Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy

with Chinnamasta Stiles

A live virtual training, July 12-14 and 19, 2024

This training is based on an integration of teachings from Patanjali's Classical text the Yoga Sutras and Chinnamasta & Mukunda Stiles' insights into Ayurvedic Yoga. The methodology incorporates Classical Hatha, Tantra, and Raja Yoga and it is both profoundly practical and deeply spiritual. The training covers practices of Mukunda Stiles' book, Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy, and is taught by Chinnamasta.

As a result, students will:

  • Receive insight into the “gunas” or qualities of nature and their interpretation and application
  • Discover the pillars of health
  • Learn practical tools to support your personal sādhanā, or practice, prevent illness and support health and well-being
  • Includes daily talks on the Sutras of Patanjali Chapter II, integrating an āyurvedic and yogic point of view

This 24-hour course is a module in our Level 1 Foundations in Yoga Therapy. Yoga teachers from outside our training are welcome to attend on a drop in basis.

Daily Schedule: The course meets on Zoom July 12-14 from 7am – 3pm PT and on Jan 12 from 7am – 12:30 pm PT, with breaks throughout. Each sessions will include, lecture, discussion and practice.

About Chinnamasta

Chinnamasta (C-IAYT, NAMA-CAYT, LMT, PCPN-AC, JYOTISHA), is the Director of  Shiva Shakti Loka in Collioure, France. With more than 30 years of experience, she is a Teacher and Vedic Counselor in multi-dimensional health for people from all walks of life and in all stages of life. Chinnamasta started her professional life as an Intensive Care pediatric nurse, developing the skill to observe and interpret what the children weren’t able to verbalize. This continues to serve her today in understanding beyond what her clients are capable of seeing or telling.

After 12 years, she felt a strong calling to move into holistic healing. Over the next 30 years she studied Yoga & Tantra, Jyotisha, and Āyurveda. While Western medicine taught her how to work with the physical structure, Eastern medicine deepened her understanding of how to help people gracefully deal with difficulty, prevent illness, and live a joyful life. By blending these two modalities, Chinnamasta guides her students and clients in how to become the masters of their own health and healing, leading to a purposeful life of deep contentment connected to the Self. 

Her home base and private practice are based in Collioure, France. >>Read more about Chinnamasta
