Ayurveda Course reviews :


We have covered most of your questions here.

Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that have emerged from Samkhya philosophy. The course is just right for Yoga teachers since it brings in ayurvedic awareness into their teaching practice – so they can customize the practices for their students according to their ayurvedic type. If you are not a yoga teacher then it brings in ayurvedic self-care principles and awareness of a disease-free lifestyle.
