The seven chakras point to physical, emotional, and spiritual properties. This class is an overview of the body’s energy centers, their function and the accumulation of physical/mental impurities that affect the functioning of the body/mind experience. This course will include a practical understanding of pranayama techniques (breath work), mudra and kriya, as well as meditative practices including the use of mantra as powerful tools toward spiritual and emotional cleansing.

Yoga Body Psychology

Certificate of Excellence – Yoga Body Psychology Certificate of Excellence – 100 hour – On-Campus Program Courses (On-Campus) – What’s this? Life is energy. It is meant to flow through us, each time leaving us broader, richer and evolving us for having known it. When we experience more intensity than we can handle, we shut this process down and create blocks in the body. The Amrit Method of Yoga Body Psychology is designed to not only treat visible physical symptoms, but is aimed at addressing the invisible mental and emotional blocks that contribute to them. Using gravity supported, static poses held by the facilitator, or with the use of the wall or props, you will learn how to surface and release blockages held in body zones such as legs, buttocks, hamstrings, heart and shoulders.

Tiesha Lamb: Working Her Skin Magic!

Tiesha Lamb is a licensed aesthetician and the owner of Skin Voodoo in Gilbert, AZ. She combined her education in nutrition and aesthetics with her love for helping others feel their best. “It is a passion of mine to educate others on how to best care for themselves.

The mind can create a million different ways in which you can fail. We’ve all been there, and some of you might be in that space currently. If you’re not, read on, as I’m sure you’ll … Read More

Why We Need Carbohydrates

Like many in my generation, for most of my life I only knew white rice. Although I heard about whole grains I did not incorporate them into my daily eating until I was learning about whole grains about eight years ago. At that time I decided to get tested for food sensitivities and found that I’m sensitive to gluten, the protein in whole grains including wheat, barley and rye. I stopped eating most food with gluten and now find that when I do eat gluten, I almost immediately get hives. Last year, I was also tested for celiac disease, a serious autoimmune condition in which our body does not absorb nutrients. Fortunately, I do not have celiac disease. I’m glad that I’ve had these experiences as I can now share gluten-free eating with my clients and in my writing. Why We Need Carbs People are confused about carbs and about … Read More

Cranial Unwinding

Program Courses – What’s this? Certificate of Excellence in Cranial Unwinding Cranial Unwinding is based on the research of the brain, spine, dural tube, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The dural tube is a membrane that surrounds the spinal cord; the space between it and the spine, as well as around the brain, is filled with CSF. There is a rhythmic pulsation that keeps the tube and fluid in motion. Holistic practitioners can feel this rhythm, and with very gentle touch of about five grams, can manipulate the ebb and flow which promotes healing on multiple levels, especially through the use of the nervous system. At the center of this kind of energy work is the motivation to restore balance in the energy field within the neck, spine, and pelvis. By moving the energy, you can removed blockages and restore flow. “Life must flow in order to be healthy.”Gary Strauss Head … Read More
