In this six week online e-course, create a healthy and sustainable lifestyle based on the principles of Ayurveda (one of the oldest forms of traditional medicine) and yoga philosophy.
One of the key principles of Ayurveda is to create balance between body, mind and spirit through proper diet, exercise and lifestyle choices. Ayurveda recommends seasonal cleansing to remove excess toxins (called ama in Sanskrit)because it focuses on prevention rather than treatment. Furthermore, Ayurveda incorporates restorative (called rasayana in Sanskrit) practices to cultivate balance and harmony.
In the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse e-course, you will discover your Ayurvedic constitution (your baseline for health). Another key aspect of the course is to begin kicking unhealthy habits that leave you feeling depleted. In addition, you will learn how to shop, eat and practice yoga according to your constitution for optimal health and vitality. Finally, you will learn how to integrate Ayurveda and yoga purification techniques into your daily (dinacharya) and seasonal (ritucharya) routine for a complete body, mind and spirit detox.
The weekly lectures will help you create a healthy foundation by learning about Ayurveda and yoga. By the end of the e-course, you will be able to integrate a variety of techniques such as the use of herbs, oils and self-massage to combat the stress of daily living.
I LOVE our sangha (community). It’s women bearing their hearts & soul, uncensored, working towards self-discovery and personal growth. I hear all the time from our members that they didn’t know how much they missed this intimate and authentic connection until they arrive.
Another key aspect that is central to, both, Ayurveda and yoga is purification. Therefore, throughout the e-course, you will be able to experiment with a variety of techniques to cleanse both the physical and energetic (koshas, nadis & chakras) bodies.
Ayurveda and yoga teach that you are deeply connected to Mother Nature. Due to this relationship, you will learn to practice yoga according to the doshas. In addition, you will learn how the different rhythms of the day, season and your specific dosha affect your yoga practice.
“The whole yoga path is an extensive process of purification” ~ Sri Swami Satchidananda
While Ayurveda focuses more on healing and health, the ultimate aim of yoga is Self-realization. When combined together, they create a holistic system and approach to healthy living. The single most important benefit of the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse is that it is a lifestyle shift. In other words, it is not a quick fix weight loss scheme. As a result, you will learn to make choices that are sustainable and support your health and vitality.
There are many benefits of the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse. First of all, your digestion will improve which will help eliminate bloating and gas. Secondly, you will build a stronger immune system by igniting your digestive fire. In addition, you will have more energy, less fatigue and greater mental clarity. Finally, you will experience total emotional well-being as you remove the habits that cause your energy levels to crash.
Finding Carrie and the Sacred Sangha was like discovering a treasure chest filled with gold nuggets of guidance and inspiration. Her e-courses are rich with theory and practice informed by almost two decades of practice and study. Each week's lesson builds on the previous one in a logical and cohesive manner. I like having the option to use some or all of the components of each module as time, interest, and learning style allows. Carrie responds to personal questions and actively participates in the group forum, so while it is a self-study e-course, I appreciated her warm, guiding presence throughout the six weeks.
I love so many things about Carrie Hensley’s e-courses — the content is substantial without feeling overwhelming, I can work at my own pace and take what I need from each week’s lesson, I can share and connect with other e-course students online — but what stands out most is Carrie’s authentic, passionate, and wise voice. Her guidance and support throughout the courses helps me to understand the material more fully and to explore and truly transform my thought processes. I look forward to every new course Carrie offers because I know each one will provide me with new insights and new ways of living a positive, self-aware life.
I am passionate about yoga and Ayurveda because they have changed my life. Not only that, they have, both, helped my husband heal from chronic joint pain and inflammation. Because they have made such an impact on our lives, it is my mission to help amazing souls, like YOU, on your own path to health and healing. It is my intention to educate, inspire and empower you to detoxify your body, mind and spirit in order to thrive.
Both Ayurveda and yoga philosophy teach that you have a purpose for being here. However, through conditioning, such as old beliefs and negative habits, you become disconnected from this innate truth. It is my purpose to help guide you home. By the end of this e-course, you will be able to integrate specific tools and techniques into your lifestyle, such as the use of herbs and self-care practices. Hence, you will be able to peel back the layers of toxicity and experience total freedom, balance and inner peace.
While many cleanses focus on short-term weight loss, during the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse will learn to make subtle and slow changes to create a long-term healthier lifestyle rooted in a system 5000 years old.
A cleanse is essential because you are constantly being bombarded by chemicals, toxins, and emotional & environmental stress. Therefore, a cleanse is like hitting the reset button for your body & mind. Furthermore, a cleanse helps boost your immunity and reignites your digestive fire, which is the center of health and well-being according to Ayurveda.
Due to the length of the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse, the side effects should be minimal. Since the e-course is 6-weeks, you will begin to integrate the changes slowly and conscientiously. Consequently, as you remove toxins slowly, not only will you help minimize side effects, you will, ultimately, implement lasting and sustainable change. You could experience slight discomfort such as head aches, nausea, fatigue, irregular sleeping, irritability and/or emotional release.
You can invest as little as 10 minutes per week or as much as one to two hours because the goal of the cleanse is to implement life long changes that are sustainable. While many cleanses focus on the short term goal of weight loss, the ultimate goal of the Sacred Sangha Ayurveda and Yoga Spring Cleanse is to empower you to become accountable for your own health and happiness.
