Integrated Health Yoga Therapy’s (http://www.ihyt.org/) exciting new 300/500 Hour Yoga Therapist Training in Bali starting in April 2015 (http://www.ihyt.org/#!level-1-therapist-bali/c222i) features a new faculty member, Dr. Kekada Sujatha, specializing in Ayurvedic medicine.

Dr. Sujatha is a certified Ayurvedic doctor (B.A.M.S.) and head physician at Amrtasiddhi, the Ayurveda and Yoga Health Centre in the city of Ubud (http://www.amrtasiddhi.com/). She completed her degree in Karnataka, India, and has consulted in Europe and at one of the top health retreats in Asia in addition to practicing at one of the most respected Ayurvedic clinics in Kerala, India. Kekada’s warm and caring attitude has combined with a wide range of Ayurvedic knowledge and experience to make her a profound facilitator of various healing experiences for many people. Her knowledge of Yoga, T’ai Chi, and meditation in addition to Ayurveda further enhance her contribution to IHYT’s holistic vision of healing through the mindful, conscientious, informed integration of numerous ancient traditions with modern science and medical practice.

Thousands of years old, Ayurveda is not only an ancient system of medicine but a science of life. It includes the use of plant-based medicines, diet, aromatherapy, massage, meditation, detoxification programs, and other treatments. Ayurveda begins, however, with its philosophical foundation of the 3 Doshas, the fundamental energies that govern mind, body, and spirit. In Sanskrit the Doshas are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), and each of us has a unique balance and proportion of these 3 forces that shapes our character and forms who we are, our strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies. Most people have one or two of these forces in a dominant position. In addition to balance between the 3 Doshas, each one of the Doshas can find either balanced or imbalanced expression within our lives. For example, balanced Kapha or Earth results in a nurturing and grounded personality, but out-of-balance it may promote lethargy, obesity, and sinus congestion.

Ayurvedic practice begins with determining the ideal state of balance unique to the individual patient, then determining where the individual is out of balance and what treatments can help. Individual treatments may be aimed at individual conditions but from a holistic standpoint the ideal state of balance and complete health and wellbeing of the individual are always at the heart of Ayurvedic treatment.

Another main cause of dis-ease, in Ayurvedic tradition, is the build-up of toxins in the human body. The presence of toxins can result in low energy, digestive issues, and lack of mental alertness.

Dr. Kekada Sujatha and other IHYT faculty who are leaders in their respective fields (http://www.ihyt.org/#!faculty/cjg9) will be hosting the 300/500 Hour Yoga Therapy Training in Bali in two semesters beginning April 16-30 2015 and concluding October 17-30 2015. The training will take place at the lovely Bali Wellness Retreat in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, in the lush green hills outside Ubud with a stunning view of Bali’s sacred mountain, Mont Agung.
