Description

Discover daily practices, rooted in the timeless, holistic wellness system of Ayurveda, to bring about vitality, balance, and harmony to mind, body, and spirit.

 

Dinacharya in Ayurveda means ‘daily routine’, and it’s a powerful way to cultivate positive change in your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

 

This two-day training focused on creating a daily routine with Ayurveda, is a rare opportunity to study with the highly respected Ayurvedic Doctor, Nisha Manikantan, who travels the world to teach the profound wisdom and practical insights of Ayurveda.

 

So, how do you maintain good health? How do you balance your individual constitution (dosha)? And how can you live an Ayurvedic lifestyle?

You will be guided through the basic Ayurveda routine step-by-step, including:

  • How to weave grounding and balancing practices into daily life, including cleansing and breathing exercises

  • How to use an Ayurvedic diet to support optimum health, with respect for seasonal and personal changes and imbalances

  • How to recognize the signs of being out of balance and make simple changes to find your center

You will take home a solid grounding in the Ayurvedic daily routine, with the knowledge and tools to action this routine in your daily life — or the lives of your clients.

 

Once you successfully complete the workshop, you will be eligible to take a certification test to lead Dinacharya workshops in your area.

 

This program is only open to Ayurvedic therapists, Art of Living teachers, yoga teachers, and other holistic well-being practitioners.
