This is Part 1 of a 2-part series, and may be taken as an individual workshop. 
 
Yoga As Medicine is a hands-on, roll-up-your sleeves intensive workshop, with much of the time spent doing yoga therapy in small groups under Dr. McCall's supervision. Practice observing bodies, study breathing patterns, analyze doshas (body-mind types as described in ancient Ayurvedic medicine), and tailor personalized therapeutic yoga practices.
 
Lectures, yoga practices, writing exercises and guided meditations complement the group case work. Timothy will demonstrate an in-depth yoga therapy evaluation of one of the workshop participants using the acronym SNAPS: Structural, Nervous System and Breath, Ayurveda, Psychology and Spirituality. This holistic road map allows for a systematic assessment of function on all levels of body, mind and spirit. YAM uses the full palette of yogic tools including poses, breathing techniques, meditation and philosophy as well as dietary and lifestyle advice.
 
Past attendees have included healers, health care professionals, yoga students and teachers, as well as those seeking yoga therapy for such conditions as back pain, cancer, arthritis, heart problems, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety and depression. Familiarity with basic yoga concepts and practices is helpful, but not absolutely necessary.
