Holistic Wellness: Certified Course on Yogic Nutrition and Lifestyle with Dario Calvaruso

Āyurveda Maulika Siddhānta (6-hr Theory) 


The term "Āyurveda" comes from the Ārya language (Sanskrit language) "Āyus" + "Veda" (lit. the Science of Life). Āyurveda imparts the knowledge of life and discusses the means for attaining life's goals and longevity.  Āyurveda has changed and evolved in the course of the last two millenniums but has kept always intact the basic theoretical principles on which the entire system is based.


These fundamental principles (Maulika Siddhānta) can be integrated into our life, the practice of yoga and teaching. The programme is meant to introduce yoga teachers, aspirant yoga teachers and anyone interested in the subject with the basic intellectual tools necessary to engage in a serious study of the subject and its application.


The workshop’s concept

Improving one's life and becoming a “yoga teacher” is a continuous process of education that is refined through many years of study, practice and teaching experience. In this long process, the theory and the practice are regarded as equally important. The Maulika Siddhānta 6-hour Accredited Teacher Training Programme is a certified theoretical programme which provides the participants with the basic understanding of the subject.
