2x 10 uur training: ayurveda & the subtle bodies with moena
2X 10 HR ADVANCED STUDY: AYURVEDA & THE SUBTLE BODIES WITH MOENA
A brand-new Advanced Study at De Nieuwe Yogaschool for everyone who is interested in the ancient holistic approach on spiritual practice & a transformative lifestyle which can lead from confusion to clarity!
The concept of the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha – is most people’s route into understanding Ayurveda. With the insight how Vata Dosha can be responsible for all movement, Pitta for all transformations and Kapha for all structure in our body and the world around us. But there is a deeper level of this understanding though and the three Doshas have their root or master forms, which are sometimes called “the three subtle essences”: Prana (life force and energy), Tejas (radiance and courage), and Ojas (vigour and strength).
Prana is our life force, energy and vitality and is the root or subtle essence of Vata Dosha. Prana is the guiding intelligence behind all our physiological and psychological functions.
Tejas is our inner radiance, lust, fearlessness, intelligence and understanding. It is the subtle essence of Pitta and the means by which we digest and metabolise the impressions we receive through our senses and the thoughts and emotions that occupy our mind.
Ojas is our primal vigour, strength, immunity, longevity and well-being and is the subtle essence of Kapha as well as of all the seven tissues of our body.
According to Ayurveda, we don’t just have one body – we have five. In the field of Ayurveda, and the related science of Yoga, each of us has five bodies or Koshas. Each Kosha acts as a sheath, which covers or hides our essential nature – our Atman or inner Self. All five Koshas are interconnected and constantly interacting with each other.
The reason why Ayurveda is said to be the most holistic science is that it not only recognises the existence of our five different bodies or Koshas but it has the deepest knowledge of how to bring each into its optimal state.
In this 20 hr Advanced Study we will explore through subtle practices the mystic form of yoga which will give you the insight how to adapt your Sadhana (spiritual practice) in a way that it’s most beneficial for your constitution; focussing on the constant change within and around ourselves. In this deepening weekend we will look into:
- Asana practice related with the Tridoshas to find more depth & peace in your way of doing physical practice
- The Doshas & their qualities
- The 5 great elements & their relationship with your health
- Practices for the energy body
- The Ayurvedic wisdom and learn how to create a holistic daily routine
This Advanced Study is suitable for everyone who is interested to bring balance in their life from out the Ayurvedic holistic perspective.
