About yoga therapy and the training
Originally, there are 84 asanas in yoga plus their variations, which are commonly practiced as different styles around the world. However, ayurveda - one of the most ancient health wisdoms on this planet, teaches us the universal truth that we all are different even from the time of our birth, and thus following a general program for everyone is not appropriate. According to ayurveda we all need to choose individuality designed programs to practice in our daily life to achieve our maximum health and wellbeing.
Whether it’s about your diet or exercise or any other disciplines you practice in your daily life you need to select them according to your body-mind constitution or adapt them according to your present health condition or imbalances/symptoms. This is the reason Ayurveda emphasizes choosing the right yoga asanas for your daily practice according to your present health status. Hence the practice of yoga without knowledge of ayurveda is incomplete. But when you start to practice yoga with the light of Ayurveda your knowledge becomes your wisdom, your experience your Guru and your practice your therapy.
Yoga Therapy is a holistic and therapeutic approach to the science of yoga where you use the tools of yoga as a way to bring yourself into the balanced according to the philosophy of ayurveda. In Ayurveda Yoga Therapy we focus on each person’s individual needs and provide a program to help any physical or mental symptoms. That means, Ayurveda Yoga Therapy is always done one to one, the therapist to the client.
Through the AYTT (Ayurveda Yoga Therapy Training) you will learn how to guide your client with the right yoga program for his/her specific imbalance and symptom or disease.
You will understand the different techniques and adjustments of the therapeutic asanas in yoga. Moreover you will experience the different yoga programs by yourself and feel how some programs are actually not suiting your constellation or imbalance. During the course we will share these experiences within the group so that we can reach a wider awareness of how our clients might feel if they are practicing the wrong kind of program. This is also a way to understand why we from the Ayrvedic view point mean that you should practice yoga with an individual program rather than a general yoga class.
To personalise your time at this course even more, at the start of the second week, you will meet the ayurveda physician for a private consultation which will help you to know about your PDE (presently dominating elements) in your body-mind systems. And onwards, according to the diagnose results from the physician you will be able to practice your own yoga programs which including your self practice in the morning as well as eating individually prepared meals served from our Ayurveda kitchen.
Based on the wisdom and your own experiences during the first two weeks of the AYTT, the third week you will start to teach each other to be prepared to take on clients after the course.
For further information about the AYTT and application, write to the course administrator at Vaidya’s Ayurveda Academy at Healing River, Alleppy district, Kerala State, India.

Can I use the AYTT to take my yoga practice to the next level?
If you are a yoga practitioner, it is very important to know the ‘right’ yoga program that will help you to achieve your maximum FBS (Flexibility, Balance and Strength). Though most yoga asanas you are presently practicing on your mat are believed to be good, AYTT will open your eyes to find that some of the asanas are better and a few among them are even the best for your body-mind constitution. When you gain the knowledge of the asanas’ therapeutic effects in your body and mind system, you will be able to make your own program at any age and health condition.
