The Science of Life
Natha’s profound and in-depth ayurveda course teaches us how to understand ourselves, through the way we are built, and the way we think and feel. Ayurveda is the oldest medical system we know about. It aims to create balance in our life, so that we maintain a good health at all levels of our being. Meaning physically, energetically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. All these aspects are according to ayurvedic medicine interconnected in ways we do not fully comprehend in todays Western medicine.
The Ayurvedic ‘Science of Life’ teaches you how to get to know your own constitution. In the tradition it is called ‘doshas’. There are three of them – kapha, pitta ,and vata. Our constitution determines what actions we need to take to balance our health, through the use of plants, meditation, and special techniques shedding light on our inner processes, which will all be an active part of course.
Ayurveda shares a deep insight into the use of plants. Not only medically, but also for personal development and deeper inner transformation. For example, how to overcome health challenges or using plants to trigger certain inner healing processes. Traditional plant medicine is extraordinary powerful and can even trigger healing process at a psychic level, due to their natural psychotropic effects, which acts through energetic resonance.

· Carefully studying and exploring how each of us is built and thus realizing the differences and similarities that are based on the three main constitutions (doshas). This personal exploration is both revealing and funny.

Good to know
The yogic energy doctrine is traditionally used in Eastern teaching systems and health doctrine, to get in touch with your ‘inner power’ or your Qi / Chi. If “everything is energy”, as Einstein came up with (E = MC2), your thoughts, feelings, and the substance of your psyche itself must also be a form of energy with an immeasurable vibration frequency. In your basic training, you are introduced to psychic power centers (chakras), meridians (energy paths), and general yogic anatomy. The connections are explained and it can help you to train and gradually master your mind, your body, and your energy system to something close to perfection.
The Spiral of Self-Development
Self-development is a bit like a spiral staircase. You encounter the same elements on each level, but in a new form. Balance for example. At the first level, physical balance is a criterion for moving to the next level, where energetic harmony brings you on to mental peace and emotional surplus, which in turn can lead to intellectual and creative inspiration, and lead you on to intuitive experiences and spiritual self-insight. It’s much more complicated than that. Often there is a dynamic exchange between the levels. However, it can be a good guiding illustration to understand what is meant by ‘going deeper’ in to the yogic training. To move from the surface of the body into the depths of the psyche and the centers of power.
We experience yoga as a kind of spiritual mountaineering. You’re the climber. Your propulsion on the slopes of the mountain is the gradual advancement in self-awareness and mastery of your inner power. Nothing is random. Everything is energy. A true yogi will always seek to master his body, as well as his mental and emotional energy, in order to use it for the goal he or she has set for himself or herself. In the yoga course you are equipped with the most advanced yoga equipment and you learn technique from experienced ‘mountaineers’, so that over time you can climb the most fascinating mountain peaks. We sometimes call it advanced human technology. The realization of our natural inner potential.
