With Victoria (Tory) Hyndman

Discover the power of the science of sound.   Mantra (meaning “to transcend") is the science of sound. Mantras are formulas that are vibrations of cosmic prāna (energy) moulding and shaping our inner space which help us go beyond the different layers of the mind and ego (mano, chitta, buddha and ahamkara).

Ayurvedic Nutrition Course

With Liese van Dam

Starting on 08 October 2021

This Ayurvedic nutrition course is for those who want to know what Ayurvedic nutrition can mean for them in modern Western life. Going deeply into the basics of classical Ayurvedic nutrition, this course translates ancient knowledge into whatever is needed here and now in the West.   This is a unique feature of this course: modern nutrition has gone haywire and presents a lot of difficult issues. Many of these issues will be addressed in this course from a modern Ayurvedic perspective. The purpose of this course is to offer in-depth training in Ayurvedic nutrition and the emphasis in this course is to learn how to implement the Ayurvedic principles regarding nutrition in your own personal life. And you will learn how to give simple – yet profound – advice to friends and family who would like to learn from you.   The Delight Academy values traditional methods of learning Ayurveda and therefore each day the teacher commences with the singing of a mantra to create an atmosphere of optimal learning. Teaching days include theory and supportive assignments to help you reflect on the knowledge and integrate the learned into your daily life.   For qualified health professionals who actively work with clients and who would like to learn about Ayurveda: this course can serve as a great addition to integrate the knowledge of Ayurvedic nutrition into your professional life.   Yoga & Ayurveda are complementary sciences - often referred to as sister sciences. This course can also be of added value for yoga teachers wanting to inform their students about basic Ayurvedic principles regarding nutrition.   What you will learn: This course has been taught by the teachers of Delight Academy (and before that by The Academy of Ayurvedic Studies) since 2004. The course combines classroom hours with self-study at home and 2 fun hands-on training days in a cooking studio where you will experience Ayurvedic cooking yourself.   You will walk out of this course with: A very good and thorough understanding of Ayurvedic nutrition Clear guidelines for applying this in your own life Confidence to advise friends and family about the basic principles of Ayurvedic nutrition The joy to apply Ayurvedic principles to any way of cooking, from Indian recipes to any western recipes Program Outline The Tridosha theory (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) The five elements and the six tastes The concept of time throughout the day, year and life Sattva, Rajas and Tamas and energetic qualities of food The important principles of Ayurveda nutrition, valid for all people Tridosha theory applied to the person - physical and psychological profiles Ayurvedic diagnosis - which type are you?
