For the first-time ever, The American Meditation Institute (AMI) will host Leonard Perlmutter’s online summer retreat that will transform each attendee’s home into an oasis of learning, healing and introspection. This physician CME accredited foundation course of yoga science as mind/body medicine will include topics on AMI Meditation, stress and pain management, diaphragmatic breathing, easy-gentle yoga, ayurveda, yoga psychology and mind optimization practices. The five-day curriculum held from July 29 to August 2, is designed for first-time and experienced meditators from all walks of life, and also offers 18 continuing medical education credits (CMEs) for physicians, nurses and other health care professionals.
AMI’s new online retreat will enable attendees to participate from the comfort and security of their homes. This engaging five-day experience will include the complete foundation curriculum of yoga science through an entertaining mix of live lectures and panel discussions, helpful video instruction, engaging at-home assignments, daily social hours for networking with other attendees––as well as private one-on-one consultations with AMI founder Leonard Perlmutter. By week’s end, each participant will have received a set of 36 practical tools that can empower conscious, discriminating and reliable choices to enhance health and well-being, creativity and optimism. Regardless of how challenging the circumstances brought about by COVID-19 might feel today, the science of yoga taught at this online retreat can help.
The core “Heart and Science of Yoga” online retreat curriculum has been endorsed by noted medical pioneers Dr. Oz (Mehmet Oz, MD), Dean Ornish MD, Bernie Siegel, MD and Larry Dossey, MD, and has been certified by the American Medical Association and American Nurses Association to provide continuing medical education credits for health care practitioners in attendance.
Meditation master and retreat host Perlmutter (Ram Lev) is one of the world’s leading authorities on integrating the principles and practices of yoga science into modern life. Perlmutter has taught on the faculties of the New England Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine, the Himalayan Yoga Teachers Association and the College of Saint Rose. He is a disciple of holistic health pioneer Swami Rama of the Himalayas, the Yoga scientist who, in laboratory conditions at the Menninger Institute, demonstrated that blood pressure, heart rate and the autonomic nervous system could be voluntarily controlled. Perlmutter has presented Yoga Science courses at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the Albany Medical College, the Commonwealth Club of California, “The New York Times” Yoga Forum, and the United States Military Academy at West Point.
“This new kind of online retreat format has been shaped by our desire to provide each participant a meaningful and rewarding retreat experience as they convert their own home into an oasis of learning, healing and introspection,” said Perlmutter.
