Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers and Students

Bringing Ayurveda into Your Life and Practice

Siva Raakhi Mohan, MD, MPH

Quick Overview

An accessible introduction to Ayurvedic teachings and the cultivation of the awareness that it brings.

Description

Writing for both yoga teachers and students of yoga, Siva Mohan explains the principles of Ayurveda and how it can be used as the framework from which to learn how to live a yogic life. As she says in her first chapter, 'One of my gifts is to show you how to fit Ayurveda into the container of your modern urban life. And then, use it to change the container entirely.'

This book teaches the basics in an accessible way, while always including the psychospiritual component. Siva offers guidance on how to apply the teachings of Ayurveda in a variety of settings and how to incorporate them into an integrative approach to health.

Reviews

'Dr. Siva has written an intelligent, personal and highly practical book for creating a workable Ayurvedic lifestyle. She seamlessly makes this ancient and often esoteric approach to healthcare completely accessible to the modern practitioner -and in the process, allows us to move towards one of the single most important issue facing humans today - healthcare revolution. Beautifully researched and expressed by Siva's own personal healer's journey, this is a book I will recommend to all of the students who work in my online Ayurveda certification programs. I highly recommend Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers and Students -not least for the insights Siva offers on what it means to practice the ancient art of Ayurveda with the type of deep authenticity that true wellness requires.'

Expressing the ancient science of Ayurveda through a modern urban lens is no easy task.
Dr. Siva Mohan has done it masterfully. Highly recommended for all Yoga and health professionals as well as students.

'Siva Mohan, MD, has written an excellent, practical guide for both teacher and student, based upon Ayurvedic principals. Ayurveda gives great importance to agni (digestive fire) and constitutional balance and she has given workable, step-by-step guidelines for balancing agni and dosha to unfold perfect health: the health of the body, mind and consciousness. This book will definitely support both teacher and student on their journey to wellbeing.'

Her approach requires no special medicines or herbs, just a willingness to be honest and watchful! Bravo!'

This is much more than a standard introduction to the basics of Ayurveda. Dr. Mohan provides a door into conscious, self-healing lifestyle, with an emphasis on emotional wellbeing.
Stories, case studies, and humor guide you to apply Ayurveda in your yoga practice, and daily decisions off the mat.
