Program

In the Ayurveda yoga detox course, you will explore the principles and philosophy that Ayurveda, the science of living, is based on. Historically, Ayurveda was viewed as inextricably linked to eastern culture, whilst in the west as an esoteric science. Nowadays, it is becoming more accepted as a credible science that can be very beneficial to mankind.

As a complete science, it can relate and offer guidance to every aspect of human life, guidance that has been tested and refined over many centuries to all those who seek greater harmony, peace, and longevity. In this Ayurveda yoga detox course, you will examine how the key concepts and philosophical approach the science takes are applied practically. 

As the original texts of Ayurveda were written in the Sanskrit language, the terms that hold the specific meanings will be referred to in this language. The translations can’t give accurate meanings, therefore the root and meaning of the Sanskrit terms will be discussed. According to Ayurveda, health is not only the absence of pain or diseases but the holistic approach of life, including the mental, social and spiritual components. 

In the same way, the treatment system of Ayurveda is not merely prescribing drugs but to treat the patient as a whole, through a holistic approach. In recent years, the Eastern sciences such as Ayurveda and Yoga have attained the attention of the world. 

The demands for such practices are increasing day by day, and they continue to show great success in providing healthiness and happiness to humanity. So, come and learn about these sciences and achieve greater harmony, peace, and longevity in life.

The primary goal of Ayurveda is to prevent illness, and the secondary goal is to treat disease. In this Ayurveda yoga detox course, you will explore what exactly is the state of being healthy, and how to treat disease using the ancient techniques of Ayurveda. Eastern philosophy purports that the key to understanding is acceptance, observation, and experience, rather than focusing on questioning, data, and analysis. 

The course will explore in depth the eastern approach to health and disease. The Ayurveda yoga detox course is designed to impart the fundamentals of Ayurveda like Doshas, Agni, Dhatus, Malas, Pancha mahabhootas and others. You will also briefly study the Prakriti (body/ mind constitution), the cornerstone of Ayurvedic theory. 

Initially, you will focus on the daily regimen (the do’s and dont’s according to Ayurveda) where you will start to observe and experience the preventive aspect of Ayurveda. Along with this, you will participate and experience in the special Ayurveda body detox program i.e Panchakarma after special consultation with our Ayurvedic doctors. 

Panchakarma (body detox therapies) is beneficial for preventive as well as for curative purposes. A substantial body of research has been done on this treatment and it is regarded as a highly credible treatment in both preventive and curative aspects, and further Panchakarma is regarded as rejuvenating (anti-aging) in nature. 

The Ayurveda yoga detox course also includes an Ayurveda hospital visit, where you will witness the protocol of treatment that undergoes there. You will also have substantial teachings on the use of Ayurvedic herbs, some being commonly used such as turmeric, ginger, gooseberries, pepper, cardamom, and others. 

Nepal is rich in natural, potent herbs and our course includes a day visit on the herbal garden where you can view these invaluable planted herbs. This Ayurveda yoga detox course also includes classes focused on the various systems of the body and how they function, and also the nature of some diseases. 

The course will be interactive with plenty of opportunities for students to voice their queries about the disease, herbs, and others. In this Ayurveda yoga detox course, you will also provide daily yoga and meditation sessions by highly experienced and knowledgeable yoga teachers. Special Ayurvedic vegetarian diets are provided ensuring that you will be residing in the appropriate proper body-mind environment to learn about this highly revered health science.
