Yoga and Ayurveda
200 Hour - Holistic Instructor Program
Ayu-Yoga recognizes that each individual has a unique mind-body-spirit framework that requires the fundamentals of breath, water and food to support its existence here, and beyond. Although we live in a physical world, we also recognize that we have a commitment to ourselves.
The relationship between the physical Self, from the outermost Kosha to the spiritual Self, the innermost Kosha, can become interrupted with challenges, hardships, lack of support and the responsibilities of daily life.
The divine fusion of Ayurveda & Yoga provides us with the wisdom, support, practice and tools, to create clarity and connection between our inner and outer world. Yoga is an inner journey that allows us to grow within, creating self-integration. Ayurveda is an inner experience that acknowledges our unique needs, and leads us toward self-balance. This beautiful relationship, between Ayurveda & Yoga, helps us to create harmony and unification; connecting the inner and outer Self to support the discovery of the true nature of our being.
Students will learn to identify the Dosha Prakruti or the Bio Energetic constitution, along with specific care, lifestyle and appropriate diets that will support the mind-body-spirit balance. Yoga is fundamentally an inner inquiry; thus students will be encouraged both to be aware of their personal checkpoints, and to explore how each yoga posture feels and manifests within their body.
Focus will be given to the exploration, analysis and practice of the fundamentals of Asana, Ayurvedic Asana, personal development, communication and the individual integration of Ayurveda and Yoga into each students daily life practice.
Students will also learn the integration of the mind-body-spirit through the understanding of the introduction of the Chakras, Nadis and Marmas, the flow of Pranayama and the Integration of five senses with Mantra, Mudras and Meditation.
