The Atman Yoga School® offers intensive 20 hour weekend trainings in Ayurveda.
As the sister science of yoga, ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic healing modality from India that uses lifestyle, food, herbs, mantras, and yoga to help individuals address their medical concerns and health issues. Ayurveda aims to bring balance into the body, mind, and spirit through the removal of dis-ease, and by remembering our own true nature. Ayurvedic treatments utilize all of the five senses, and treat the root cause of dis-ease, not just the symptoms of illness like much of allopathic medicine. It focuses on nourishment, rejuvenation, and energy management, and teaches practitioners how to minimize/remove ama (toxins) while building ojas (healthy energy reserves). Incorporate ayurvedic practices into your daily life to create health, balance, and harmony in your body, mind, and spirit.
20-HOUR TRAINING //
During this 20-Hour training, learn the fundamentals of ayurveda, and how to incorporate ayurvedic practices into your daily life and into your yoga practice. Topics include: doshas, prakruti vs. vikruti, dinacharya (self-care), ayurvedic nutrition, chikitsa (treament), the vayus and ayurveda yoga therapy/ayurvedic sequencing. Each day of the training features an asana class to balance each of the three doshas: vata balancing, pitta balancing, and kapha balancing.
FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS //
While this training is designed with current yoga teachers in mind, it is open to all students of yoga with a regular yoga practice. It is recommended that non-teachers who wish to participate in the training have 1-2 years of a consistent yoga practice, in order to get the most out of the training. All participants of the Ayurveda Intensive will receive a certificate of training from the Atman Yoga School, which counts as 20 hours of CEUs (Continuing Education Units) for certified yoga teachers.
