2020 WEEKLONG TRAININGS

Ayurveda Postpartum Doula Training with Adena Bright and Allison Morse

Five Day Training at The Ayurvedic Center of Vermont

9:00-3:30 pm each day
COST: $995 PAID in FULL ($1,195 payment plan)
Food and accommodations not included

VSAC grants available to Vermont residents and NAMA PACE Credits will be available.

Serve the women and families in your community during a time of huge transition and growth by becoming an Ayurveda Postpartum Doula. The birth of a child is one of the most powerful and life-changing events in a woman’s life, and the care she receives during the immediate postpartum window can set her up for faster healing, easier mothering, and long-lasting well-being. During this training you will learn about pregnancy, birth and postpartum through the lens and language of Ayurveda, while receiving training in traditional postpartum care practices, balanced with practical understanding for modern women.

The Sacred Window of postpartum is considered to be 42 days, and it is said that how the woman receives care in those early days sets her up for the next 42 years of health. It is time for us to take back postpartum; to learn how to rest deeply, receive nourishment, and experience the power of being present.

Scope of practice:

Graduates will be able to offer postpartum support services including in-home Abhyanga massage, meals and meal planning as a business or as a gift — safely, within the Ayurvedic lense. Graduates are not considered Ayurvedic Health Counselors or Practitioners, nor are they able to treat or diagnose/assess imbalance from Western or Eastern perspective, unless within a separately held license/profession or certification.

This could complement your practice as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Practitioner or Doctor, herbalist, massage therapist, nurse, midwife, birth doula, or other healthcare provider. Vermont does not require a state license to do massage therapy.

Program agenda:
Ayurveda 101
Principles of postpartum care in Ayurveda

JYOTISH — VEDIC ASTROLOGY FOR HEALTH AND HEALING
Five Day Training at The Ayurvedic Center of Vermont with Richard Powell

9:00-3:30 pm each day
COST: $995 PAID in FULL ($1,195 payment plan)
Food and accommodations not included
VSAC grants available to Vermont residents and NAMA PACE Credits will be available.

Vedic Astrology is called Jyotisha in Sanskrit, which translates as “Lord of Light”. This is because of its unparalleled ability to illuminate one’s life and help to answer some of life’s greatest questions.

This week-long course will focus on the essentials of Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology) needed to understand a chart and to make basic predictions. It is designed specifically for health care providers of various disciplines, such as Ayurveda Practitioners, Chinese Doctors, Clinical Herbalists, etc., who may find it useful to understand basics of a client’s chart but will also be most useful to anyone wanting to explore and learn about this ancient science to enhance their own lives, health and well-being.

This course will give you a deep understanding of the core foundational principles of Jyotisha, including the planets, signs, houses, Nakshatras (lunar constellations), transits and exact phases of life. This will allow you to recognize imbalances and remedies according to what one’s chart shows. This course is not a means for one to offer Vedic Astrology sessions but rather a great starting point for the fundamentals in order to serve your clients, yourself or your friends and family with a deeper lense.

join us in this week long course on integrating Ayurvedic principles to enhance the quality of your yoga teaching and personal yoga practices.  We will start with understanding the history and philosophy behind these Vedic sister sciences and go deeper into the psychology and physiology of yoga.

Ayurveda teaches us how to personalize our yoga practices by the use of specific therapies to reduce doshic (vata, pitta and kapha) excess. We will learn doshic balancing asana and pranyama sequences according to your age, seasonal changes and one’s imbalanced states. We will also discover the importance of pranayama and asana practice in supporting a more fluid meditation.

The curriculum will include how to incorporate Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle remedies as well as how to regulate your digestion and the flow of prana which can either disturb or support your practice and often goes unnoticed.

In classical Yoga, Ayurveda was always integrated, but as yoga has been introduced to the West that has been somewhat lost as yoga has been more well known has as a physical therapy. This course will help us to continue as a community to reunite the practices of Yoga and Ayurveda for a deeper spiritual practice in reaching greater consciousness.

Discover one of the most significant measures of personal and clinical assessment in Ayurveda, “nadi vijnanan,” the art of reading the pulse. In this 3 day intensive, students will have the opportunity to begin, or deepen their awareness of how the impulse of life can be felt underneath the fingertips, revealing health, imbalance, and the state of vitality in our internal organ systems. Taught within the lineage of Dr. Vasant Lad’s system of pulse, students will gain insight into pulse theory, increase their intuition, and develop a sensitive awareness of the foundational elements of pulse: identifying qualities (guna) present in the individual, their birth constitution (prakruti), current state of imbalance (vikruti) and the state of vitality in individual organ systems. 

This class is open to both new and seasoned students of Ayurveda interested in deepening their understanding of nadi vijnanam. 

*The course provides a container for learning theory and practicing Ayurvedic pulse assessment and is not meant to serve as a definitive tool for diagnosing disease.

*Students are asked to provide their own lunches. 1 hour will be provided on Saturday and Sunday as lunch break. Tea is offered throughout the program.
