Ayurveda is considered to be the medicinal side to yoga. It literally means "the knowledge of life," and it teaches how to live harmoniously with the environment and the bodies. Like yoga, Ayurvedic medicine is a holistic science that promotes well-being at the level of the body, mind and spirit. It teaches that disease is the end result of the lack of harmony in our daily lives. Through a variety of natural techniques, including herbal medicines, panchakarma, and lifestyle counseling, balance and health is restored sustainably.
Understanding why people become sick is very profound and yet simple: once a person understands the cause of disease, they can begin to heal. Ayurveda teaches us that all disease begins when we are living out of harmony with our environment. When a patient takes in inappropriate impressions from our environment through any of our senses, they choose to weaken the body and create an internal environment which supports the creation of disease. The Ayurveda studies program offered teaches all the principles of living in harmony with the environment.
Healing through Ayurvedic Medicine involves all five senses. Through taste, a patient utilizes proper diet and herbs. Through sight, a patient utilizes proper color and beauty. Through smell, a patient utilizes aromatherapy. Through sound, a patient utilizes music and sound energies. Finally, through the skin, we take in specially prepared herbal oils and receive ayurvedic massage (abhyanga). In addition to five sense therapy, Ayurveda advocates the periodic removal of accumulated toxins and food residues through specialized purification procedures called panchakarma.
The school is currently also accepting enrollment in the Ayurvedic Health Educator Program (Educador de Salud Ayurveda) available in Colombia, Ayurveda España, Chile, México, Ecuador, and Argentina.
