I get asked ALL THE TIME about when I will create an Introduction to Ayurveda course and where can you go to learn more specifics about Ayurveda. So I was really excited when Yoga Journal came to me with this idea to do 3 eCourses on the basics of Ayurveda segmented by season and dosha qualities. I thought “YES! This is perfect.” Then to make it even more profound and information-packed, we have my good friend Larissa Hall-Carlson, who is the former dean of the School of Ayurveda at Kripalu, teaching the yoga poses for each session!
If Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and means “the science of life,” why don’t we use it more in the yoga studio and in life? This course demystifies the most elemental and mind-body balancing ancient science known to yogis. Each four-week program, or year-long package, allows you to learn about your body’s natural needs through each season and how to heal, eat, cook and cleanse for true balance. In addition, enjoy self-care demonstration techniques adapted to your individual dosha and signature yoga practices and poses you can use at home or as a teacher.
Ayurveda 101 is split up into 3 sessions – Spring, Summer and Winter. You can decide to only take the course for the season or dosha you’re interested in, or you can challenge yourself to learn Ayurveda for all 3 seasons.
Spring Session Starts April 3rd!
Feeling congested, lethargic, heavy? LifeSpa’s Dr. John Douillard and Kripalu’s Larissa Carlson will take you through 4 weeks of energetic and healing practices, self-care tips, and diet help. You’ll feel lighter and more lively as you navigate the transformation that comes with the changing weather in March, April, May, and June—considered kapha season in Ayurveda. These practices are also good year-round if you are experiencing an excess of kapha, which can manifest as congestion, weight gain, water retention, lack of motivation, foggy thinking, sluggishness, and feeling possessive and stubborn.
NOTE: This course qualifies for 30 Yoga Alliance CEUs.
