This is our second level course and requires the foundation in Samkhya.

Mental health is discussed both within an Āyurvedic and Allopathic format. This allows practitioners to have a modern understanding to interact with western mental health professionals, while having a traditional understanding of the mind for Yoga Therapy. We discuss Yoga and Āyurveda for anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, obsessive compulsive disorders, personality disorders, pain management, and suicide.
