During the webinar we will explore the following topics that will serve the practitioners both in personal life and in their work with their clients:
- The problem is information overload and the lack of actual habit transformations. Why is it hard for people to stick to what we know our body truly needs to thrive? Why can't we keep our promises to ourselves and engage in self-sabotage? How can we support our clients in creating a step by step habit change that allows to maintain optimal wellbeing. What does it take to create new habits that stick.
- Discipline: where does it come from and why do we lack it? What does our Prana and our attention have to do with it. Decision-making fatigue and how to prevent it.
- Sense organs, desires and cravings - Raga. What does it mean and how we can learn to use our sense organs to support our health. Cultivating Santosha - where to begin. Can we learn to create a sense of satisfaction and eat and work from that state?
- Role of Buddhi and Manas in habits, discernment, and living life free from self-sabotage. How we can strengthen Buddhi in daily living and become free of the old patterns?
