The foundations of Ayurveda

Along with our focus on Ashtanga Yoga, we will be heavily integrating the study of the foundations of Ayurveda along with our practice.

Emphasis on:

  • Samkhya Philosophy as it relates to Ayurveda
  • The 3 main Gunas – Rajas, Tamas, and Sattva
    • The 20 Gunas
  • The Elements
  • The Doshas: Properties & characteristics, imbalances, foods & herbs
    • The subtle forms of the Doshas: Prana, Tejas, and Ojas
  • Ayurvedic anatomy (subdoshas) and the Dhatu Formation Cycle
  • Dinacharya
