On Saturday, June 15, Gurudevi is teaching a workshop Entitled “Ending Back Pain,”at the conference of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). This is their annual event titled SYTAR — Symposium on Yoga Therapy and Research.
Gurudevi’s experiential workshop demonstrates how Svaroopa® Yoga Therapy works, through spinal decompression. She describes that she is “putting the pathway to healing in the hands of the one who needs it — the patient/client.”
Participants will experience Svaroopa® Yoga therapeutic tools for relieving back pain. In supervised partner-pairs, they will also learn how to give a Svaroopa® Yoga therapeutic technique. In addition, Gurudevi will addresses the multiple roots of back pain from a tantric perspective, as a model for how healing must address the person’s multiple dimensions, interweaving them into wholeness. This is a tantric therapeutic paradigm. The individual is restored to their essential wholeness, and empowered to navigate whatever arises in their life.
Workshop attendance is limited to 40. Thus, Gurudevi’s workshop is not for those already trained as Svaroopa® yoga teachers. However, attending the conference is highly recommended. If you already teach Svaroopa® yoga and/or offer sessions, SYTAR will expand your perspective. Through the other workshops and classes, you can explore the latest trends in yoga therapy. Moreover, attending lets you know where you stand in the growing yoga therapist profession. Gurudevi says, “The biggest boost is seeing how much you know. You hear about the struggle of others figuring out how to do therapeutic yoga.”
