Outline of Course
Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences; when integrated form an important system for promoting vitality, exceptional health and healing. Traditional Ayurveda focuses more on the treatment side (Chikitsa) for body and mind, while traditional Yoga aims more at self-development and Self-realisation (Sadhana). Today modern Yoga has 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 consequences of Yoga philosophy and psychology. This course aims to provide a more traditional model of practical Yoga therapy based upon Ayurveda, the medical aspect of the Yoga tradition through both theoretical and practical activities. Ayurveda is now recognised as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine available and its popularity is spreading throughout the world.
This introductory 6 week program covers aspects of lifestyle & ethics, basic anatomy & physiology as well as techniques, training & practice associated with the two ancient traditions.
