Yoga Therapy Training Level 2 – Yoga Psychology and the Immune System (India)

December 3, 2023 - December 17, 2023

This course gives an insight into the mysteries of the mind that Rishis (the wisemen) were able to see and describe. The knowledge of mind is present in all aspects of life – yoga, Ayurveda, music, dance, rituals, economics, social life or politics – and all such disciplines deal with the concept of mind only. This course is an attempt to collect the dissipated knowledge about mind and put it into a structure which is understandable to the modern mind. We will discuss about psychological hygiene. Yoga psychology analyses the deepest level of mind which is deeper than the sub-conscious as mentioned modern psychology.

This course helps you understand your mind and any mind-related issues present during yoga therapy. This course will also give detailed training on anxiety and depression, stress management and strengthening of the immune system that becomes is useful when treating autoimmune diseases.

Harilalji has been working in yoga therapy for psychosomatic and psychological ailments since 2002. His area of expertise is yoga psychology. He has the skill of explaining this ancient science of yoga psychology to the modern mind without losing its essence. In his lectures he differentiates modern psychology from yoga psychology in their approach of mind analysis without creating a contradiction. Harilalji has been
conducting research in the field of Vedic psychology since 2000.
