Yoga of the Heart: Cardiac and Cancer Certification Training – 2017

with Nischala Joy Devi

July 28 - August 6, 2017

Triple Stamp3Would you like to share Yoga with those at risk for or living with heart disease, cancer, or other life-altering illnesses? In this program, you’ll learn how the theory of Yoga can be applied to disease and general health. Yoga of the Heart is an evidence-based blend of Eastern and Western therapy, which allows the heart to expand through compassion and a love for one’s self and others.

In Yoga of the Heart, you’ll explore:

  • Tailoring practices for the individual
  • The psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of disease
  • Interfacing with the medical community
  • The virtues of a vegetarian diet
  • Basic anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular and immune systems

Each day of the training includes adaptive Hatha Yoga, practice classes, group meditation, and discussion. You will leave with the skills needed to teach Yoga in a hospital, in a clinical setting, privately, or in your own healthcare practice.

My students love the deep relaxation I use from my training. I so agree with the idea of compassion for others and ourselves. I will never forget my training, Nischala. I used the techniques on myself in 2004 when I was told I would need a stent for an 80% blockage. When it came time for the surgery, I was told it wasn’t needed and that I had the arteries of an 18-year-old. It works!—CR

I went to the Yoga of the Heart course to learn how to assist others in healing and I was healed. I experienced joy and deep healing internally and physically and my heart was opened in a way that I have not experienced before. With happiness I share this with others. I carry this with me into every Yoga class and into every relationship in my life.—JN, Florida

The program was incredibly powerful and will reverberate through my personal life and my work with those faced with illness.—CR, Ohio

Beautifully organized curriculum, warm and knowledgeable teacher steeped in yogic tradition.—JW, California

Nischala’s compassion and love is palpable; you can reach out and touch it and can’t help having it touch you. This has been the most wonderful experience.—DM, New Jersey

I came with the intention to learn more about conditions and I am leaving with a spiritual awakening.—AP, United Kingdom

I really enjoyed this program. I really liked the mixture of the information about the heart, the experience of participating as a student in the asana/pranayama/meditation relaxation, and the depth of spiritual teaching.—NW, Ontario

This is an excellent program. I’d recommend it to all who wish to open their hearts get healthy and help others on a road to better health. All was enhanced by the compassionate and beautiful open hearts of Nischala and Bhaskar.—EP, Texas
