Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences for healing, integration and transformation on all levels of our being. Traditional Ayurveda focuses more on the treatment side of this process (Chikitsa) for body and mind, while Traditional Yoga aims more at self-development and Self-realization (Sadhana). This comprehensive program covers the main Ayurvedic concepts and language of the doshas, subdoshas, dhatus(tissues), malas (waste products), srota-systems (physical channels) and agnis (digestive capacity of the body and mind).
Modern Yoga has sometimes tried to create a therapeutic model, but this is largely apart from Ayurveda or restricted to asana only. Such a model is limited and seldom reflects the greater Yoga tradition or the Ayurvedic ramifications of Yoga philosophy and psychology. This course aims at providing a more traditional model of Yoga therapy based upon Ayurveda, the medical aspect of the Yoga tradition. Ayurveda is now recognized as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine available and its popularity is spreading throughout the world.
This is a thorough, foundational course for students based on the books and distance learning programs of Acharya David Frawley and taught in the Sivananda yoga tradition. The course is designed for students of all kinds. There is no required medical background for those wishing to take the course. You may already have a background in Yoga, such as gained by graduates of our TTC or some kind of previous Yoga training.
The goal of the course is to provide students a foundation in Ayurveda. The course qualifies a person to function as an 'Ayurvedic Life-Style Counselor', assessing Ayurvedic constitutional types and how to guide people to balance through daily health regimens and life-style recommendations. You’ll be introduced to the basic assessment of Constitutional types and be able to educate your students/clients on balance through understanding themselves through Ayurvedic principles.
This is the first in a series of modules offered by the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization in collaboration with Acharya David Frawley (Vamadeva). The course manuals are derived from the correspondence courses of the American Institute of Vedic Studies.
The aim is to give (Sivananda) TTC graduates and other yoga teachers a thorough foundational knowledge of how Ayurveda helps apply Yoga therapeutically. Therapy should be from a holistic view of the vast healing potential of the sister sciences, not an asana approach to yoga therapy.
