Yoga & Ayurveda – A Synthesis

Decoding Yoga through Insights of Ayurveda 

by Dr. Aashish Phadke
12th to 18th March 2023
(Check-in: 12th March
Check-out: 19th March)

There is growing awareness regarding the benefits of yoga, especially therapeutic yoga. All over world, people are following yoga in one or other way. Many people either attend yoga classes to learn yoga for themselves while others aspire to become Yoga Teacher & take TTC –Yoga (Teachers training course in Yoga) whereas, some go ahead with training of Yoga Therapy.

In most of these programmes, the focus is on concepts & practices in yoga viz. Asana, Pranayama, Shatkarma, Dhyana etc. Usually these courses are also supplemented with essential knowledge of basic Anatomy & Physiology, Disease symptomatology of Modern Medicine. But there is not much inclusion of Ayurveda in these courses. These courses describe basic concepts of Ayurveda. Students also learn Yoga texts separately. But there is no interactive discussion on why Yoga students/practitioners or Yoga Teachers/Yoga Therapists should know about Ayurveda.

Now days, Individualized Medicine has been discussed by researchers in Modern Medicine. Therapy has to be tailor-made according to the need of that individual. Ayurveda also has similar concept. According to Ayurveda, every person has a specific Prakruti and there is a need to plan that individual’s therapy. Based on this concept, one should think about individualized Integrative Yoga – Ayurveda practices or therapy.

This thoughtfully designed workshop based on a highly analytical approach to empower yourself as either a yoga sadhaka or yoga teacher or yoga therapist by imbibing wisdom of Ayurveda in its application mode.

This is neither a ‘yoga teacher’s training program’, nor is ‘Ayurveda certificate program’ usually taught as a supplementary course in any of the yoga institutions across the globe, rather it is the program on ‘Applied Ayurveda for Yoga’ – ‘Yoga & Ayurveda – a Synthesis’ especially designed for yoga sadhakas, yoga teachers & yoga therapists to empower them.
