Richmond, VA ~ Weekend Immersions
Ayurveda Immersion ● Friday March 28 - Sunday March 30th, 2014
About Ayurveda: Ayurvedic medicine, also called Ayurveda, originated in India several thousand years ago. The term “Ayurveda” combines the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda means “the science of life.”
In the United States, Ayurvedic medicine is considered a type of CAM and a whole medical system. As with other such systems, it is based on theories of health and illness and on ways to prevent, manage, or treat health problems.
Ayurvedic medicine aims to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit; thus, some view it as “holistic.” This balance is believed to lead to happiness and health, and to help prevent illness. Ayurvedic medicine also treats specific physical and mental health problems. A chief aim of Ayurvedic practices is to cleanse the body of substances that can cause disease, thus helping to reestablish harmony and balance. As a person practicing therapeutic yoga, learning the principles of Ayurveda can be a great asset to completing a holistic assessment and treatment plan for your client/student. You will learn how to integrate these principles into your sessions to help improve the participant's overall health, happiness and well being, as well as when to refer to an outside practitioner. Yoga is the science of the mind while Ayurveda is the sister science of health. Integrating these two philosophies together creates a solid foundation for a yoga therapy practitioner.
Please note that there are three immersions on Ayurvedic Medicine each required for those pursuing IAYT Yoga Therapy Certification.
