What is this program looking to address?
Stress is caused by our inability to handle a particular situation and thereby lose our balance. There are some instances where we have managed stress and continued to live in a balanced state. However, at times, we have been in a state of despair, hopelessness as well as constant fear. External factors such as the existing pandemic, lock – down may have also contributed to high levels of stress in most if not all of us.
It is this extreme stress and the inability to handle it, that triggers illnesses be it hypertension, hypothyroidism, diabetes, panic attacks, insomnia, IBS, migraines, asthma and many more.
Through this program, we aim to help one, identify the root cause for their stress/problems; thereby work on overcoming it, improve the mental well being and finally the overall wellness of an individual. We will be using various techniques based on ancient texts – Yoga Sutras as well as Contemporary Psychology.
Who is organising this program?
The program has been organised by The Yoga Institute, Mumbai in association with Maniben Nanavati Women’s College (Affiliated to SNDT Women’s University). There will be a group of mentors that will be assisting the participants through the program. These programs are based on group dynamism where the learning happens from the sharing of the overall group but the most important person for the success of this program is you and you owning responsibility towards self-growth.
Taking into consideration the individual attention that needs to be given to every participant, the registration has been restricted to maximum 35.
The program has been devised/ created and will be conducted for The Yoga Institute, by Dr. Atul V Pednekar; Homeopath, Psychotherapist, Master Trainer and Senior Faculty at The Yoga Institute.
