If you have never learnt any Ayurveda before it is best to start at Level 1 where you will learn:
Basic principles of Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy
5 elements and 3 doshas

How to practice a wide range of Yoga techniques from an Ayurvedic perspective including: Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha, Mantra,Meditation and more..
This is a 6 day course that is co-taught by myself and Cathy Mae Karelse. It is an opportunity to deepen understanding of how Yoga can be practised with an Ayurvedic approach with more emphasis on the practical aspects including Meditation and Ayurvedic cookery.
As there will be a lot of references to Yoga, the applicant should have at least 6 months experience of Yoga practices (including Asana and Pranayama) to get the most benefit from the Level 1 course. In order to apply for the Level 2 course, applicants will have done a Level 1 course or another course that covers the basic principles of Ayurveda. Applicants should also be able to read and understand a good level of English as some reading and writing will be required to meet the course criteria.
Our courses are accredited with the British Wheel of Yoga.
