Yoga as Medicine with Dr. Timothy McCall

November 4-8, 2017
at Westgate

Join Dr. Timothy McCall, board certified physician, medical editor of Yoga Journal, yoga therapist and author for this special Level 1 YAM (Yoga as Medicine) training.

YAM trainings are medically and scientifically informed while remaining true to the heart of Yoga and Ayurveda. They use a personalized therapeutic approach based on an in-depth evaluation of five categories, using the acronym SNAPS: Structural, Nervous System, Ayurveda, Psychology and Spirituality. This holistic roadmap allows for a systematic assessment of function on all levels of body, mind and spirit. YAM uses the full palette of yogic tools including asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy as well as dietary and lifestyle advice.

Yoga As Medicine (YAM) seminars are hands-on, roll-up-your sleeves workshops, six hours per day, with much of the time spent doing yoga therapy in small groups under Timothy’s supervision. Learn to observe bodies, study breathing patterns, analyze doshas and tailor personalized practices and lifestyle advice. Past attendees have included healers, health care professionals, yoga students and teachers, and those seeking yoga therapy for such conditions as back pain, cancer, arthritis, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression.

Topics in this training include:

  • Techniques to systematically evaluate students (and yourself) structurally, energetically, psychologically, and spiritually
  • How to select and apply yogic tools such as postures, breathing techniques, meditation, restoratives, and yoga nidra (guided visualization and relaxation)
  • Anatomical principles that deepen yoga practice and make it safer
  • The vital links between the breath, nervous system, and mind
  • Adjusting yoga practice in response to health challenges
  • Ayurvedic insights that deepen yoga’s therapeutic potential.
