About the Course
Ayurveda follows the logic of nature. As it originated in India, one might come to think that it would only apply to situations in its country of origin. However fundamentally, the logic of nature is universal. This means Ayurveda can be made to work in western context as well. You will be shown ways to practically use it in your own country.
Ayurveda is taught in a way where you can first use it or apply it in your own life and when you actually have the experience you can apply to help others. For this reason, in 4-weeks Ayurveda massage course the emphasis is on helping the students to first experience Ayurveda on themselves and then instruct them on how to use it on others.
According to the teachings of Ayurveda, physical body and emotional body are inseparable. Fully feeling and integrating our emotions into a state of natural harmony greatly benefits physical health, and likewise it harmonizes the emotions. Therefore, in this course you will practically experience ways to deal with unresolved emotional issues for better health.
Traditionally Ayurveda has been taught as a transmission of experiential knowledge. Gagori has experienced, through working with her clients, on herself what she actually teaches. This is the reason she imparts real knowledge rather than theoretical book knowledge. She fosters an open communication and dialogues between teacher and students which in the past was called Guru-Shishya parampara; the flow of knowledge from one generation to the next.
The full spectrum experiential approach to teaching Ayurveda is unique to the Aithein curriculum. You will not find it in any other school.
The 4-weeks course for Ayurveda has been prepared by well qualified and experienced teachers and professionals involved in the field of Ayurveda and Panchakarma, with a strong academic and healing background. The aim of the course is to provide authentic, meaningful and practical knowledge about the various practices and massage therapies of Ayurveda.
