In this workshop you will come to understand the foundation principles of Ayurveda and how to adjust your own hatha/vinyasa/ashtanga practice to support you and help bring balance into your body and mind. You will learn easy tips on how to recognize when vata, pitta or kapha is out of balance, regardless of your own constitution, and how to use simple techniques such as inner and outer drishti (gaze), pace, pranayama and focus points within asanas.

AYURVEDIC YOGA TEACHER TRAINING – starting in August 2015
This 150-hour teacher training is intended for yoga students of intermediate leve and yoga teachers to learn how to integrate the wisdom of Ayurveda into the yoga asanas.
The basic principles of Ayurveda, food, lifestyle, herbs, daily routines, use of household remedies will be discussed.
We will practice and experience which asanas and vinyasas are good for which ayurvedic dosha (constitution): vata, pitta and kapha. Not only if this is your own prakruti (the constitution you are born with), but also for when it is your vikruti (present imbalance).
As the seasons all are their own vata, pitta and kapha season, you will learn how we can adjust our asana practice to be what our body needs at the present moment.
We are not who we were yesterday, nor will we be tomorrow. Ayurveda teaches us how to work with who we are at the present moment and how to keep ourselves in balance our bring ourselves back to balance, of which yoga asana can be a great part of the balance or disbalance.
If our yoga practice that does not match with our own constitution or present state, it can do more harm than good.
Same with the opposite, it can be a great aid to perfect health!
