its various organs
- Become familiar with the most common Digestive System conditions
- Review current research on Yoga and the Digestive System
- Practice using tools from Yoga Therapy to help alleviate digestive problem symptoms
The full weekend intensive is designed for yoga teachers or students with a serious yoga practice and background. In an Open Sunday Workshop with the public, we will apply what we have learned and explore some of the essential elements of the weekend material.
Niroga weekend intensives are part the Niroga Yoga Therapist Training. The weekend trainings are offered as advanced training modules for experienced yoga teachers, health care professionals, and serious yoga students who want to enhance their knowledge and skills in specific areas. You do not have to be enrolled in the Yoga Therapy Program to take any of the weekend intensives offered throughout the year.
