Beginning with a brief overview of the historical origins of Ayurveda and the different schools of Yoga philosophy that contributed to its development, this course is an exploration of the relevance of Ayurveda in our times, the practicalities of how Ayurveda can enhance not only a regular yoga practice, but also offer the yoga teacher guidelines to intuit and tools to cater to the needs of his or her students and yoga clients more effectively.

Learn the fundamental principles of anatomy and physiology from an Ayurvedic perspective (elements of constitution, main principles or humors, tissues or constructing elements of the body, waste products, the body’s spatial systems or energy channels (srotamsi), digestion, byproducts of overall balanced health). Also, gain insight into Ayurvedic concepts of mind and how it affects the body.
Practical exploration of the movement of prana and the energetics of specific yoga asanas and breathing techniques (pranayama). Experience and practice designing different yoga sequences to obtain specific desired effects. Take home simple lifestyle techniques for the longevity of the yoga teacher and practitioner, including food guidelines, daily routine recommendations, and self-care modalities.

This training includes the practice of specific teaching methodologies including empathic listening techniques, applications of the Cycle of Awareness® as proposed by Don Stapleton, Ph.D., backward curriculum mapping to produce useful lesson plans, methods for giving and receiving feedback, journaling for self reflection, and professional growth as well.

Claudia "Karuna" Saucy, M.Ed., CYT-500 
Karuna was initiated into yoga and meditation, and then introduced to Ayurveda at an early age. Independently she began exploring and applying Ayurvedic principles in her own life and quickly saw the positive results on her on health. After deepening her studies with Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Dr. David Frawley, and other pioneers in spreading Ayurveda to the West, she wrote a thesis for Long Island University titled "Taking Ayurveda Into the 21st Century" in which she developed the idea that individuals adopting simple and practical Ayurvedic lifestyle habits will naturally contribute to the overall well being of our communities and our society at large. Recently she completed a 500-hour yoga teacher training in Self-Awakening Yoga®, a 100-hour Ayurvedic study with Matthew Remski, author of Threads of Yoga, and a 50-hour Ayurveda and Yoga teaching certification with Chaya Sharon Heller. Holding a master’s degree in education, she has been teaching individuals how to positively change their lifestyles by combining yoga and Ayurveda for preventative health and longevity. Karuna is multilingual and has taught in Costa Rica, Canada, Italy, and the USA.
