150 Hour India Ayurveda Immersion

January 13th - 27th 2020

This 15-day intensive takes place at our affiliate Institute in Pune, India. For several years the Dancing Shiva School has established a close affiliation with the fully accredited International Academy of Ayurveda (IAA). ACP students will experience the unique opportunity of participating in specialized classes given by Mas Vidal and the faculty of the institute. The material covered in the classes includes expansive (more advanced & in depth) coverage of the material listed in the main curriculum. The main difference gained from participating in studies in India is substantial. Firstly, to study at an Indian Ayurvedic institute is unique to our affiliation with IAA, as this is not commonly permitted at Indian institutes. As international students you receive the direct cultural experience, classes given by an Indian faculty, experience of observing actual patient cases (encounters) in an ayurvedic clinic and access to an extensive library and dedicated departments for each main topic of Ayurvedic education. Those interested in attending this program who have not completed our course are welcome to join us.

Curriculum topics include:

~ Kaya Chikitsa (Internal Ayurvedic Medicine)
Pancha Karma (Clinical Ayurvedic Treatments)
Womens Ayurveda-Gynecology 
~ Herbology
~ Yoga Asana & Pranayama Therapy according to Ayurvedic Principles.
