Golden Heart Yoga

Experience the true essence of yoga!

GHY Welcomes Gary Kraftsow April 19-22

Gary Kraftsow is a pioneer of yoga therapy and the founder of the American Viniyoga Institute. We are very happy to welcome him to our studio this month to teach Yoga for Emotional Healing and Yoga for Stress Reduction.

This workshop will be beneficial for yoga teachers who want to help their students navigate the stresses of every day life and students who want to learn how yoga can help create peace in their lives.

We all know that emotional health is fundamental to the maintenance of overall health. The ancients understood emotion as a complex interaction between our mood, cognitive processes, behavior and physiologic responses. In this special course, Gary will present this knowledge in a modern language so that we may employ the wisdom and practices of Yoga to reduce suffering and cultivate our higher human potential.

In this course, explore models of the integrated personality that emerge from Vedic teachings and discover the science of meditation. Each day will include lecture, discussion, and practices that integrate asana, pranayama, chanting, mantra, and meditation.

As we learn to recognize the direct influence that thought and emotion have on our biochemistry, we can develop and cultivate practices that transform negative qualities of mind and promote well-being.

We hope you’ll join us for this enriching course in yoga! When Gary visited our studio in 2011, students found him to be personable, compassionate, and a very effective teacher. We look forward to sharing Gary’s teaching once again. To register for the workshop, please visit the studio at 179 Admiral Cochrane Drive, Suite 120, Annapolis MD 21401 or call 410-224-3278. More details are available on our web site.
