Ayurveda & Yoga Therapy

DESCRIPTION

This module Ayurveda Healing for Yoga Therapy Level I with Coen van der Kroon and Liese van Dam is a thorough introduction to the basic principles of Ayurveda and how to connect them to yoga.

The course will include the following:

• You will get to know the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) and you will learn how they work and how you can use them in your daily life.

• We will introduce the concept of agni, and how it relates to our lifestyle, our digestion as well as our thinking.

Nutrition and cooking are intimately connected with “agni” and we will also include an online demonstration of how to cook a few specific recipes and will share recipes with you.

• We will bring into our practice what we learn: vata, pitta, kapha and agni and how these are applied to asana and pranayama through assignments.

“Each day will start with a yoga practice and you will also be completing assignments individually and in small groups online. This will support the integration of Ayurvedic principles into your yoga practice and work with clients”.

• You will learn how ayurvedic and yogic anatomy and physiology have their own ancient terminology and how this terminology relates to body, mind and soul.
• Another important red line through this seminar is that of the six tastes (Rasa’s). The six tastes together constitute the story of our life.
