ONE PROGRAM WITH TWO GREAT SYSTEMS
Welcome to the original Yoga and Ayurveda program that unites both sciences into an authentic teaching approach and lifestyle-training course. This program uniquely teaches how Yoga and Ayurveda are practiced together to create the perfect balance of practical wisdom and spirituality. If you are looking for a course that embraces the essence of all types of yoga, this is it.
DETAILS ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The program is about learning through practice and strongly adheres to a experiential approach to learning. Philosophical teaching is commonly given during various exercises and rituals as well as from our staffs many years of teaching experience. You learn to practice yoga and create a lifestyle according to what is best for your dosha type (body-mind constitution) rather following some fixed formula as most western teachings preach. One of the most important themes of the program is based on this principle of individuality. In learning how to adapt a routine and a yoga practice unique to your needs, it encourages the student to be creative and dynamic as they develop into a teacher. The course also serves to prepare a person to teach others not just asana (postures) but an integral approach to yoga that includes other components such as breath-work, mantra and meditation and knowledge of Ayurvedic principles that provide for a truly holistic approach to teaching or becoming a healer.
In each of the weekend meetings the curriculum is complimented with ayurvedic daily and seasonal routines, yoga practice and many other lifestyle disciplines that teach us how to integrate the principles of yoga and ayurveda into our daily lives.
After completing the application all students must schedule an interview with Director Mas Vidal. The interview serves to better understand the student background and intention and make clear the underlying purpose for taking the program. During the interview various topics are discussed such as placement, intention, finances, level of commitment and realistic frequency of participation to yoga classes and events. The interview can be done by telephone or skype.
An understanding of your doshic type is an important part of taking the program and beginning the Yoga and Ayurveda journey. This session is the first step to orientation of integrating Ayurveda into your daily and eventually seasonal routine. Therefore students are required to begin the course with knowledge of their own Prakriti (constitution) and Vikriti (imbalances). The consultation and the Interview (above mentioned) can be done during the same meeting if done in person. The consultation can be done at a later date and also through Skype after starting the program.
