removing inner block and obsticles

What are energetic and emotional blocks? They are obstacles that prevent the natural flow of energy and prana or life force in the body, affecting both one’s physical and one’s mental health. They may prevent one going deeper into a yoga pose, or deeper into life’s experiences. They are barriers that stop the flow of our journey forward.

The obstacles we face may be born out of our desires. Desire is like a seed. Impressions and experiences are drawn in through the five senses and then planted within our first and second chakras. As the seeds of desire begin to grow, quite unconsciously, we experience them as a gut emotion – a feeling and willing state, an emotion of “I want it now.” We have all experienced that anxious feeling in the belly, when your desire becomes an urgent need.

Desire is then fed by the fire of our mind’s meditation, as one contemplates how to achieve satisfaction. As the hunger of desire grows from our solar plexus, it slowly enters the heart, where it is stored. We tend to nurture and protect what is within the heart. We safeguard ourselves from others who may intrude into our space, or threaten our heart’s desire. The heart becomes the home of desire.

Although residing in the heart chakra, desire defuses into the throat area and manifests itself in sound, becoming vocal. When our heart’s desire is threatened then we become defensive, beginning with our words. Sound reflexes our state of mind and heart, as we interact with others and the world around, our vocals are a pivot to achieving our goals.

The third eye or sixth charka becomes blocked. Instead of the intelligence being the power to discriminate between good and bad for the purpose of self-discovery, it is used to manipulate material nature (praktri) in order to fulfill what is residing in the heart chakra. Fear and anxiety may overcome the consciousness due to our deep-rooted attachments, and our words and actions permeate our prana maya kosa or energetic and emotional body. In this way, our deeply rooted attachments in the heart, and our personal motives to fulfill our desires, cause blocked and stagnant energy within the body.

Healing desires

Desire is a natural function of the self. It is not that we can become desire-less, or free from feelings and emotion. Unfortunately in many cases we have become self-centered and selfish, not self-less. In any activities we do or any interactions we have, the mind thinks “what’s in it for me” or “what can I get out of this”. Thus the false ego becomes a driving force in our actions.

If the pivot of our desire were to change to “ what can I give” or ‘how can I serve and help others”, then the heart opens up to feel what another is feeling, and to experience life from not just your limited vision, which is often clouded over with personal motives, but from a broader perspective.

Ayurveda is a holistic healing science which comprises of two words, Ayu and Veda. Ayu means life and Veda means

knowledge or science. So the literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda is a science

dealing not only with treatment of some diseases but is a complete way of life. Read More
"Ayurveda treats not just the ailment but the whole person and emphasizes prevention of disease to avoid the need for

Ayurvedic Medicine has become an increasingly accepted alternative medical treatment in America during the last

two decades.
Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicines
* By using ayurvedic and herbal medicines you ensure physical and mental health without side effects. The natural

ingredients of herbs help bring “arogya” to human body and mind. ("Arogya" means free from diseases). The

chemicals used in preparing allopathy medicines have impact on mind as well. One should have allopathy

medicine only when it is very necessary.
* According to the original texts, the goal of Ayurveda is prevention as well as promotion of the body’s own

capacity for maintenance and balance.
* Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic, so it can be used safely as an alternative therapy or alongside

conventional therapies.
* Ayurvedic physicians claim that their methods can also help stress-related, metabolic, and chronic conditions.
* Ayurveda has been used to treat acne, allergies, asthma, anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds,

colitis, constipation, depression, diabetes, flu, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, inflammation,

insomnia, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, and ulcers.

Ayurvedic Terms Explained

Dosha: In Ayurvedic philosophy, the five elements combine in pairs to form three dynamic forces or interactions

called doshas. It is also known as the governing principles as every living things in nature is characterized by the


Ayurvedic Facial: Purportedly, a "therapeutic skin care experience" that involves the use of "dosha-specific" products

and a facial massage focusing on "marma points."

Ayurvedic Nutrition (Ayurvedic Diet): Nutritional phase of Ayurveda. It involves eating according to (a) one's "body

type" and (b) the "season." The alleged activity of the doshas--three "bodily humors," "dynamic forces," or "spirits that

possess"--determines one's "body type." In Ayurveda, "body types" number seven, eight, or ten, and "seasons"

traditionally number six. Each two-month season corresponds to a dosha; for example, the two seasons that

correspond to the dosha named "Pitta" (see "Raktamoksha") constitute the period of mid-March through mid-July. But

some proponents enumerate three seasons: summer (when pitta predominates), autumn, and winter (the season of

kapha); or Vata season (fall and winter), Kapha season (spring), and Pitta season (summer). According to Ayurvedic

theory, one should lessen one's intake of foods that increase ("aggravate") the ascendant dosha.

Yoga (Sanskrit, Pali: yĆ³ga) refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is

associated with meditative practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. In Hinduism, it also refers to one of the six

orthodox (astika) schools of Hindu philosophy, and to the goal toward which that school directs its practices. In

Jainism it refers to the sum total of all activities—mental, verbal and physical.

Major branches of yoga in Hindu philosophy include Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, and Hatha

Yoga. Raja Yoga, compiled in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and known simply as yoga in the context of Hindu

philosophy, is part of the Samkhya tradition.[10] Many other Hindu texts discuss aspects of yoga, including

Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita and various Tantras.

The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj," meaning "to control," "to

yoke" or "to unite."[12] Translations include "joining," "uniting," "union," "conjunction," and "means." Outside India,

the term yoga is typically associated with Hatha Yoga and its asanas (postures) or as a form of exercise. Someone who

practices yoga or follows the yoga philosophy is called a yogi or yogini

Swami Vishnu-devananda was the first in the West to develop a training program for yoga teachers. He did this not

only with the vision to develop yoga professionals, but also to give sincere aspirants the skills of personal discipline

and to develop messengers of peace. The Course is a profound, personal experience, based on the ancient gurukula

teaching system, integrating the student's daily life into the yoga training. By the end of the intensive four-week

course the student will possess a firm foundation for teaching others, in addition to strengthening his or her own yoga

practice with self-discipline and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit. Upon graduation from the course,

students receive a certificate of qualification. The program has seen the graduation of more than eleven thousand

students over the last thirty years. Men and women come from all around the world take part in the training, which is

given in English with simultaneous translation into European languages, as well as Hebrew, Japanese, Hindi, Tamil

and Malayalam.

we developed a program that teaches you everything you need to know to teach yoga AND run a successful yoga

business - and you can learn it from home, at your own pace.

I call it the "Yoga Teacher Training Camp" for Home Study Yoga Teacher Certification.
And with the praise I've received for the original camp-in-a-box, I've been inspired to create a full collection of home

study courses for popular and important Yoga Teacher specialities, such as Restorative Yoga Teacher, Kid's Yoga

Teacher, Chair Yoga Teacher, Pre-natal & Post-natal Yoga Teacher, Yoga Teacher Trainer (level II), Vinyasa Yoga,

Meditation Teacher, Yoga Anatomy and more.
Equally important, I've developed courses and tools to help Yoga Teachers run successful Yoga Teacher businesses.

After all, it's one thing to devote yourself to doing what you love (Yoga), but it's quite another to be able to support

yourself comfortably and securely while doing it. You won't learn these skills at a typical Yoga Teacher Camp.
Whether you're an experienced Yoga Teacher needing to re-certify or a beginner looking to become a yoga teacher -

you've come to the right place. Our Free Yoga Teacher Community will help you find what you're looking for.

extraordinary value of these courses.
