HOW IT WORKS

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. 

Study the theory online through 100 video lessons, read and check curated references online, discuss online with our Ayurveda guides, take notes, and complete assignments(optional for Ayurveda course).

  • Deeper study – full focus on the subject in the privacy of your own home and in your own time.
  • The Fundamental principles of Ayurveda are synergized with the principles of Yoga Therapy to enhance the capabilities of Yoga Teacher.
  • Authentic – designed by the oldest Yoga Institute in the world.
