About the event

Yoga Chikitsa Teacher Training in Gitananda Yoga

Yoga Chikitsa could be termed “man’s first attempt at unitive understanding of mind-emotions-physical distress and is the oldest wholistic concept and therapy in the world”. Swamiji Dr Gitananda Giri Ji

Yoga understands health and well-being as a dynamic continuum of human nature and not merely a ‘state’ to be reached and maintained. Yoga helps the individual to establish sukha sthanam which may be defined as a dynamic sense of physical mental and spiritual well-being.” Dr. Yogachariya Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani
