Yoga is a way of life that enables us to truly inhabit our bodies, mind and spirit. It brings compassion and meaning to our relationships to others and to the world around us. An ancient Eastern practice, yoga today can still transform our lives, connecting us to our inner selves and bringing us into a state of profound well-being.
Lourdes Yoga Teacher Training programs are the longest running programs in this region. Our diverse faculty has years of experience in practice and teaching. We have found yoga from varied backgrounds and cultures, and we truly embrace the Lourdes Health System’s mission statement of a diverse community committed to service, healing and collaboration. We teach a wholistic yoga practice. It includes the physical poses with a foundation of evidence-based benefits of cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and immune health. Perhaps even more importantly, it includes the deeper yoga practices of breath work and meditation that are increasingly gaining respect in the medical community through research of yoga’s beneficial influence in areas such as depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorders, and post traumatic stress syndrome.
