Santiago de Chile, Chile (PRWEB) April 27, 2014
The Ayurvedic foundations program in Chile is now offered by the internationally recognized Escuela Ayurveda de California in August 2014.
Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India. It literally means in sanscrit "knowledge or wisdom of life." As a mind-body-spirit medicine, its scope enters into the realms of the spirit and the transformation of consciousness. Its fundamental philosophy is that disease is the end result of living out of harmony with our environment. In order to re-establish optimal health, one must discover where we are living out of harmony and then adopt a life style which brings us back into perfect harmony and health.
The Foundations course offered in Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso and throughout the country (Fundamentos de Ayurveda) is a fifty credit hours course and can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of the Ayurvedic Massage and Body Therapy courses (including abhyanga). In order to complete the program, the student has to submit a series of reading comprehension questions and a variety of self-healing and self-exploration exercises. The program costs $175 US (about 89 000 chilean pesos).
The Ayurveda program in Chile covers the following subjects:
Introduction to history, philosophy, mythology of Ayurveda
Five element theory
Sensory therapies (including aromatherapy)
Fundamentals of determining a patient's constitution
