Study Ayurveda at Ananda Spa Institute
Ayurvedic science is aimed at the preservation of health and prevention of disease by establishing balance and harmony through nutrition, herbs, meditation, and daily routines. Ayurvedic science provides knowledge to unfold the reality beyond the physical body and achieve harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit. The World Health Organization recognizes Ayurveda as a complete natural health care system.
Ayurveda is probably the oldest existing knowledge system on the healing process. It is based on an understanding of the complex interaction between man and nature. Hence Ayurveda's definition of health is not merely at the physical level but also at the mental, emotional, social, spiritual and environmental level.
Ayurveda treatment is based on the sustainable use of nature's offerings such as plant, mineral and animal products as well as various treatment modalities including diet and lifestyle modification, body treatments and internal medications. It is this all encompassing holistic approach that makes Ayurveda one of the fastest growing CAM (complementary and alternative) systems worldwide. Since Ayurveda places equal emphasis on both preventive and curative wellness, it is also becoming a treatment of choice in many spas globally.
The training methodology is a combination of theory, practical and interactive sessions, which include:
Exposure to the primary Ayurveda texts - the Charaka Samhita, Sushrutha Samhita and Ashtanga Hrdaya. Students will also be referred to other classical texts such as the Ashtanga Samgraha, Sarangdhara Samhita and Bhavaprakasha
Interactive sessions, organised to enable students to delve deeper into each topic to expand understanding
Hands-on work wherein students will work on each other in providing and receiving treatments
Students will also be encouraged to follow an Ayurveda way of life during the course so that they learn to consider their own wellness. Therapists/healers must be well in themselves before they can facilitate the healing of another.
