Ayurveda is the traditional natural medicine of India. It takes into account each person’s individual mind/body characteristics when giving advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle changes to help restore balance. Yoga teachers who learn about Ayurveda can be more effective by applying a holistic and individualized approach for each student.
Ayurveda addresses all of the issues that may lead to disease in the body and mind including viral causes, aspects of diet, seasonal patterns, natural constitution (body types or Doshas) and lifestyle choices. For example, there is not just one type of yoga that is suitable for every student. Our teacher training course and workshops show teachers how to apply Ayurvedic wisdom in their own lives and then they learn how to help others reconnect to natural healing through the resources of this ancient healing science.
