Today was the last day of the two weeks practical technique classes. The last day is always the saddest day for us as the school feels and looks so empty without all these energetic students.

We love our students and miss them greatly.

Wish you all success in your new chosen career and do hope to see you soon.

We have more technique instructors than any other school

Did you know we have more technique instructors than any other schools of osteopathy?

Did you know most schools have only one technique instructor?

Did you know we are the only ones who have two instructors dedicated to visceral manipulation techniques?

Osteopathy Business Tip # 37 - Energize Your Brain

You need to unplug your brain once in a while. This would reset your brain and has a number benefits such as increasing your creativity which helps you become more successful in whatever you do.

A sure way to energizing your brain is having regular silence retreats. I usually take a weekend off to be by myself surrounded by nature, trees and water, sun & the moon, wind & the birds, with no one to talk to, no TV, no music, no radio, no internet, no mobile and no people. 

The silence has amazing healing power. It allows you to tap into your inner self where your conscious awaits you. When there is no noise, your inner self speaks with you. What you hear is priceless wisdom.

If you want to become more creative and if you want to improve your brain power, then spend a couple of days by yourself every month surrounded by nature with no people contact of any sort.

I was in a silence retreat last week and took these photos there. You become one with nature, when you are alone with it. Where else you can find a red moon, beautiful red sunrise, & sparkling water?

Testimonial from a Yoga Teacher

Testimonial from a Yoga Teacher:
Dear Dr.Pourgol,

Greeting to you!
First of All ,My humble gratitude to you and the team for providing me with an informative online course which I was looking forward for as a Yoga therapist. I thought it is equally important for a profession of my kind to be informed on the anatomical aspect of Human Body in a fairly detailed manner, to be able to make a good alternative medicine health professional and therefore chose to join this course
I have thoroughly enjoyed the lectures sessions particularly all of yours and Dr.Habibinia's on Nutrition. They have been very informative and helping my family, students and myself  in maintaining a reasonably good health. 

Wishing you a great day.

Warm regards

Lalitha Viswanath
