Each semester will help you mature your Yoga Chikitsa skills:

At the end of the first semester you will be able to apply basic structural yoga therapy.  You will be grounded in basic body reading for yoga assessment.

At the end of the second semester you will expand your structural therapy skills.  Techniques for case taking will be explored and practiced. You will interface with medical information and learn how to integrate the knowledge in your assessment.

The third semester you will personally experience and explore the yoga tools of mudra, pranavayu movement, yoga nidra, marma therapy, drsti, ishta devi, yantra, mahavidyas and ritual.  Mentorship during this semester will help support you in applying the tools in a therapeutic setting. In the third semester you will also learn the anatomy of life cycles from childhood through the elderly.  You will learn how to address specific conditions for age and gender.

The fourth semester is the culmination of the previous work.  You will learn the pathology of diseases, the ayurvedic considerations and potential of the yoga approach.  In this component the real depth of the scope of practice will be explored.
