Basics of Ayurveda – Online
June 3 @ 6:00 pm - June 15 @ 9:00 pm
with Durga Leela, E-RYT 500
JUNE 3 – 15, 2021
June 3–15 and Q&A on Aug. 11
For everyone, especially Yoga teachers, therapists, and health professionals
Basics of Yoga and Ayurveda – Online provides a holistic model of Yoga therapy based upon Ayurveda, the medical aspect of the Yoga tradition.
Modern practitioners have tried to create therapies based on Yoga, but, until now, these therapies have not included Ayurveda or were restricted to asana (postures) only. Such models are limited, as they do not reflect the complete Yoga tradition or the Ayurvedic components of Yoga philosophy and psychology.
Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences for healing and transformation throughout all levels of our being: Ayurveda focuses on the treatment (chikitsa) of the body and mind, while the goal of Yoga is self-development and realization.
Ayurveda is recognized as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine, and its popularity is spreading in the west. This foundational online course will introduce you to Ayurvedic concepts and language.
Topics of study include:
Philosophy of Ayurveda
Fundamental Ayurvedic qualities of the universe: three gunas, five elements, three doshas, twenty qualities, five sub-doshas, and three subtle doshas: prana, tejas, and ojas
Digestion (agni) and elimination (mala)
Constitutional examination and mental nature
