In our culture, we are seeing an alarming increase in the family of metabolic disorders that include Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer and Dementia. The term metabolic refers to the biochemical processes involved in the body’s normal functioning. Metabolic syndrome is a dysfunction at the cellular level that progresses to a system wide disease throughout the body.
This workshop will be a deep dive into what is happening in the body as it ages and progresses into a disease state from a Western Medicine viewpoint. But, more excitedly, Monique will address how and why the practice of Yoga can affect these internal systems and help improve metabolic functions. Delving into the “Yogic wisdom of the Cell”, you will learn how Yoga practices and concepts such as Prana/Apana and Brahmacharya play an important role in re-igniting our internal system functions.
Come prepared to learn scientific, medical and Yogic teachings along with Therapeutic Yoga practices that you can take into your Yoga classes to empower your students to help break the cycle of metabolic breakdown.
