Most of us recognize that our health cannot be separated from what we eat, what we do, and what we think. Ayurveda provides us with a system for understanding the energies and qualities that are set in motion by our daily living practices, so that we can use them to counteract or prevent the imbalances that cause disease. Ayurveda is becoming better known in the West and its influence is growing rapidly. Those who learn Ayurveda today will be pioneers of this movement that will continue to grow significantly in the future.
This program is a thorough, foundational course for students based on the books and distance learning programs of Dr. David Frawley (Vamadeva). The course is designed for students of all kinds. There is no required medical background for those wishing to take the course although knowledge of Ayurveda can enhance the practice of medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurses, psychologists, yoga therapists/teachers, nutritional counselors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and other health practitioners.
This course offers yoga teachers an opportunity to integrate the sister sciences of yoga and Ayurveda into a holistic approach to healing: 100-hour certification awarded jointly from the Sivananda Organization and The American Institute of Vedic Studies upon successful completion.
