Why do some people love the desert while you feel most at home by the sea? Why is your way of coping with stress vastly different than your partners? Why do you self-soothe in ways that bring balance and in ways that disrupt balance? Why do you always seem to feel anxious in the Fall, murderous at the height of summer, lethargic in the Spring? How do we use our yoga practice to balance our nervous system? What does the most balanced version of you look and feel like?

Ayurveda holds these answers and more. In this 50-hour immersion, we will lay the foundations of this sister science of Yoga so you have the tools to be the most balanced version of yourself. You will also learn how to practice and teach yoga in a way that supports an energetic balance for your energetic constitution and your student’s constitution. Each session includes practice and discussion. This program is for anyone who wants to dive deeper into how Ayurveda can heal and balance you and for teachers who want to incorporate Ayurveda into their teaching skills.

These 45 hours will count towards CEUs for yoga teachers in our Practice Yoga 300-hour program.

We will cover and discuss:
The origins of Ayurveda
The five universal elements
The 3 Doshas (energetic constitutions) and how to know when we are out of balance
Balancing the Doshas through the senses, practice, pranayama, and meditation
How to practice and teach yoga for each Dosha
Dinacharya: Daily routines for health and well-being
Ritucharya: Our relationship to nature and the seasons
How to care for ourselves through the seasonal changes
6 Tastes: Food as medicine and seasonal eating
Restorative sleeping habits
Polyvagal theory and the Gunas
Ayurvedic stress reduction tools
The five movements of Prana (The Vayus)
How to balance your energy through practice for the time of day
How to balance your energy through practice through the seasonal changes
How to teach yoga from an Ayurvedic perspective
