This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.
Yoga & Ayurveda are really impossible to bring apart, they are an inseparable pair, they are the union of the Universal Wisdom. The union of these two sciences brings forth a system of healing for physical, mental, and spiritual health and happiness. The best way of learning and integrating anything into our life is through direct experience.
What you will learn:
In this program led by Victoria Raven Hyndman, you will experience how we are all made up of nature's five great elements, the Pancha Mahabhutas (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth) and how to live according to these laws of nature, enabling us to meet our fullest individual potential.
Though we are all made up of the exact same elements, we each contain different amounts of each element, therefore each one of us being a unique expression of nature. As a result, we all need different foods, herbs, healing remedies, lifestyles, and yoga practices.
The focus of this course is on how to apply the tools offered by Ayurveda for both preventative and healing purposes for the mind, body and spirit through yoga asana, meditation, pranayama, mudra (specific hand gestures which activate different energies in the physical and mental bodies), mantra (energetic sounds), and marma (energetic points on the body).
This training is designed for experienced yoga practitioners and/or yoga teachers who wish to incorporate the foundations of Ayurveda into their yoga practice and teaching.
- Discover how to recognize your individual born nature (Prakruti).
- Learn how to recognize which dosha is out of balance in the physical and/or mental body (Vikruti).
- Apply techniques in the asana practice to rebalance the dosha that is increased.
- Discover what type of foods and home remedies will support your born nature and any present imbalance.
- Learn how to recognize which constitution and possible imbalance is present in your students, friends, family and colleagues which will help you develop compassion and understanding of others and how to deal with them.
Plan some extra time each day to incorporate and apply the suggested morning routine into your daily life, plus a 30-minute sit to reflect on the day from the Ayurvedic perspective in order to understand, digest, and absorb the new insights.
These 50 hours are part of the Delight Yoga Advanced Teacher Training, however, this is not in itself a teacher training program.
- At least 1 year of regular yoga practice (minimum three times per week asana practice).
This training is designed for regular yoga practitioners and/or yoga teachers who wish to incorporate the foundations of Ayurveda into their yoga practice and teaching.
