Introduction to the concepts Ayurveda and Yoga
A fifteen- day Ayurveda and Yoga Teacher Training coursein Rishikeshis designed to make the student practitioner proficient in the Art and Sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda as a collaborative and integrated scientific system.
Ayurveda and Yoga were propounded approximately 2000 to 5000 years ago. Emerging from Hindu Vedic sciences.
Yoga particularly in its formation through the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali is one of the six systems of Vedic philosophy. Yoga distinguishes itself as it pervades all the six systems classified representing their practical side outlining the prime principles and methods for developing the meditative mind and that is the culmination of the basis of all Vedic knowledge.
Ayurveda is one of the four Upavedas. Ayurveda being the most important as it addresses all aspects of healing and wellness. Yoga and Ayurveda are a system complete in their offering of co-dependency. The two run like the wheels of a chariot. Ayurveda means knowledge of life and balancing the body- mind in health. Yoga is the ancient art and science of preparing the body and mind for the eventual liberation and enlightenment of the soul.
Ayurveda- Yoga and its applications
Ayurveda offers many ways to balance the "doshas" and find ones well being with a holistic approach. Addressing mind, body and spirit. Ayurvedic remedies draw on a number of modalities combined with Yoga.
- Diet modifications
- Lifestyle and activity adjustments
- Herbal supplements
- Yoga, pranayama and asanas
- Marma (energetic pressure points)
- Cleansing and detoxing processes
Yoga and Ayurveda are so closely related that it is often debated that Patanjali and CharakaSahita were the same people! The two had expounded these diverse and yet related systems.
Both systems are rooted in Samkhya. The foundation of this philosophy can be described as follows.
- That a fundamental state of pure being exists which lies beyond intellectual understanding.
- Suffering is an integral part of life due to ego attachment.
- The path to transcending suffering is dissolution of ego.
- Certain ethical guidelines ensure the goal of liberation from self.
- Any mental or physical disturbance causes disturbance in the evolution thus Ayurveda assists in the harmonizing of the elements.
The universal life force manifests as three doshas
Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These form the constitution of the organism called "Prakriti" or nature. The three doshas fluctuate according to environment (mental/physical), diet, seasons, climate, age and other factors. Imbalance in these is called "Vikruti" and understanding prakruti and vikruti is the key to diagnosis.
We can call asana the "external medicine" of yoga. It primarily treats musculo-skeletal disorders but indirectly benefits the entire internal and external physical body. Its key methods classified as Asanas, Pranayama, Bandhas, Mudras and Shatkarm (Hatha Yoga) provide virtually all aspects of physical wellness via bodily movements.
