Healthy vs. Stagnant

1
Injuries and trauma to the body become long-term sites for future degeneration.


Imagine a clear stream of water flowing smoothly over rocks.  The water is clean, healthy and refreshing to drink.  This is also how the flow of blood, lymph and nerve energy are meant to be in the human body.

Now imagine placing a log across the stream and blocking some of the water flow.  The water down-stream will be impeded and become stagnant; resulting in green scum, mosquitoes and general yuckiness.

Injuries, operations and trauma to the body, which damage tissues: muscle/blood/lymph/nerve (meridians and nadis) likewise cause stagnation and impede the healthy flow of these streams – setting the scene for degeneration and disease.

It becomes more important to practice yoga after an injury or operation, than it was before!

Of course, it has to be the right type of yoga, with appropriate techniques for revitalizing energy flow.  To rehabilitate the practice has to be gentle, progressive and intelligent.  For example, after a hip replacement or traumatic childbirth, it would be the height of stupidity to jump back into a strong asana practice.  But, it is equally inappropriate to do long holds as in Yin Yoga.

Yoga Therapy is a term that is being suppressed because of its' 'medical' association, but it describes the right approach to heal the body and to regain full functionality.  Yoga Therapy taps into the tools of Yoga (asana, relaxation, pranayama and meditation) to ease the body back into functionality and health – to be the best it can be given the changed circumstances.  A hip prosthetic is never going to have the range of mobility and stability of a real one.

Because of the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) restrictions, we have had to change the term 'Yoga Therapy' to 'Yoga – Holistic Healing'.  The name has changed, but the approach has not.

In the Knoff Yoga Teacher Training program we offer two levels of Yoga Therapy:

Yoga – Holistic Healing A (4 – 8 September 2017)
Yoga – Holistic Healing B (11 – 15 September 2017)
 
See www.knoffyoga.com for more information.  These two Courses are extremely useful for yoga teachers to learn the techniques and skills necessary to help their students with injuries and trauma.
