Ayurveda Basic Course 1/2: Concepts and Factors of Disease

Study the "knowledge of life

Ayurveda, the knowledge of life study is an immersion in the holistic aspects of philosophy, anatomy, physiology and disease of traditional Indian medicine. Ayurvedic science is presented not only from its classical side of ancient Indian thought, but also in modern form for integration into everyday life.

By means of a wealth of examples, basic Ayurvedic knowledge about Doshas, Dhatus, Srotas, Agni, Malas and other aspects of the technical terminology is brought to life and provides a practical reference to one's own life situation.
Learn to look at life from an Ayurvedic perspective and gain a new approach to health, illness and yourself.

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