Ayurveda Basic Course 2/2: Constitution and Healing Science

Study the therapeutic approaches of Ayurveda

Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, is known for its holistic and individual approach to therapy. To understand this in its diversity and complexity is the goal of this 2nd part of the Ayurveda basic course. In addition to the 1st part of the basic course - concepts and disease factors (ABK) you will now learn the practical approaches and methods of Ayurvedic healing and therapy.

The focus of this seminar is on Ayurvedic treatment methods, which are individually adapted to the constitution with its physical and psychological aspects. By means of a wealth of examples, the seminar establishes the connection to practical everyday questions and situations and provides an orientation for a healthier way of life that is tailored to one's own needs.

You will learn how to determine your Ayurvedic constitution and receive a sound introduction to the diagnostic procedures and therapeutic methods of Ayurvedic medicine. Health-preserving measures and the basics of Ayurvedic dietetics and food science will also be discussed in detail. With this you will gain an overview of the whole building and the ancient Indian science and understand the holistic and individual approach of the Ayurvedic therapy methods.

The basic course is the basis for further training at the European Academy of Ayurveda. It consists of two parts (Concepts and Disease Factors (ABK) and Constitution and Healing (ABH)), which provide you with knowledge and orientation for your further path with Ayurveda. Extensive accompanying material complements the professional teaching.
