Did you know that Pilates originally is a Body-Mind-Spirit practice? This is why I use techniques of Ayurveda in my classes to speak to the three layers of the practice as they were always meant to be taught together. Ayurveda is ancient mother nature wisdom — the Art of Living in Harmony with the Laws of Nature.
In the Pilates Industry in general only the Body is trained. It is trained into a system that doesn’t necessarily allow clients to express and embrace who they are on the level of the mind body spirit. How often do clients walk in and talk about their pain? How do we assess and then move them towards balance to decrease pain in the level of mind, body, spirit for each individual?
As an Ayurvedic Health Counselor and pilates teacher I want you as teachers to be healers not exercise leaders. In my opinion this ancient wisdom can give you incredible tools to go in that direction.
Ayurveda helps me to understand my student’s personal constitution & read their needs and potential imbalances on a daily level.
I studied Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Institute of New Mexico with renowned teacher Dr. Vasant Lad where I started my personal Ayurveda journey. I was able to heal my own harmonal imbalances and diseases and found a way to a more balanced life.
This is my passion project coming direclty from my heart and I am excited to finally being able to offer this course to Pilates Teachers. A 15 hours online experience via Zoom taught in 5 weekends.
