Dancing Shiva presents...
Namaste friends and Community,
Year after year our intimate and humble groups have enjoyed their studies of Ayurveda & Yoga in the sacred land of India. Its really hard to explain in words how valuable it is, simply just "being" in India. You naturally absorb so much great wisdom from this colorful culture. Students of these unique training programs actually participate at a fully fledged Ayurvedic University in Pune and at a living Eco-Village.
D.Y. Patil College of Ayurved & Research Centre is a prestigous university that is affiliated with Dancing Shiva to offer non-Indian students an opportunity to study Ayurveda in the most authentic environment. More important than the state of the art school and hospital facility is the highly trained faculty of doctors, practitioners, yoga teachers and community leaders that come together to bring great depth of wisdom and practical clinical experience to all our students. Attendees will enjoy cultivating new friendships and learning from the experience of being immersed in Ayurveda in its homeland. The empasis is on providing a balanced approach to learning between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. I have seen over the years how changed our students are from attending these programs, from being in India and the renewed spiritual attitude that they infuse into their lifestyles. Its truly a life changing experience that everyone can enjoy and benefit from. Please do let me or our Dancing Shiva staff know how we can make this experience better for you.
In service, love and gratitude,
