VISION

We envision a world where people are ‘being human again’. Where deep healing happens from meeting others with compassion. We believe yoga teachers can lead this transformation of ‘re-humanization’ when given the right yoga therapy training and tools.

URBAN OVERLOAD

More than ever we are suffering from ‘urban overload’ – being constantly bombarded by stimuli, toxins and demands on our attention and energy. This can fuel stress, even leading to the feelings of isolation and disconnection. We are fed with ideas of impossible perfection, that we should look, behave and be a certain way. We have an opportunity – one could say and obligation – to question and see through the illusion of all the shoulds and have-to’s, to move past the impossible ideas of perfection.

EMBODIMENT

We experience life through our body – our emotions, memories, traumas, and thoughts are all felt and held in the body. So it is quite logical that when you start connecting to the body, which happens naturally through the practice of yoga, you also begin accessing and addressing some of these experiences again.

Yoga then becomes a natural starting point for deeper healing. Urban OM’s Yoga Therapy Training embraces this natural opening and continues further by safely allowing emotional release and welcoming deep personal insight.

Urban OMs Yoga Therapy Education is based on 3 fundamental keys:

BEING IN THE BODY

The foundation is Being in the Body, which means to start befriending all the different aspects of being human. We believe that there is no real transformation unless you access both body and feeling. Being in the Body is an antidote to cure the modern phenomena of ‘disembodiment’ caused by urban overload. In our Yoga Therapy Training we emphasize cultivating sensitivity of both the physical as well as the subtle body by training stress reduction and interoceptive awareness. We’ll utilise evidence-based yogic practices which apply the therapeutic qualities of postures, breathing and relaxation, thus allowing the body-mind to strengthen and heal. These practices are inspired mainly from the Krishnamacharya yoga lineage with elements of Tantric and Kundalini Yoga and the bioenergtic methods of Alexander Lowen and Wilhelm Reich.

BEING REAL

Being Real then enables development of a sense of self nourishing the connection to truth that can cut through the illusion, dream and deception from the mind. Self-inquiry, or honest introspection, is an ancient practice found in every spiritual tradition. We’ll train our yoga therapists in aspects of humanistic and transpersonal psychology in order to offer trauma-informed counseling sessions and group structures.

BEING TOGETHER

Being Together is the final key. Our focus here is how to create safe spaces which merge body and mind, and to explore the magic of letting go into ‘something more’. Active and contemplative meditative practices inspired by the contemporary and ancient esoteric wisdom of Vedanta, Mantra and Osho will help participants transcend the fixation with individual self, ultimately cultivating a deeper sense of inner-connectedness.
