"I’m so grateful to Ileana for finally offering these classes on Ayurveda. Her style of teaching is very simple, succinct and comprehensive. She made the various Ayurvedic concepts and principles easy to understand which I found very helpful. Additionally, being in a small group setting was extremely helpful as it gave the course more 1-1 feeling. She explained things in great detail with patience and encouragement for us to further explore our interest in Ayurveda. I definitely and highly recommend seeing Ileana for Ayurvedic consultations, treatments and of course taking the Ayurveda workshops with her. She’s the absolute best!" - Sabbi H.
"My time with Ileana was the most enlightening experience of my life. Not only is Ileana’s knowledge of Ayurveda extensive she is also a great teacher. Thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and my interest in Ayurveda has deepened. I hope to spend more time with Ileana and highly recommend everyone who wants to gain more knowledge about Ayurveda." - Zahra K

Why should you learn more about the ancient Indian science Ayurveda?
Ayurveda literally means the 'knowledge of life'; it is a sister science to Yoga. It is the science and practice of living in harmony with the universe, the seasons, nature, and yourself, in order to achieve and maintain quality health and sustained wellbeing. Ayurveda and Yoga may be thousands of years old, but our planet needs it now more than ever.
Not only does Ayurveda give you natural and powerful solutions to your problems, it also prescribes the most effective ways to proactively prevent ill-health and build immunity by instructing you about how to live a balanced lifestyle, become more in-tune with nature and her cycles, to create dramatic shifts in your overall wellbeing. If you have an interest in wellness, becoming a healer, or you just want to improve your own health, Ayurveda provides sustainable solutions.
What will you learn in the Ayurveda Immersion and Foundations course?
In the upcoming Immersion and Foundations courses, you will learn why Ayurveda has the most comprehensive knowledge of nutritional health, lifestyle guidelines, and dietary principles to affect healing at physical, mental and spiritual levels, and for different types of people. You will come away with an understanding of how you can support your own healing and growth with Ayurveda’s multi-modality approach to creating optimal health. We will explore why Ayurveda is emerging as one of the most important global systems of mind-body medicine, by revealing how to understand the language of nature, and live in harmony with the greater universe.
The courses are open to everyone, no health or yoga background needed; and they present a unique learning opportunity to RYTs, YTTs, health coaches, or anyone considering a broader, more committed study in Ayurveda.
Level I – Immersion
12 classroom hours. 1 weekend intensive
Through an exploration of the basic language and principles of Āyurveda, participants will learn to promote wellness through a variety of Ayurvedic inspired practices and further understand this ancient science by applying the knowledge to their own lives.
The course introduces Ayurveda’s unique system of describing and classifying the various divisions of the body’s innate intelligence, called the 3 Doshas--Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The course outlines the important principles of this ancient approach, and allows the individualization of diet, herbs, food, and other natural lifestyle recommendations of Ayurveda.
Includes handouts/other material. $375
Level II - Foundations
25 classroom hours 2 weekend intensive
This course builds on the Level I Immersion, leading the student through an understanding of classical Ayurveda and its applications for the promotion of health.
This Level includes an apprenticeship program providing participants an opportunity to apply the knowledge with hands-on experience. The course provides simple but very effective health management strategies to guide the participant toward a state of balance of mind and body. Topics covered include personal integration of concepts and making positive lifestyle changes. Students experience self-healing and are therefore better equipped to share the knowledge with their clients and students.
