Embodying the Principles of Ayurveda in Yoga Therapy 800-Hour Professional Yoga Therapist Program, Module 8

In this intensive program that focuses on the relationship between yoga and Ayurveda, you gain an in-depth understanding of the philosophical basis for yoga and Ayurveda practices within the Samkhya system. Through an exploration of Ayurvedic principles, the five elements, and the methods and techniques of yoga, you learn how to unite these two complementary systems into a methodology for re-establishing balance in your work as a yoga therapist.

Explore the first two pillars of health in Ayurveda: ahara (food) and vihara (lifestyle), and learn to integrate these pillars with the bahiranga (external) limbs of yoga. Your skill in the practical application of Ayurveda is augmented through working with the six tastes, including food combining, and the Integrative Yoga Therapy protocol for balancing the mind using Ayurvedic psychology.
