Join us in Spring 2020 for the first Advanced Ayurveda Training in India, where we have the chance to study, experience and live Ayurveda in the birthland of this beautiful science. We will be staying and studying as a group at the famous Vaidyagrama Resort, frequented by many of my teachers, including Claudia Welch and Robert Svoboda. They have excellent Ayurvedic vaidyas (doctors) who will be teaching us daily from their immense clinical knowledge and expertise. Daily instruction will be approximately 5 hours from the vaidyas, plus another 1-2 hours review time with me. In addition, there will be guided tours of their hospital, Panchakarma center, herbal pharmacy and factory etc. Our daily schedule will be very much in tune with life at the center, including morning prayers and rituals, mantra chanting and evening satsangs.
