LMU Extension introduces: “Emphasis in Ayurveda Self Care“.
Ayurveda, considered one of the world’s first comprehensive medical sciences, offers a developed and comprehensive philosophical construct that defines the fundamental energetic nature of humans, and our interaction with our environment. The relevant coursework will cover the basics of Ayurveda, including systems of the body, lifestyle practices, the subtle energetic body, deeper and psychospiritual applications, and explorations of further study. Students have the option of completing their elective course work in Ayurveda Self Care as a focus in the Yoga Philosophy professional certificate program.
The Ayurveda Self Care courses are appropriate for yoga students, yoga teachers, yoga therapists who want to develop an understanding of Ayurvedic principles and philosophy and how to integrate practices that support yoga, wellness and balance into their daily lives.
Both Yoga and Ayurveda share a common view of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies; they have a common textual tradition, and offer overlapping teachings on how to benefit from the practices. Ayurveda and Self-Care will also provide students a set of practical tools to enhance their own well-being, prevent burn-out, reduce the ill effects of stress, and increase their capacity for practice.
General information including registration, faculty, course schedule, and policies are posted on the Yoga Philosophy home page. To register for one or both courses go to the LMU Extension Course Catalog.
