Nov 29-Dec 11, 2017 (100 hours)
Main Faculty: Balaram Chandra
Supported by Emma Kate Veader & Shantaya Team
In this 100-hour course on Yoga Ayurveda, Balaram Chandra introduces a wide range of Ayurvedic principles and practices while placing them into context of our daily patterns and lifestyle.
Ayurveda आयुर्वेद is not a new or old system to be implemented but a “Vision”(veda) of the simple patterns in “Life” (ayu) which are already present. Yoga is a dynamic system which Ayurveda utilizes as a means to enhance health, maintain health, or to bring oneself into balance by using easily available means, such as:
- The Body – all of it’s parts and functions
- The Breath – functions and supports of Vayu (air) and Prana
- The Mind – all of it’s parts and functions (chitta)
- The Soul – Awareness/Consciousness
- All encompassing Spirit/Divinity and all of it’s parts and functions
It is possible to predict, observe, and reflect upon the influences of all experienced substances and all actions expressed. The intelligent person accepts that everything is influencing and will influence all aspects of your life, whether it is immediately perceivable or not. All parts of your Body, your Mind, and your Behavior are affected and may or may not assist in the balancing of various needs of life and the achievement of desires. We seek to develop understanding of and mastery of all gross and subtle substance and functions of the Human body through the Yoga Tradition and Ayurveda. The goal of Ayurveda is to be established in Swastha (health).
