Key Underlying Health Issues & Core Principles of Healing

Lesson Overview

In this lesson, we take a big-picture look at key issues that underlie most dis-ease, and review verifiable healing principles.


Be familiar with key issues that underlie most dis-ease, including chronic stress and inflammation, and review verifiable principles of healing, including specific lifestyle factors that restore the body’s natural healing forces.


Name 5 issues that typically underlie dis-ease. Cite 5 factual principles that empower the healing process. Explain why students don’t need to be informed about these issues in order to begin experiencing better health and well-being. When students want more information, explain what can impede their quest, and what can be particularly helpful. Explore knowledge and principles of adaptive yoga that will help teachers to maximize their effectiveness. Discuss pressures and issues that have compromised the integrity of yoga teachings, but how the true essence and power of yoga remains intact and accessible.
