'Yoga is Medicine' Workshop with Vicky Tomsky
Yoga doesn’t heal- it creates an environment where the body can heal itself.
When & Where
Apr 29, 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Rishon LeTsiyon, Rishon LeTsiyon, Israel
Everything You Need to Know
This workshop is inspired by the teachings of my teacher, Judith Hanson Lasater
We live chronically stressed.
Most of the stress we create for ourselves is in our thoughts, thoughts usually about the future and things we cannot control.
The cure for this is straightforward and hard and is called living in the present.
There is no way to train our bodies to avoid suffering, suffering is the lesson the universe gives us, every moment potentially.
When we’re talking about immunity, we're also talking about stress and our immune response to stress.
Some stress is good for us. Your muscles strengthen through stress.
Our immune system is educated by the stress of an invader and keeps us from becoming sick.
The challenge with stress is when we are constantly under it, this is when our cells, organs, systems, and functions begin to break down.
Studies are starting to show that the practice of yoga actually helps the immune system.
Yoga practice doesn't cure the body. There are no drugs, no surgery, no pill, no acupuncture, nothing of the modalities, holistic, or traditional, or modern medicine, none of that cures the body. All of these contribute in their own way to create an environment in which the body cures itself.
During this workshop we will learn about:
*The art of being relaxed
*The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
*Anatomy of the internal organs
*How to reduce stress
*How to create an environment where the body can cure itself.
*We will receive tools to heal ourselves.
* Therapeutic movement & how breath connects us to our minds
* Finding Comfort in Your Practice, Pranayama & Meditation
Together we will practice restorative yoga poses to experience how it reduces stress and restores health.
Restorative poses are poses of being rather than doing. There is a deliberate stillness
“We accept responsibility for ourselves when we acknowledge that ultimately there are no answers outside of ourselves. . . . It is our dedication to living with open hearts and our commitment to the day-to-day details of our lives that will transform us.”
