10/20 Ayurveda as Lifestyle Medicine

October 20 @ 8:30 am - 6:30 pm


Course Overview

For all students, learn about Ayurveda’s key to achieving abundant health and vitality.

It is the regularity of our day to day actions and habits that can either provide the foundation of wellness or dis-ease.  Discover Ayurveda, the planet’s oldest, nature-based, medical system and the sister science of Yoga. In this 9 hour workshop, for the curious and yoga teachers we will look at The Ayurvedic paradigm as it relates to the three body types or doshas and formulate ways to individualize the tools of yoga to support each student in their practice taking into account the individual, their stage of life, the season, and the individuals life goals.

Ayurveda recognizes that each person is born with a unique physical, psychological and emotional constitution or prakruti. Through our daily relationships, practices, and the beliefs that shape them, our constitutions can become imbalanced, leading to disease.

Ayurveda’s key to achieving abundant health and vitality is to recognize our lack of harmony or vikruti in one or more of these areas. Then, under the guidance of an experienced practitioner, we take steps to restore our natural constitutional balance. Ayurveda doesn’t offer a “magic bullet” cure. This perennial science of living teaches us to accept our responsibility ‘to’ rather than ‘for’ our own physical, mental and emotional condition.

Simply put, positive change is the result of conscious, consistent practice. The roadmap for wellness is Tri-Dosha, or ‘three constitutions’ theory, as expressed in nature and the individual. This profound, pervasive paradigm points to age and season- appropriate behaviors aligning us with the natural healing forces which create healthier, more vibrant versions of ourselves.

In this workshop, we will explore:
  • The Roots of Āyurveda
  • The Āyurveda-Yoga Connection: Sāmkhya
  • The Tri-Doshic Theory: Turning Philosophy into Medicine
  • Examining the Doshas as the basis of Health and Disease
  • Cikitsa: Personalizing Medicine
  • Dinacarya: Daily Living as Medicine
  • Āhāra & Pāthya: Food as Medicine
  • Mānasika Cikitsa: Āyurvedic & Yogic Psychology
  • Yoga Therapy through the Eyes of Āyurveda: One size does not fit all.
