Certificate Course

How Yoga works – the scientific facts

With Dr. Cordula Interthal (Chandrika)

Arrival Tuesday, April 7 around 3pm, Departure Sunay, April 12 around 2pm

As yoga becomes more popular, scientists are starting to prove what yogis have known for millennia: Yoga is a complete system for physical and mental health. In this 5- day certificate course we look at how Yoga works by combining scientific findings with the description of yogic effects in the classical yogic scriptures. You will get a detailed overview on the many diseases, conditions and physiological functions on which yoga has a positive effect and learn how the scientific process works. The topics of the course are applied in the daily asana and pranayama workshops.

  • Understanding common diseases and health conditions
  • The effects of Yoga on Health and Disease (heart disease, diabetes, stress, chronic pain, back pain, mental health, cancer, brain remodeling, longevity, and much more) 
  • Using this knowledge for your personal yoga practice and as a Yoga teacher
  • Merging yogic understanding with western scientific methods
  • Understanding scientific studies: physiological effects of Yoga (asanas, pranayama, meditation, relaxation and yogic diet)

Course teacher: Chandrika is a medical doctor and a Sivananda Yoga Teacher. She teaches anatomy and physiology in the Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Courses in Europe and has a keen interest in scientific research on Yoga.
