APPLIED AYURVEDA & DINACHARYA: Advanced Training for Teachers

Monday 10th Jul 2017


This 12 hour course explores the practical application of Ayurveda in the modern Western world and how to apply it to our classes, courses, private sessions and life.


You’ll gain a real working knowledge of Ayurvedic concepts around 5 elements, 3 doshas, daily rhythms, 5 energy flows, 20 gunas and how they all work together on a day to day basis.

The best teachers teach from a place of experiential knowledge. As such, the first part of the course will focus on understanding how these principles arise within ourselves, our practice and our environment.

From this place of deeper understanding you’ll learn frameworks to analyse imbalances and how to tailor classes as well as private sessions from an Ayurvedic understanding translated for modern daily living.


Part 1: Understanding Ayurveda in ourselves, our practice and our environment.

The first part of this course will explore the basics of Ayurveda within ourselves, our own practice and our environment.

Topics include:

  • The 20 Gunas — ten spectrums or pairs of opposites
  • The 5 Elements and 3 Doshas (Vata, Pita, Kapha) — Understanding the qualities of the 5 elements and 3 doshas within individuals, seasons and times of day.
  • Prakruti (Constitution) — Understanding our constitution and how this influences the way we practice, eat, sleep, meditate, interact and design our lives.
  • Vikruti (Imbalance) — Exploring how to identify imbalance and use of the Gunas to move back into balance.
  • Prana Vayus — The five directional flows of prana (energy).
  • Dinacharya — How to tailor practices to align with the daily rhythms.
  • Ayurveda and the seasons
  • Ayurvedic Self Care practices


Part 2: Applying Ayurveda to our classes, students and teaching.

The second part of this course will use our deeper understanding of Ayurvedic principles in our own lives and teach critical thinking skills for applying this to class design, interaction with individual students as well as seasonal change.

Topics include:

  • Reading the 20 Gunas in our students and classroom and how to respond accordingly.
  • Designing classes to either activate or balance each of the 5 Elements and 3 Doshas and Prana Vayus.
  • Reading Prakruti (Constitution) in our students and exploring how to adapt practices based on constitution.
  • Reading Vikruti (Imbalance) in our students and exploring how to adapt practices based on imbalance.
  • Exploring how to teach the basics of Dinacharya (daily rhythms) and self care practices within the context of yoga classes.

By the end of this course, you should have a good grasp on the basic principles of Ayurveda, how to articulate them with your students and how to use these concepts to design your own practice, yoga classes or one on one sessions to generate greater balance and wellbeing.
