Natural Therapy and Ayurveda Course

Ayurveda is the knowledge (veda) of life (ayus). This knowledge is universal, but more importantly, it is personal. With this knowledge we live true to ourselves and we remain vital, healthy, and conscious. Yoga and Ayurveda were historically understood within the context of each other. As parallel paths, one was always followed with an understanding of the other. To be a skilled yogi, we must understand our nature from the perspective of Ayurveda, and vice versa.

Ayurveda is divided into two primary teaching streams: the Ayurvedic clinical practice of medicine and the self guiding life wisdom practices known as Swasthavritta. Swasthavritta is the Ayurvedic body of wisdom and practices that inform and inspire right livelyhood and actions in the world (sadvritta) given one’s unique nature, and empowers the individual to self care. Similar to a Yogi, a Swastha is one who is established in one’s true self, and who acts and lives in accordance to one’s own nature. Swasthavritta sheds light on the primal relationship between the self and nature, with a simple message: just be you.

At the moment of our conception the cosmos recreates itself in miniature and a one-of-a-kind stellar event results in our own unique nature (prakriti) that differs from all others. No two of us the same. From the moment we appear in the world we strive to find our place in community, in conection with others, and still be ourselves. How do we care for this unique individuated self? Conformist one-size-fits-all trends, diets and medical treatments do not work for everyone.

Mindfulness Transform (PRATYAHARA) Course

So few practitioners and teachers of yoga are practicing the traditional pratyahara practices, considered the actual doorway into the deep subconscious mind and the realm of the inner silence, that pratyahara is often referred to as the Lost Limb of yoga.

Patanjali describes eight limbs of yoga, of which pratyahara stands as the sensorial gateway between the physical (asana, pranayama) and the subtle (mind, soul). Pratyahara guides us through the fundamental experiences of sensory witnessing and control. In the conventional sense, the mind was designed to engage the busy world of sensory information by seeking and interpreting stimulation, but on the yogic path meditation inquires into it’s counterintuitive opposite – inner silence. How then do we turn off the mind? Pratyahara practices such as Antar Mouna will be reviewed and taught.

This course will learn:

  • PRATYAHARA IN YOGAWhere the Senses Yield to the Mind
    Antahkarana: The Inner Instrument Linking Mind and Soul
    Mano Mani Avishtha: Point With No Name
    PRATYAHARA IN AYURVEDA

    The Four Types of Pratyahara

Meditation and Pranayama Course

There is no yoga without truth, meditation and self reflection, or mindfulness. Yoga was always intended to be different for every person because we all experience the world differently. The boilerplate techniques are irrelevant, and results are subject . To failure if the practice is forced and inauthentic. In this program, we will explore the purpose of mindfulness and meditation as an inquiry into the one true form – our authentic self.

We will explore “technique and technical form” versus “free discovery Of our true form”. We will look at outer versus inner truths, knowledge versus self knowledge, practice versus self reflection, living true to oneself (sadvritta), and a meditation practice rooted in the exploration of unique truths of our own personal nature. We will explore a few major meditation practice forms, try them on, feel them in our bodies, and evaluate their effectiveness. By the end of the weekend, practitioners wil l have a more intimate connection to each of the primary styles, and the how and when to use them. We ultimately want each practitioner to find his or her true meditation form that is authentic to them.

This course will learn:

  • A Visual History of MEDITATION in Yoga
  • Beyond Asana: The true you should find
  • The Neuroscience of Meditation
