Ayurveda Training

Yoga and Ayurveda have been sister~sciences since time immemorial.

The 85 Hour Ayurveda Training is open to everyone. It provides the theoretical and practical foundation necessary to use Ayurveda personally and/or professionally. This program is a valuable addition to a personal yoga practice and allows yoga teachers and health professionals to enrich and enhance their offerings.

In this training you’ll learn how to:

  • use Ayurveda in daily life to improve the health of mind, body and consciousness
  • integrate Ayurvedic principles into your teaching and/or personal yoga practice
  • augment and enhance your offerings as a yoga teacher and/or health practitioner by sharing safe, Tridoshic (ie. good for everyone) Ayurvedic practices with your students and/or clients

Ayurveda ~ the science of life and longevity ~ has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. The Tridosha theory of Ayurveda tells us that everything is made up of the same 5 elements (Pancha Mahabhuta) in varying amounts. In humans, this unique combination of the elements determines our Ayurvedic Constitution. We’ll learn how to recognize a person’s Ayurvedic Constitution as well as their Present State (state of imbalance). We’ll learn how to apply Ayurvedic principles for the recovery and maintenance of health ~ mind, body and consciousness. We’ll discover how to create a personalized diet, daily routine and exercise regimen based on the needs of the individual; based on their unique Ayurvedic Constitution and Present State.

AyurYoga fuses the wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga and applies it to our asana practice. We’ll look at how we can exponentially increase the benefits of our practice (and that of our students), not necessarily by doing different postures but by doing postures differently.

Based on Tridosha Theory, we’ll explore a variety of ways to modify postures and practices for varying results and purposes, such as the following:

  • maintaining mind-body balance throughout the changing seasons
  • reducing the discomfort of acute emotional turbulence and seasonal illnesses
  • accommodating pregnancy, youth and old age
  • morning/energizing; midday/balancing; evening/relaxing and restorative
