The steady but incessant march of new age technology and the global corporate sector, while with manifold benefits in the form of improved quality of living and opportunities for professional growth, comes with its own caveat.

As gadgets rule our world, and a post pandemic work from home model becomes increasingly normalised, health and wellness keep getting sacrificed at the altar of efficient working and state of the art technological expertise.

From a time when the majority of care seekers for Yoga based interventions required management of musculoskeletal issues, there is a gradual but discernible shift to the need for cognitive and emotional wellness, that supports and is enhanced by physiological, environmental, social and spiritual wellness.

As rates of stress, anxiety and depression increase worldwide, further exacerbated by prevailing financial insecurities and everchanging sociopolitical dynamics, there is an inordinate pressure that a majority of individuals from all nations and all walks of life experience.

In such times, ancient disciplines of Ayurveda and Yoga offer us much insight to not only understand but also methods to cope with these challenges, with confidence and from a position of strength rather than vulnerability.

This course is designed to be interactive and participative with weekly assignments for reflection and practices to be followed through the learning period.
