Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham Bangalore

Yoga for Stress Management

This is a 3, 5, or 7 – day course. The Stress Management course is a special stress reduction program developed as a means to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other common stress-related illnesses and diseases such as Coronary and Respiratory illness, Peptic ulcers, weakened immune system, and High Blood Pressure.

Stress according to Yoga, is imbalance. Imbalance is misery. At the mental and physical levels, it is excessive speed and thus a demanding situation that causes pain and leads to ailments and diseases. Imbalances at the emotional level manifest as upsurges that are caused by strong likes and dislikes. At the psychological level, the imbalances lead to conflicts and often manifest as petty and narrow ego-centric behavior. Lack of holistic knowledge and a balanced outlook at the subtle levels are responsible for imbalances found at gross levels.

Modern man is faced with the increasing challenges of scientific progress and technological advancements. The fast, sensitive and sharp mind of modern man places great demands on his physical system or body which struggles, to cope with this relentless rush of change. Unable to meet the challenge, the physical system responds unfavorably with problems like hypersensitivity and stress which are greatly on the rise. This fact is strongly evident as seen on the pharmacy shelves in the form of more and stronger types of headache medications, anti-depressants, and bottles upon bottles of antacids for digestive problems, just to name a few.

The Stress Management program introduced in this course uses various stimulation/relaxation techniques and practice Meditation to enable the practitioner to experience great calmness of the mind and body as well as very deep and rejuvenating relaxation during the program. Such a practice, when incorporated into an individual’s own lifestyle provides us with the tools to meet and cope with unavoidable stresses that affect us all.
