Healthy Heart Program
A Yoga Therapy Program for Stress-related illness
The Healthy Heart Program was first implemented in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, in 2005 by the Integrative Yoga Institute at Enchanted Mountain Center in partnership with public health services of the Brazilian government. This 12-week program is offered to participants in public health settings who would not normally have access to Yoga-based programs. The program focuses on healing the heart at physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual levels, for the treatment of chronic stress-related conditions commonly seen in Brazilian public health settings including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety and insomnia.
