Uniting Yoga and Ayurveda 300-Hour Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training


Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences originally designed to be practiced together. Both are roadmaps that can lead us to the highest truth of our innermost self. In this training, you discover tools to enhance the quality of your yoga teaching, including potent ways to plan classes and design sequences guided by Ayurvedic principles.

This course deepens your knowledge of the relationship between yoga and Ayurveda, with classes focused on cultivating prana (life force), agni (inner fire), and ojas (vigor). While here, you participate in daily sadhanas, carve silent time for self-study, and integrate your skills in insightful supervised practicums.

You also

  • Explore the relation between panchamayakosha and the eight limbs of yoga as they relate to Ayurveda
  • Learn key postures, breathing practices, and meditation techniques for balancing the doshas (psychophysical constitutions)
  • Experience the different movements of prana, including prana, udana, samana, apana, and vyana
  • Cultivate useful Ayurvedic tools to adjust yoga class sequencing and personalize private sessions based on the season, time of day, season of life, and basic doshic imbalances.
