Advanced Introduction to Beginning Ayurveda II
Dr. Claudia Welch & Dr. Robert Svoboda teach in Stowe, Vermont
Abhyanga Massage Training
September 19-20, 2015
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Ayurvedic Center of Vermont
Join Allison Morse, owner of The Ayurvedic Center of Vermont for this hands-on Abhyanga massage training. Allison has 15 years of experience as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, a certified Yoga teacher and has given thousands of Abhyanga massages.
Abhyanga is an ancient massage technique from India, which is done with herb-infused oils that are prepared specifically for your physical and mental constitution. The warm oil deeply calms the nervous system, penetrates the tissues and loosens toxins from cell and tissue structures. Abhyanga draws out impurities and improves immunity by increasing lymphatic circulation. The body and mind experience stillness, deep peace and relaxation. A wonderful therapeutic treatment to add to your client’s healing process.
This training requires a foundation of knowledge in Ayurveda (which will not be covered in the course) and some bodywork training is ideal, but not necessary. The course will cover training for a one therapist Abhyanga treatment, but traditional Abhyanga with two therapists will also be demonstrated. Students will have time and space to practice on each other, with careful supervision. Learning this repetitive sequence of strokes is easy and meditative.
Deposit due at time of registration.
Learn To Safely Guide Your Clients Through a Home Cleanse
Mentorship for Ayurvedic Practitioners with Allison Morse
- Starting August 2015
- Cost $399
- 4 Live Group Sessions (1 hour each) and 2 Private Sessions (1 hour each). Group sessions are done on live conference calls.
- Accepting only 12 students.
Over the years I’ve received numerous phone calls from practitioners that have found themselves in way too deep with seeing clients or groups of students through cleanses and are not well equipped for what can transpire during these sometime dramatic shifts that take place. Although such a wonderful tool for practitioners to work with, seeing clients through cleanses is not so easy and safe all of the time. I have seen thousands of clients through home cleanses and clinical Panchakarma during the past 15 years and really want to help other practitioners be able to use these protocols in a safe, authentic and effective way.
Pre-requisite: Graduated from an accredited Ayurvedic school with a minimum of one year of training. Have done an Ayurvedic home cleanse yourself at least once before. Individual screening for acceptance will be done over the phone with Allison.
Dates: The four live group sessions will be held on Wednesdays starting August 19 through September 9, 2015, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
During the mentorship you will:
- Learn about the physical, spiritual and emotional “side-effects” of Ayurvedic cleanses and how to see your clients through these transitions.
- Be given three different outlines for cleanses that you can begin working with.
- Understand indications and contraindication for detoxing.
- Have the opportunity during our time to see your own clients and/or students through a cleanse with my support.
- Learn the importance of post cleanse guidelines.
- Have one-on-one guidance to answer questions that arise
