AYURVEDA FOR YOGA TEACHERS

Teaching is a way to self-mastery. When we teach we integrate our own knowledge, express inner wisdom and gain insight and clarity into who we are. It pushes new boundaries within our own thinking and motivates us to support, give and be present.

Yoga is a way of life..

Yoga is a conscious way of life that we can live every day. If we learn how to cultivate a consistent conscious lifestyle, the state of Yoga will arrive and remain.

The more we learn, the more we can share with each other to support growth, change and transformation.​

LIVE IN ALIGNMENT WITH WHO YOU ARE

Ayurveda and Yoga recognize that each person has a unique mind-body-spirit framework that requires individual care to bring life balance, hope, energy, resilience and health to their life. Not one practice fits all and during times of change, aging, transition and we can bring balance to our lives by adapting our life practice. 

The integration of Ayurveda & Yoga provide us with the wisdom, support, practice and tools, to create clarity and connection throughout the the transitions of life. We can understand how to adapt for the season, our age, self-care and understanding. 

This allows us to build our immunity and prevent dis-ease. 

 

Yoga is an inner journey that allows us to grow within, creating self-integration. Ayurveda is an inner experience that acknowledges our unique needs, and leads us toward self-balance. This beautiful relationship, between Ayurveda & Yoga, helps us to create harmony and unification; connecting the inner and outer Self to support the discovery our true nature. 

"Mastery is integration...without practice there is no mastery."
