Ayurveda Body Treatments Certification Course

Mary Ann Johnson (Isvari) and Denise Chapman (Vidya)
Registration is closed for this course.
Tuition: $890

Learn the deeply regenerative and healing techniques of Ayurveda body treatments, also known as “Bliss Therapy.”

In this comprehensive training, you will learn traditional oil massage (abhyanga); the technique of pouring oil over the forehead (shirodhara); and how to introduce oil into the nasal passages (nasya). Providing deep detoxification, these treatments allow for the rejuvenation and balance of the body, mind, and spirit. The application of these treatments is taught as a spiritual practice for both client and practitioner.

Course topics include:

  • The history and philosophy of Ayurveda
  • The three great qualities (maha bhutu), five elements (maha guna), 10 pairs of qualities (guna), and three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha)
  • Tissue formation (dhatu) and the channels of bodily systems (srota), digestion (agni), toxin formation (ama) and waste elimination (mala)
  • Ayurvedic and yogic psychology
  • Disease processes and their respective treatments with Ayurvedic bodywork

A therapeutic experience in itself, this course is designed as an extensive training for massage therapists, Ayurveda practitioners, yoga teachers, and all others who have a professional or personal interest in the ancient techniques of Ayurveda body treatments.
