The Training

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.

What you will learn: In this program for experienced yoga practitioners and teachers led by Victoria Raven Hyndman, you will deepen your experience of 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 and teach according to these laws of nature, enabling you and your students 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, but also different yoga practices. The focus of this training for teachers 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).

The longer we practice, the deeper we can experience how beside asana, also our pranayama, mantra and mudra practices are windows for further refining and attuning on a more subtle layer. Our yoga path is not only about learning, but also about unlearning practices, according to what supports us best from moment to moment.

This training is designed for regular/experienced yoga practitioners and/or yoga teachers who wish to incorporate the foundations of Ayurveda into their yoga practice and teaching. It offers insight into the more subtle layers of Ayurvedic Yoga to (un)learn how to practice based on Ayurvedic principles for your own benefit and those of your students.

The best way of learning and integrating anything into our life is through direct experience. This training will be mainly experiential in nature. Although a digital reader will be provided to process the theory (outside of the training hours), it is recommended to bring an open mind, humility and humour, beside a good journal to record not only the training content, but also the transformative insights it can offer for your own life.

Program Outline 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.

Extra Hours 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, and to read back the theory in the reader.

These 50 hours are part of the Delight Yoga Advanced Teacher Training, however, this is not in itself a teacher training program.
