As i have been teaching globally for the past 13years, i am blessed to meet & share with thousands of students from all over the world, but often for a brief amount of time. After being frequently asked if there was a way we could continue to connect & practise together, recently i joined forces with the inspirational team at SeeBeNow in Bali & created 8x 30min yoga therapy classes, that can be accessed directly online, & practiced in the convenience & privacy of your own home.
SeeBeNow create videos, photos, sounds, and blogs you can use every day to connect to your mind, body, and Self. Based in Bali - an island emerging as a global destination for health, wellness, working, living, and being - SeeBeNow are building a bridge between the old and the new to unify all of us in the NOW.
About Shraddha Yoga Therapy
The Sanskrit term Shraddha translates as faith born from direct experience. These 8x 30minute yoga therapy practices are an invitation to come out of your head & into your body & explore for yourself the connection of your mind, body & spirit.
In Shraddha Yoga Therapy we cultivate a heightened awareness of the 12 primary meridians that activate the 12 primary organ systems of the body, as recognized in Traditional Chinese Medicine, within the asana of Traditional Hatha Yoga.
Each yoga posture, is designed to influence the flow of chi through particular meridians, influencing their corresponding organs & thus having a specific therapeutic effect.
You can download the practices individually or enjoy all 8 episodes.
