This program is designed for those of you who want to become certified yoga teachers and / or deepen your knowledge of the relationship between these two ancient practices, deepen your yoga practice and gain a foundational understanding through an in-depth study of yoga philosophy and yoga anatomy.

Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences originally designed to be practiced together which can lead you to the highest truth of your innermost self. The immersion-style of yoga and Ayurvedic training allows you to personally experience the benefits of daily self-care such as seasonal eating, meditation, mindfulness, and yoga.

Apart from finding your dosha and understanding of how this ancient system works, you will study Ayurveda’s philosophy and its take on topics such as digestion, nutrition, anatomy, physiology, and psychology. Immersion into Yogic studies is a profound and beneficial life-changing experience.

In this training, you will be taught the traditional teachings of Hatha yoga, functional anatomy, and alignment to safely create Vinyasa classes and learn how to create yoga sequences for your own practice, including ways to plan classes and design sequences guided by the Ayurvedic principles.
