Have you been wanting to explore the basics of ayurveda (a traditional Indian healing system considered to be the “sister science of yoga”) and its many health benefits, but are overwhelmed by all the options? The good people at Yoga U Online (a beloved IAYB sponsor) understand that there’s a lot to figure out. Lucky for us, they’ve created a five-part online course to introduce the basics.
IAYB and Yoga U Online have teamed up to give away three copies of their upcoming course, Paths to Healing: An Introduction to Ayurveda. In five sessions between October 11 and November 2, Prudence Farrow Burns covers the basics of ayurveda and how it can be applied to your life. The online course will provide an introduction to the profound principles and practical knowledge of how to use the principles of ayurveda to promote good health through understanding your individual body type. It also covers the principles of proper diet, exercise programs, and personalized daily and seasonal routines that offer the most benefits for your unique body type as well as preexisting preventative and treatment modalities.
You will also gain hands-on experience in pulse diagnosis, oil massage, as well as recommendations for specific foods, spices, and daily and seasonal routines to address the unique imbalances of your dosha type (constitution). Since Prudence Farrow Burns is also a Sanskrit specialist, attention will be paid throughout the course to the original Sanskrit textual sources. And Burns is Mia Farrow’s sister and the inspiration for The Beatle’s song, “Dear Prudence.” Whoa!
