NEW! Yoga & Ayurveda Wellness Counselor Certification Course

Would you like to integrate Ayurveda into your life and practice? We are delighted to let you know of our new ”Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Counselors Certification Course“, taught by Durga Leela and Sita Chaitanya, which trains and certifies Ayurveda Wellness Consultants. The course will take place at the ashram May 10 – 19, 2013. This is an ideal program for you to learn how to assist yourself and others in implementing Ayurvedic dietary, behavioral, and lifestyle recommendations.

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.
