Your goal in this program is to learn ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and how it applies to women's health, WHILE elevating your own health by learning healing practices.
SO THAT YOU CAN: • Apply Ayurveda to your own life • Help your family & friends bring balance in their lives • Apply Ayurveda to an existing practice (if you're a practitioner)
AYURVEDIC FOUNDATION + FOCUS ON WOMEN'S HEALING & VITALITY
Learn by observing yourself and the world around you.
Learn how to vitalize body, mind and spirit using Ayurvedic principles and by working on your own health (this is the best way to learn!)
Learn easily. Distance format allows for home study on your own time, while studying in a one-on-one way with a seasoned instructor enhances your understanding AND allows you to apply it to your life and your work in your own unique way.
WHY IS THIS COURSE FOR WOMEN?
It is women who most commonly seek holistic healthcare and yoga instruction, and women at the grass roots level using what they learn to care for their families' health, and teaching others about these ancient sciences. Yet, there isn't a lot of accessible information out there about women's health from an Ayurvedic perspective. Thankfully, this is changing - let's be part of this shift!
COURSE FORMAT & TIME INVESTMENT
The course is based on 6-7 hours/week (12-14 hrs/module) readings, & study exercises (It may take you more, or less time depending on your particular reading speed and study habits) as well as recorded lectures (Watch anytime you're able, and watch again to gather more information!)
Online forum for discussion with Sunny. Discuss concepts and troubleshoot your own health concerns - this is how we learn practical Ayurveda!
Optionalone-on-one live calls. Ask questions and discuss the material and your own health/process with Sunny live online. Schedule as many or as few of these as you like. The cost for these valuable one-on-one sessions is just $40 for 30 minutes.
PLUS - you'll have access to the Ayurveda for Women Facebook group - where lively dialog about all things health, womanhood and motherhood takes place.
