FOUNDATIONS OF AYURVEDA
(up to 9 hours CEUs / towards 300 hour module)
with Emily Glaser, RN, BSN
Three Saturdays, live-streamed, 12-3pm
October 9, 16 & 23, 2021
This course will provide an introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine so that you can understand the concept behind doshic theory (vata-pitta-kapha). We will look at the patterns of disease according to Ayurveda and how we can find healing through practices of diet & lifestyle routines.
The promise of Ayurveda, India’s five-thousand-year-old system of health and healing, is to awaken our own inspiration to higher living and alignment with Nature’s intelligence. Health is a reality, an underlying natural state of being. Together we will develop a vocabulary that will allow you to relate with a different consciousness to the 5 elements and the qualities of the world in which we live.
Our study will teach you to how to better understand your unique Ayurvedic blueprint and from that foundation build a healthy, creative, and conscious way of living, from right diet and exercise to right thinking and meditation.
Ayurveda can inspire us to masterful living, encompassing the freedom that comes from embracing health consciousness, self-determination, and Nature’s blessings to proactively influence the course of our health and well-being.
Ayurveda takes the wisdom of yoga and its philosophy of the unity of existence and unfolds it relative to both physical and psychological health and disease. It is the medical side of yogic thought and healing that many are seeking today. As such, it naturally leads us to the practice of yoga and meditation. Welcome to a great adventure in consciousness, welcome to the study of Ayurveda.
