A Yogic Approach to Empowering our clients to Self-heal
How can the ancient Indian philosophy of “Yog” enrich modern day coaching?
Behind the seemingly diverse goals of clients we work with, is a common, transformational agenda – to transcend boundaries imposed by limiting beliefs, find freedom through self-expression and thus come closer to living their own potential. This freedom, called Moksha in Sanskrit, is what the ancient Indian philosophy of Yog offers. Yogi Swami Vivekanand defined Yoga as a means of compressing one’s evolution into a single life or a few years or even a few months of bodily existence. Yog is not Yoga, a set of Instagram-ready physical contortions for flexibility, strength and beauty.
Discover the multi-dimensional, Yogic view of human existence and a range of tools that coaches and clients can practice, within and outside sessions, to harmonize the different dimensions of their being. Use the overarching frameworks to discover tools in your own cultural or social heritage.
