Ayurveda & Yoga Therapy

DESCRIPTION

The Ayurveda for Yoga Therapy module 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 Therapy.
The coursework will include the following:

  • Information on the three doshas, (Vata, pitta and Kapha), how they work and how they apply to daily life.
    An introduction to the concept of Agni, and how it relates to our lifestyle, our digestion and our thinking.
  • An online cooking demonstration with recipes, which will deepen your understanding of how Agni is intimately connected with nutrition.
  • Practical applications of Vata, pitta, Kapha and Agni to asana and pranayama, through assignments.
  • The ancient terminology of ayurvedic and yogic anatomy and physiology and how this terminology relates to body, mind and soul.
  • The six tastes (rasas) and how they constitute the story of our lives.

“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 your work with clients”.
