This Self-Care for Yoga Teachers & Massage therapists seminar meets the NCBTMB recertification requirements for 4 hours in Self-Care. Ayurveda is the science of self healing and gives rise to this holistic self-care program which is designed to provide you with the understanding, guidelines and tools to achieve a life of balance based on the wisdom and beauty of the interconnected Vedic sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga. Ayurveda will give you the insight and tools to understand your unique constitution and how and why you function. It will teach you how to recognize certain qualities within yourself and your students. These qualities will determine how you speak and relate with them, how to adjust them in poses and help them heal themselves. Even the smallest Ayurvedic suggestions will help your students. This seminar will empower you with knowledge and provide you with a toolbox for specific lifestyle and nutritional suggestions. Learn how to recognize which of the five great elements are out of balance in your students and use practical protocols in your yoga classes to assist them in the recovery process. There is no such thing as an Ayurvedic Yoga class for everyone. That would be an oxymoron. Ayurveda recognizes each person as unique, so “generalizing” won’t work. You could call your class Sama Ayurvedic Yoga or Tri-Dosha Ayurvedic Yoga and gear the asanas according to the season. Sama is Sanskrit for equanimity and balance and tri-dosha means balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta & kapha. You could teach a Pitta Yoga Class or Vata Yoga Class or Kapha Yoga Class, all offered separately. It would be way too challenging to try to pacify everyone’s specific doshic imbalance in one class, though there are some asana’s that are tri-doshic (good for all). I will teach those in this course.
