We recognize that some of these practices are thousands of years old, and the world was a very different place then. We live differently now, breathe differently, have access to more information, we have longer life expectancies and have made quantum leaps in modern medicine and technology. Our vision is to extract meaning and context from the ancient practices and combine this with modern medicine, kinesiology, and therapy. We empower teachers with balanced education in yogic and eastern philosophy combined with modern anatomy and movement, which will intern empower practitioners to take control of their health and wellness, using movement and meditation as medicine.
Movement is medicine. Health and wellness programs that do not acknowledge movement as an essential component of wellness or that do not effectively integrate modern movement paradigms into their thousand-year old philosophies lack the empowering dialogue essential for transformation and evolution. Meditation is medicine, as it creates fertile space for the cultivation of potential, any health and fitness regime that does not include psychological health is incomplete. Food is medicine, any diet or prescription that neglects nourishment through whole foods as an essential component of healing is irresponsible and finally we are born from and interconnected with mother earth, she sustains us, nourishes us, and supports us. The recognition of our place in this miraculous universe: our roots, is the foundation for which health and wellness is born.
