Yoga + Meditation for Health and Healing

The efficacy of yoga as a therapeutic discipline needs no elaboration. In ancient times when medical science was not existent but wars were fought soldiers got wounded with arrows and spears they healed themselves with potions of herbs and medicinal plants and by meditating in certain postures including Veerasana (warrior pose).

Today the medical fraternity around the world is recommending pranayams to regulate granular disorders. The effect of mudras and bandhas on our body and mind is well known. Swamiji has developed a method he calls ‘Therapeutic Application of Yoga (TAY) Immersion’ using yoga and spiritual healing which is being increasingly sought by people with health issues both from India and overseas looking for alternate healing methods. The one- week (56 hours) Immersion includes consultation (detailed dialogue aimed at correct diagnosis), detoxification of body, thought cleansing, appropriate yoga + meditation regimen, diet and lifestyle changes to strengthen immunity depening on individual needs and spiritual healing. At the completion of the Immersion each patron is handed over a specially developed roadmap for follow-up practice at home with online support.


The course is broadly divided into two parts. First part helps us understand what is life and the second part what is living. The first part is the science of life and second part the art of living. The basis is the deeper aspects of yoga philosophy and its application as prescribed by sage Patanjali. Course also unravels the cause of suffering. The second part provides a deeper understanding of body, mind and Soul and the factors that impact our wellness. Using the applied aspects of yoga the course prescribes a yogic regime to address specific health/wellness issue.

It can remove energy blockages, improve our aura (immunity), slowdown our metabolism, nourish our brain, calm our mind, bring clarity of thought and prepare an inner field where we can possibly get answers to the fundamental questions such as “Koham?” meaning “Who am I?" Where meditation can happen.

A strict yogic routine, satvik, organic food and a daily Satsang will help overhaul our body and mind, Swamiji will also guide us through selected Asanas, Pranayams, Mudras, Bandhas and most important certain Dharanas (types of yoga that Tantra prescribes) that will help us manage our mind, improve our concentration, remove/reduce clutter, help add a filter and delete button to our thought storage process. There is a special emphasis on techniques that help us address mental issues – stress, anxiety, fear, frustration and anger.

The Immersion will help rejuvenate us completely in terms of body, mind and spirit.
