Jun 16, 2022

Episode 240

Kamalesh Ginger Hooven is Provost of Mount Madonna Institute and she is the Director of the Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy program.  

In our previous episode together #234 titled, Integrating Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda we discussed the three bodies, five sheaths, tanmatras and the internal limbs of Yoga.

In this episode we discuss the eight limbs of yoga in detail and how to tailor an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy program to an individual.

We discuss the following:

  • The eight limbs of Yoga:
    • Yama - disciplines
    • Niyama - positive observances
    • Asana - preparing the body to take a seat in meditation
    • Pranayama - breath control
    • Pratyahara - sense withdrawal
    • Dharana - focused concentration
    • Dhyana - meditative absorption
    • Samadhi - bliss or enlightenment
  • Tailoring an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy program keeping in mind the doshas, elements and the three principles of Ayurveda:
    • every cause has an effect
    • like increases like
    • opposites decrease
