Intro to Ayurveda – Online
with Durga Leela, E-RYT 500
June 3 - 6, 2021
Join Durga Leela, founder of Yoga of Recovery®, for an introduction to Ayurveda, the Eastern holistic healing science. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences for healing and transformation throughout all levels of our being: Ayurveda focuses on the treatment (chikitsa) of the body and mind, while the goal of Yoga is self-development and realization.
Ayurveda is recognized as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine, and its popularity is spreading in the west. This foundational online workshop will introduce you to Ayurvedic concepts and language.
Topics of study include:
- Philosophy of Ayurveda
- Fundamental Ayurvedic qualities of the universe: three gunas, five elements, and three doshas
- Constitutional examination and mental nature
This workshop is part of Basics of Ayurveda – Online on June 3–15, 2021, a longer, more in-depth course on Ayurveda. If you would like to go deeper in your study of a holistic model of Yoga therapy based upon Ayurveda, you have the option to register for the longer course.
Live sessions with Durga on Thursday and Friday at 6–9 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 am–2:30 pm and 4–7 pm ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until August 1.
In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talks with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
