Āyurvedic Yoga: 3 Approaches to Teaching Āyurvedic Yoga
By Mona L. Warner
Author Mona Warner’s new book, Āyurvedic Yoga: 3 Approaches to Teaching Āyurvedic Yoga, is for yoga teachers who want to keep their classes relevant and inspiring. It encourages teachers to create classes that go beyond poses, using Āyurveda to balance specific aspects of your students’ lives.
Discover how the ancient practice of Yoga and the equally ancient medical science of Āyurveda can be combined in a way that compliment each other while honoring their unique individual elements. Mona shows you how blending these modalities skillfully creates more potency in your Yoga practice.
In this book, you’ll learn how to bring Āyurveda and Yoga together in a meaningful and thoughtful way – a way that turns Yoga practice into Āyurvedic medicine. You’ll learn three unique approaches for bringing Āyurveda into Yoga classes:
- Guṇas – Qualities of nature: This is the language of Āyurveda and the fundamental concept in its practice. Learn how to translate this into how you choose and teach Yoga.
- Doṣas – Organizing energies of the body-mind: Increase your students’ well-being by connecting them to the rhythms of nature.
- Special Topics specific to Āyurveda such as agni, sattva, and ojas.
The ancient wisdom and knowledge provided by Yoga and Āyurveda can inspire and revitalize your personal practice and classes. Join Mona on this journey of blending two powerful and brilliant Vedic sciences to deepen the understanding and practice of both.
