Y A T R I: A PURPOSEFUL TRAVELLER
Yatri: Yoga for Emotional Healing™ offers specific sequences of movement, meditation, breath-work and wisdom to move through “kleshas,” the Sanskrit word for “mind poisons.” Major kleshas include anxiety, depression, anger, attachment, loneliness and jealousy. The sequences are based on teachings from classical Indian and Tibetan Yoga. Through Yatri, we do not suppress any emotion. We learn to experience the full spectrum of emotions in constructive rather than destructive ways.
Yatri is a holistic, integrative program based on 12 foundational principles which are practiced in tandem in order to experience a peace that is lasting and a happiness that is stable and sustainable. The foundations are Wisdom, Motivation, Tribe, Personal Responsibility, Thoughts, Communication, Movement, Meditation, Nutrition, Creative Expression, Accountability and Service.
