This is your initiation to a lifetime of study. We invite you on this journey of learning, cultivation, refining as we continue our own. As students of Dr. Vasant Lad, we are committed to offering the depths of wisdom Ayurveda has to offer, beginning with philosophical roots and moving into the manifestation of health and disease. Heather and Emmie have each been studying Ayurveda for 15 years, and practicing for over a decade.
We are thrilled to share this program—a labor of love—from our hearts to yours.
Ayurveda Embodied is a 9-month, in-depth online Ayurvedic studies program.
The 3 modules are each 3 months long and can be purchased a la carte or as a whole, for a discount.
Each module includes theory, practice, a sanskrit shloka (chant), a guided meditation, and suggested readings.
- Module 1 (May 21 -July 30) will cover cosmology, the doshas, and intro to self-treatment based on prakruti-vikruti paradigm and dinacharya (daily routine).
- Module 2 (August 6-October 29) includes seasonal kala chikitsa, assessment and treatment of agni (digestion) and ama (toxic by-products).
- Module 3 (November 5- January 27, 2020) covers manas (the mind), srotamsi (energy channels), prana (life force) and more.
Who is this for?
It’s for anyone who wishes to improve their health and quality of life. You do not need prior knowledge of Ayurveda. This program will serve you immeasurably well for the rest of your life, as you learn to be your own best healer. It’s empowering, life-changing wisdom that we are honored to share in this way! If you are already versed in Ayurveda but have not attended a training program, this will deepen your knowledge.
What’s the format?
The program format is 2, 90-minute lectures and 1, live 60-minute Q&A session per month. There will be a Facebook group for discussion and questions, which Heather and Emmie will monitor twice weekly.
Our schedule will depend on students availability for the Live Q&A. You may watch lectures at your convenience.
