Learn how to meet the special needs of cardiac patients. This curriculum is both instructional and experiential and is ideal for yoga teachers and health professionals who would like to safely share yoga with people living with heart disease. Specific topics include: the yogic view of disease, lifestyle and dietary considerations, risk factors, the physiology and psycho-social aspects of heart disease, and the adaptation of postures and breathing practices and relaxation techniques.

Nischala Devi shares her years of experience working with the healthful benefits of yoga, teaching visualization, breathing and meditation, as well as providing the classic steps for yoga’s classical poses.

About Harshada -

D. Harshada Wagner is an author, meditation teacher, and transformational guide who has dedicated his life to the exploration of human consciousness. He is the founder and director of Living Meditation, based in New York City and travels widely working with people from all walks of life from all over the world.

Wagner is on the faculties of Kripalu and Omega institutes where he regularly offers retreats and workshops, and is one of the most viewed teachers on the very popular

He began his teaching career early as a yoga and meditation teacher in Chicago almost 20 years ago and since become a truly unique and highly marketable “teacher of the people”. Wagner’s teaching style is disarmingly informal and friendly, but has the ability to take people into deep levels of self-exploration. His speaking and writing style is conversational and he’s not shy about throwing in the occasional four letter word. Some have referred to his specialty as “no bullshit spirituality”. In a industry of lofty gurus and soft-spoken new age workshop leaders, Wagner stands out with his no-nonsense, all-American style.

Wagner is classically trained in the wisdom traditions of India, and is a master of meditation, but his teachings come from his many years helping people transform their lives and his own personal process of transformation.

When he’s not teaching or writing, Wagner enjoys motorcycling and being a dad. Currently he is authoring a book on their spiritual lives of men.
