AYURVEDA & YOGA
Necessity of Studying Ayurveda Education
Ayurveda (the science of Life) is one of the ancient medical systems from India. Recently, Ayurveda is receiving accolades from medical practitioners from around the world for its in-depth understanding of how to heal from the root of illness, rather than working on prevention of symptoms. UN and WHO recognize Ayurveda an authentic medical system and many governments around the world, including USA, recognize Ayurveda as a complimentary therapy for legal and insurance purposes. Many people who tried Ayurveda Therapies from authentic places, can vouchsafe the efficacy of Ayurveda, beyond any theoretical doubts.
More than massages and therapies, Ayurveda is a vast science of living a Life in tune with Mother Nature and to let the Nature take care of the body! Ayurveda can help us in deciding the right diet, life style changes, and psychological attitude towards our body, which are at the root of all medical problems.
Ayurveda education provided in Ayurveda colleges is meant for doctors who need to spend three to five long years to study, all the Sanskrit works and train to be professional doctors. Ayurveda resorts and hospitals in Kerala, Goa and other parts of India, where one can try Ayurveda courses / therapies, do not explain or teach the underlying knowledge behind this great science of life.
So, ShinShiva Ayurveda Ashramam has decided to develop short term ayurveda courses with training and certification for common people to apply ayurveda in their daily lifestyle. These ayurveda courses are developed and taught by professional Ayurveda doctors from traditional Ayurveda families in Kerala, where Ayurveda is not just a medical system but a lifestyle for both body and mind.
Who can come?
The ayurveda training course is mostly designed to help doctors, nurses, yoga teachers, massage therapists, or any alternative medical practitioners, who already have a basic understanding of how the human body works. Basic background in modern anatomy and understanding of common illnesses would make it easier to understand Ayurveda from a scientific perspective.
Can a normal person without any medical/health background come for this course?
Of course, anybody who wants to learn about their own body and lead a healthy life is welcome.
