Yoga Awareness Hawaii offers certified 40 - 400 hour Ayurveda Training with Tedd Surman in Honolulu, Oahu and Maui.
Ayurveda is one of the oldest healthcare systems known, originating over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda emphasizes re-establishing balance of the elements (dosha) in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise and body cleansing. When the dosha-s (vata, pitta, kapha) are balanced the body is healthy.
Tedd Surman, the founding director of Yoga Awareness, has studied since 2002 in India with an Ayurvedic doctor and since 2005 established a successful Ayurveda practice in Hawaii. Tedd shares his wealth of knowledge and practical Ayurvedic experience with three levels of training that range from 40 to 400 hours. What you will gain from these trainings is an understanding of yourself, people and the totality of life. Ayurveda is a meditation (dhyanam) of health and how to restore health. From this clarity you will have an ability for ‘self healing’ wellness and transformation, and develop a professional service for many others to benefit from.
Hawaii Ayurveda trainings are at our Downtown Honolulu studio in Oahu and attracts yoga students from the outer islands of Maui, Kauai and Big Island, the United States and internationally. These trainings are for everyone who has a desire for wellness and healing or for Ayurveda practitioners who are developing their clinical skills. You are invited to join us with these authentic Indian teachings starting with Ayurveda Healthcare and on successful completion continuing with the Ayurveda Advanced Studies and completing one-on-one with the Ayurveda Treatments Practicum.
These trainings are for students whose dharma (life purpose) is to share the teachings of Yoga and Ayurveda. This is comprehensive and rich, offering a unique way of integrating the profound and precious Eastern teachings, then applying them in the context of our modern Western lifestyles.
Only from a well-established foundation can a high caliber of therapists develop. This is a life commitment which will increase your 'self' awareness and personal growth. It grooms practitioners of Yoga Ayurveda to share Raja Yoga and the Teachings of Patanjali through the Krishnamacharya lineage and the ancient Ayurvedic teachings of the Charaka Samhita and Ashtanga Hydryam.
