Level 2 Ayurveda for yoga teachers with Keren & Lucy, Oct 2020
Ayurveda for yoga teachers, 40 hours, 25th-28th October 2020
Ayurveda is an ancient science that literally means the knowledge of life. The beauty of Ayurveda is at its very core it gifts us with the ability to care for ourselves and ultimately heal ourselves. It is a science that works for every individual as it sees you as just that, an individual that is wholly unique and therefore any health issues are wholly unique to you. Many of todays healing modality came out of Ayurveda – herbalism, aromatherapy, massage therapy, nutrition, yoga as therapy, meditation, pranayama and so much more. It’s an in-depth and complex science but with some smart and grounded knowledge, it’s easy to incorporate Ayurveda into your life and home for a happier healthier you.
In this 40hr training, you will be introduced to the Ayurvedic principals of maintaining balance, understanding the doshas and how to recognise an imbalance, we will then look at how we can use this understanding to guide your approach to yoga, nutrition and diet, meditation and pranayama, cleansing practices and lifestyle choices.

Keren has been studying Ayurveda and incorporating it into her life for over 8 years. In 2017 Keren travelled to New York to study Ayurveda for women’s health with Dr Ali Cramer and Dr Claudia Welch which inspired her to then take the huge step to study as an Ayurvedic practitioner with Dr Deepika at the Ayurvedic Institute in Croydon. This 750 hour course equipped Keren with a deeper understanding of how we can incorporate Ayurveda into our lives for happiness and health and while she firmly believes (in fact knows!) she will continue to study Ayurveda for the rest of her life, she is excited to share some of what she has learnt
Lucy was first exposed to Ayurveda and its potent wisdom whilst living in India 12 years ago. From then it has had a profound effect on how she lives her life and the lifestyle choices she has made. She was lucky enough to study with Rose Baudin as part of her level 2 training 7 years ago and was introduced to deeper Ayurvedic wisdom and how we can use this knowledge to inform our yoga practice. It was Lucy’s connection with Rose that led her to meeting and having the chance to study with Dr. Robert Svoboda, one of the world’s leading voices on Ayurveda. The balance and ease that this living body of wisdom has bought into Lucy’s life is something she will forever be grateful for and is excited to share this passion.
