Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers
An online course designed to support yoga teachers in weaving the practical wisdom of Ayurveda into their yoga classes
Ayurveda is a sister science to Yoga and as such offers us some very simple but profound tools we can use to craft yoga classes that will support our students in finding balance in mind and body. While Ayurveda is a rich and complex topic that can take lifetimes to master in depth, the basic principles can be learned in just a few hours. This course is an online version of the material I cover in Yoga Teacher Training programs and will provide you with all you need to start weaving Ayurvedic wisdom into your offerings.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this course for? I designed this course for Yoga Teachers, meaning it will be valuable to those who already know how to teach Yoga as this course will not teach you that. This program is meant to provide information on Ayurveda and the way in which that information can be applied to the practice of teaching Yoga, so that you can create personalized sequences for your private clients or group classes that will support overall health and wellness- regardless of the style of yoga you teach.
Can I take this course if I am not a Yoga Teacher? I wouldn’t recommend it as it is likely not what you are looking for. If you want to learn more about Ayurveda and the ways in which to apply it do daily life you should check out my Living Yoga Online Immersion for Women or my Basics of Ayurvedic Self Care Workshop (coming soon).
How is this course delivered? After registration you will receive an email with links to the Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers video lessons and workbook, all of which can be downloaded. You will also be given access to a page of resources in the form of book titles, blog articles, audio downloads and online yoga classes that I have created using Ayurvedic teachings, this resource page has been created to support further learning. And finally, there will be a private Facebook forum you can join where you can share conversation with other Yoga Teachers and myself.
How much private support will I get? The video lessons and workbook will offer you tools and homework assignments to support you in integrating the information in the course and putting it into practice in both your daily life and your teaching work. You can use the Facebook forum to ask questions and I will answer them as promptly as I can. If you want more personalized one on one support you can book private mentor sessions with me via Skype and I can help you refine your teaching work from an Ayurvedic perspective.
Is this a certification course? No. This course does not certify you to be an Ayurvedic consultant or practitioner and will not cover diagnostic techniques beyond a basic assessment of doshic imbalance (vikruti). This course does provide you the information you need to design yoga classes that take Ayurvedic wisdom into account.
