O Youtube channel of Bahiana is providing free classes on Integrative and Complementary Practices (PICS), offered by the Center for Integrative and Complementary Practices of Bahiana (CEPICS). "The practices are systems and resources that seek to stimulate natural mechanisms for the prevention of injuries and health recovery, through effective and safe technologies, with an emphasis on welcoming listening, on the development of the therapeutic bond and on the integration of the human being with the environment environment and society”, as described by Professor Renata Roseghini, CEPICS coordinator Bahiana.
Renata Roseghini explains that the PICS also develop the perspective of valuing the individual's role in their health, including several self-care guidelines. In this way, CEPICS carries out several teaching and extension actions, raising awareness in the academic community and in care practices, both in institutional spaces and in external events. The center was inaugurated in January 2018 and includes several professors, students, graduates, employees of the Bahiana and external partners, members of RECEPICS-BA.
During the pandemic and social distancing, CEPICS partners, in partnership with Bahiana, are producing a series of videos of integrative practices to help maintain the body-mind-spirit balance, since the moment is challenging for maintaining health, in particular, mental health. “We started with the practice of Yoga and meditation, but we will have several contributions, including from professors and students of the Post-Graduation course in PICS at the Bahiana”, clarifies Renata Roseghini. The videos with the Yoga classes taught by teacher Rosana Politano are already on Youtube channel.
