Modern Ayurveda Online Course Level 1
This 10 week online course explores the fascinating world of Ayurveda and how to bring it into modern life. Ayurveda is the ‘science of life’ or the ‘art of longevity’, and offers an abundance of teachings, practices and lifestyle advice. This course covers the origins of Ayurveda and the authentic ancient practices, and teaches students how to make them accessible, relevant and beneficial in everyday life for a range of clients. From self-care practices like self massage with specific oils and the use of specific herbal blends, to yoga sequences, meditations, seasonal living and daily routines, course participants will be able to use what they learn in their own lives, as well as with students and clients after graduation.
The course includes live online classes, workshops and lectures, filmed yoga classes to practice and access any time (and keep forever!), guided meditations, assignments, recommended reading, and case study work. Upon successful completion of the course, graduates receive their certificate which will allow them to use this knowledge in their existing work, or as a basis for further training. Many people who take part in the course are therapists, yoga teachers, personal trainers, and those who wish to learn for their own interest. There are assignments and course work to complete throughout, giving each course student a thorough, embodied and genuine understanding of the teachings.
Please note that whilst the online classes are recorded for you to access afterwards and in case you cannot make the live date, it is much more beneficial for all course participants to be present for the live classes on Wednesday evenings 6-7:30pm. Upon successful graduation, you’ll receive your Modern Ayurveda certificate, which is accredited by the IPHM, meaning you can add your newfound knowledge to your existing work and offerings.
NEW COURSE DATES ANNOUNCED. PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR THE NEXT COURSE STARTING OCTOBER 2021.
(ALL SESSIONS 6-7:30PM). Available as a self-study option with recorded sessions and regular check-ins.

Pre-course work: Develop a practice of Abhyanga or ‘self massage’. Abhyanga involves using a specific oil depending upon your mind-body ‘type’ according to Ayurveda, and massaging the body in a slow and mindful way. Course students are asked to practice this at least three times per week before the course starts, as a way to build confidence in giving hands-on massage, to develop intuitive touch, and enhance their relationship and respect for their own body. Your mind-body type and the specific oil to use can be discussed upon booking.
Post-Course work: Design a yoga and relaxation session, outlining the postures, adjustments, props, sounds, massage techniques and any guided meditations you’d use. Describe why you chose each posture and technique, and what affect this would have on the mind and body of the person practicing. Present the course either in essay form (800-1000 words), with photos and accompanying notes, or a video and accompanying notes. To be completed within 1 month of the course date.
