Ayurveda and Yoga are two interconnected traditional Indian health systems for body, mind and soul. These two sister sciences support each other to provide a healing health system to the yoga practitioner or Ayurveda patient.
Both Yoga and Ayurveda have their origins in the Sat Dharmas, the six Orthodox philosophies in India, are more than 5000 years old systems and are based on the Samkhya philosophy. Both focus on your holistic health, called Swastha, including your physical, mental and spiritual health, with yoga focusing more on the well-being of the mind and Ayurveda on your physical body.
Together, they create the perfect mix of practices and treatments to bring more value to your life.
In this 80-hour training to become a certified Ayurveda yoga teacher, you will learn how to integrate Ayurveda into your yoga teachings and the everyday life of your students and are able to design yoga lessons according to the Guidelines of Ayurveda with a focus on, for example, the Prakriti, the season and the day.
In addition, you will be trained to give private yoga Ayurvedic sessions for your clients as well as to conduct Ayurveda Yoga Health Coaching to improve or maintain the health of your clients.

About the region
Kerala is home to many Christians, so you can visit not only Hindu temples and mosques, but also many churches. In many places you almost feel like in southern Europe, because many Portuguese settled here during the colonial period and traded.
From November to March it is pleasantly warm and you only need light clothing. On most beaches of Kerala you can bathe in normal swimwear. On the remote beaches, it is advisable to put on a T-shirt. Women in particular often attract unwelcome glances from local and Indian tourists, as it is not common in India for women to show too much skin. From March the temperatures will rise and it will be humid, so you can dehydrate a lot. From June to the end of September is rainy season, and many seasonal accommodations and restaurants have closed. During this time it rains quite heavily, but is an ideal time for an Ayurveda retreat.
What you should bring:
light knee- and shoulder-covering clothing (thighs and tunic, shirt and wide trousers, knee-covering dresses (also shorts and tops possible)
Clothing for Yoga
old clothes (underwear, shirts, trousers) for treatments with oil and pastes
Scarf or scarf
Sandals or flip-flops
Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Head
own toiletries, but not too much, as many Ayurvedic products are available here
small bag / backpack for excursions
Passport (copy), credit or bank card, cash in your currency (approx. € 50)
Camera, phone, charger (no adapter required)
Notebook and writing material
