CPD EVENT with TARIK DERVISH- Integrating Ayurveda into Yoga Teaching
Integrating Ayurveda into Yoga teaching is becoming more and more important in our ever changing world and gives us the strength and confidence to face the enormous challenges ahead of an ailing world and divided society that is crying out for healing.
Yoga and Ayurveda are said to be ‘sister sciences’ because the supporting knowledge that Ayurveda provides around diet, lifestyle, herbs and cosmic outlook make the yoga experience richer, fuller and more relevant.
Yoga practice with an ayurvedic approach adds a therapeutic and transformative flavour to daily practice without losing the magical essence of Vedic philosophy. The ayurvedic paradigm is pre-scientific and therefore rich in symbol and metaphor but equally, it is open enough to embrace our ever-evolving scientific understanding of therapeutic practice. Ayurveda can bring great softness and compassion to yoga practice, essential qualities for self-healing and transformation.
Aim- This workshop explores some of the deeper questions that link yoga and Ayurveda together and offers a congruent framework for integrating the two bodies of knowledge together so that yoga teachers can apply the principles of Ayurveda with more confidence.
Learning outcomes- By the end of the day, yoga teachers should be able to
1. Discuss some key historic links between yoga and Ayurveda
2. Explain the basic tenets of Ayurveda’s basic principles including the five element and three dosha theory
3. Apply the principles of vata dosha to an asana class
4. Access ways of exploring pranayama, meditation and guided relaxation using ayurvedic principles
