  1. Emotional Blockage Treatment

Each and every individual goes through various kinds of emotions in their life. What are emotions? It is basically our way of expression: it may be positive or negative. We experience anger, anxiety, stress, sadness ect. Sometimes, instead of expressing our emotions, we suppress them. They begin to accumulate in our body at various parts such as calf muscles, thighs, hamstrings and back. These accumulated emotions results in energy blockages and various kinds of physical as well as mental diseases.

Through Emotional Blockage Treatment we can remove such accumulated energy blocks and feel more light, free and relaxed. Negativity is removed quickly and the body becomes more flexible.

The Emotional Blockage Treatment was invented by Swami Bipin Gyan.

It is an optional part of the 100 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and requires discipline and surrender.
