The language used in Ayurveda can be perceived as challenging to those outside of Eastern culture. However, behind that language lies a vast wealth of knowledge which gives valuable instruction for enhancing life. Ayurveda instructs us on which substances, qualities and actions are life-enhancing, and which are not.
The AYTT transforms this Ayurvedic knowledge into easy to absorb nuggets of wisdom that will help you to significantly enhance your Yoga teaching. By participating in the AYTT, Yoga teachers will learn to complement Yoga asana (posture) with Ayurveda wisdom.
The Ayurveda teachings will reveal how optimum health can be achieved through an understanding of the energy points (marmas) and energy channels (nadis) in the body, together with an understanding of the 3 biological humors (doshas) which make up each individual’s constitution (prakruti and vikruti). Participants will gain a full understanding of the impact that the marmas and nadis have on individual doshas. This teaching will delve further into the srotas (channels within the body through which nutrients, tissues and wastes move) and how these are impacted by asana. A detailed list of the subject matter that will be covered is below – see What You Will Learn (make this a link to the section below)
This knowledge will enable Yoga teachers to significantly “up their game” in the Yoga teaching arena, bringing increased value to their clients through an enhanced offering. In addition to instructing clients on the use of asana to improve body tone and strength, Yoga teachers will be able to impart knowledge on the healing ability of the mind and body.
While participating in the AYTT, you will be within a community of like-minded individuals, supporting each other on a journey of growth, healing, learning and love.
The AYTT is a journey of personal growth which develops your own Yoga practice on a physical, mental and spiritual level. You will learn of the Ayurveda philosophies of non-violence, service and ethical behavior as a practicing yogi. In so doing, you become a living example of yogic living to your students and to the world.
