Ayurvedic self-care as a resilient act of self-love is the departure point for this unique immersion,  geared towards strengthening your overall health, deepening your yoga practice, and increasing personal balance. Rooted in the wisdom of  Ayurveda, this program provides you tools to incorporate Ayurvedic philosophy, nutrition, self-care, yogic practices and daily routines into modern life.
Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medical system used for millenniums by yogi’s, draws inspiration from the natural world. It provides us a framework for how individual attributes and the environment affect our physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. This program focuses on self-inquiry through Ayurvedic philosophy and application of Ayurvedic principles and practices through the development of personal daily self-care routines (called dinacharya). Weaving the brilliance of yoga and Ayurveda, you will learn to create vibrant balance in your body, deeper harmony with your environment and a unique holistic lifestyle for your yourself, students and loved ones.

This program is geared towards teachers and serious yoga practitioners who are ready to deepen or build a home yoga practice, engage in daily self-care routines and commit to a yogic inspired lifestyle. For teachers, home practice and yogic lifestyle are the base for wise teaching. Teachers will also gain skills to sequence and teach according to Ayurvedic principles.
