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 in her clinic in Vermont and at The Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico, where she did her training in the Panchakarma clinic for five years, under the guidance of world renowned Ayurvedic Physician, Dr. Vasant Lad.

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.

Only 12 spaces available, so sign up soon!
Deposit due at time of registration.

Dr. Claudia Welch & Dr. Robert Svoboda  teach in Stowe, Vermont, May 2015

Advanced Introduction to Beginning Ayurveda

In the beautiful setting of the Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa, Dr. Claudia Welch and Dr. Robert Svoboda plan to teach daily for two weeks, in the first of a number of planned intensives to take students from the beginning of Ayurveda through to more advanced topics.
In this two-week module, we intend to address the philosophical and practical foundations of Ayurveda, and to introduce Ayurveda’s basic principles in a way that will hopefully be meaningful, and practically applicable both to students who wish to apply them in their own lives, and to those who wish to further pursue the study of Ayurveda in order to practice it professionally.
Drs. Svoboda and Welch plan to present what they have found to be the most practically essential elements of Ayurveda, both in personal health, and in preparation as a practitioner.
