"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.

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 this unique course?
In this course, you will learn why Ayurveda has the most comprehensive knowledge of nutritional health, lifestyle guidelines, and dietary principles which 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-layered approach to creating total health (“svastha” in sanskrit). 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 how to live in harmony with the greater universe.
The courses are open to everyone, no health or yoga background is needed. The courses present a unique learning opportunity to RYTs, YTTs, health coaches, or anyone considering a broader, more committed study in Ayurveda. You can take each part alone, but Part I is a prerequisite for Part II.

“Marma” points are a map of the body’s sacred physiology, directing subtle energy currents to connect the body to the mind and spirit. This energetic attunement is a vehicle to reach the ultimate goal of Āyurveda: perfect health, firmly rooted in a vibrantly alive body and fully awakened mind. Because these sacred points are vessels of prana, this therapy can be powerful in removing emotional blockages, improve energy flow, and make connections with the greater powers of life and nature. This course is designed to help you map the marma points on the body, understand the unique power of marma therapy and learn how to harness the secrets of the sacred physiology to transform the body and mind.
Some foundational knowledge of Ayurveda is recommended, but not required.
Ideal for energy workers, yoga teachers, or anyone interested in the self-healing power of marma.
