Learn how to bring greater insight, sensitivity, wisdom and potent innate transformation to your yoga and life, through this unique immersion on Ayurveda for Yogis with appleyoga Founder Katy Appleton and Ayurvedic Health Counselor Insiya Rasiwala-Finn. Ayurveda is India’s powerful healing science of life, and helps us return to a simple yet core idea, that when we live in true harmony with the rhythms of nature and flow of life; we can experience authentic mind body and spirit health even in our fast paced modern lives. This Advanced Training builds towards a 500 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.
You Will Learn:
Key Ayurvedic Principles:
Understand the key principles of Ayurveda as related to diet, lifestyle, mental and spiritual health in a tangible and approachable manner, and learn how to apply them to your life to create more wellbeing. We will discuss the idea of Prakriti, or our innate natal constitution and how we can rediscover the way we are meant to live, in harmony with our larger environment.
Yoga for the Doshas
Understanding the 3 doshas or constitutional mind-body types opens the doorway to deeper understanding of our bodies, our minds and heart. These powerful insights allow us to observe existing habit patters and effect lasting changes that move us to a different way of being. You will learn how to adapt the yoga practice to balance the impact of the time of day, seasons, the age of your students and bring more balance and healing. You will practice creating bespoke yoga routines that help to balance yours and your students’ individual constitution and learn how yoga can be powerful medicine when used wisely.
The movement of prana, or life force or energy is key in the yoga practice. Understanding the deeper principles of this life force energy via Ayurveda offers us insights into sequencing practices to address different energetic needs. We will discuss and practice yoga asanas through the Ayurvedic lens, to bring freedom, awareness and flow.
Food and Digestion:
Digesting food well is crucial to our health according to Ayurveda and more recently Western Science. Learn how what you eat and when impacts us as unique individuals and how we can find more balance in our life through balancing our food. Create your own healing regimen using simple Ayurvedic recipes that you will use for life.
Maintaining “shukra” or juicy-ness is our mind-body’s way of signalling that we are vibrant and thriving. Here we’ll explore how we can use a daily routine of Ayurvedic self care practices, yoga and pranayama to effect energy, vitality and creativity in our life and practice as we age.
