We are delighted to announce we have reconfigured our Art of Healing course into an on-line format that you can attend directly from your living room.

The Art of Healing: Yoga Therapy is an in-depth training on how to address structural imbalances in the body. Through anatomical study, demonstration, pose modification, prop work, and SATYA we address common muscular-skeletal strain patterns. Each day includes practice sessions, meditation, postural clinics, and small group discussion to learn to sequence and modify postural movements for low back pain, shoulder restriction, scoliosis, and much more.


Part 1 : The Legs and Pelvis

The legs are the pillars to the temple of the spine. Thus it is critical in all somatic healing to address complications in the legs. All too often people suffer from strain and dysfunction in their feet, knees and hips and this causes misalignment in the upper body. In this course we cover ankle sprain, knee pain, sciatic pain and lower back pain. We cover essential SATYA movements to release the sacrum and low back and asanas to heal the feet, ankles and hips. We address hamstring injuries, sciatica, ankle sprain and lower back pain using Prajna Yoga’s twelve most therapeutic poses. In this course you will learn how to use support the body with the use of the wall, chair and bolster in order to optimize healing. We review the emotional and psychological issues that impact the legs and pelvis. This course includes a short practicum to apply the work to your students, clients or family members.


Part 2: The Spine, Shoulders, and Skull

Aligning the neck, skull and shoulders is tricky, for the upper structures of the body are most prone to misalignment. At this time of the pandemic, all structures close to the brain are subject to clenching and holding due to anxiety, stress and sleeplessness. In this immersion we focus on jaw strain, shoulder imbalance and neck strain. You will learn the essential SATYA movements and asanas to stabilize the hands, wrists, shoulder girdle and neck using Prajna Yoga’s twelve most therapeutic poses. In meditation practice we weave in techniques to reduce stress and anxiety that accumulate in the upper trunk. Additionally, we cover the emotional and psychological issues that cause strain and blockage in the shoulders and neck. This course includes a short practicum to apply the work to your students, clients or family members.

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little

Prajna Yoga makes its home in the foothills of Santa Fe, New Mexico – the home of Tias and Surya Little. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity and space within.

This course is closed for enrollment.
