Swasthavritta: Ayurvedic Approach to a Healthy Life is a theory based course which examines the importance, practice and maintenance of a holistic and healthy lifestyle. The science of Swasthavritta is most easily explained as a set of guidelines to follow for daily, seasonal, and hygienical upkeep of the mind, body, and spirit. The prime emphasis of this course is to connect the dots between Ayurveda and Hygiene, and how specific routines assist in maintaining strength and immunity for the prevention of disease and imbalance. More specifically, these routines include distinct dietetics, the importance of morning and evening regimes, and how to keep the doshas in a state of harmony through various practices provided by our vedic acharyas.
Further explained in the course of Swasthavritta is the clear layout of which particular actions and practices bring the doshas out of balance and cause disharmony as well. Contraindications are also listed in regards to improper food at improper times, incorrect food combining, and thoughts and feelings that may cause ill health. Swasthavritta provides the tools to achieve normal metabolic processes through the use of necessary herbs, spices, and ingredients. Additionally, asana, exercise and prayer are touched upon as measures that produce a balanced state of health.
Ayurvedic students will learn the basic requirements of a healthy human being, and how to combat unhygienic manifestations within the bodily systems. Upon completion of Swasthavritta: Ayurvedic Approach to a Healthy Life, the Ayurvedic practitioner student will possess the skills to properly guide their client’s through daily duties, seasonal duties, and general rules for social conduct in order to achieve happiness and wellness.
