Practitioners of Yoga-Ayurveda agree that Yoga-Ayurveda is a holistic system that encourages healing and empowers the student or patient. With the philosophical pillars of both yoga and Ayurveda coming together, one gets to integrate practical and theoretical methods to work with both body and mind.

This is simple to say, but to practice such an approach to Yoga within a rational and authentic framework requires much study, reflection, Ayurvedic Training and attention to detail is needed. Two simple rules govern our approach: logic and, a detailed Ayurvedic Course.

At Ayush we examine the definition, approach, and tools of Yoga as a therapy, starting from the ancient texts on Yoga and fine tune it with Ayurveda’s rules and regulations to produce an effective programme that will benefit not just the student but the recipient of their therapy as well. 

A Modern Approach to Yoga Therapy

The common word for treatment in Sanskrit is cikitsâ. The word cikitsâ is derived from the root kit vyâdhipratîkâre, meaning to oppose disease. “Yoga therapy” can be written in Sanskrit as yoga-cikitsâ, which means to use Yoga to oppose disease or ill-health. 

Today, the greatest difficulty in addressing Yoga therapy can sometimes lie in dispelling the confusion that already exists. Different “styles” and “traditions” crowd the field of Yoga today, with conflicting theories and methods. 

Many current “styles” of Yoga are based on differences in the physical practices of Yoga, combined with a proposed relation to psychology.

Why is the Ayush Ayurveda programme different 

In developing an approach to Yoga therapy, our Ayush therapists are clear that treatment should be based on authenticity and detailed Ayurvedic Training.  Ayush has defined Yoga-Ayurveda therapy as the application of Yoga to individuals to empower them to progress towards greater health and freedom from disease.

Ayush’s Ayurvedic Studies Program is an understanding of the relevant factors influencing an illness allows the therapist to prioritize the application of tools of Yoga as appropriate to the problem and the individual.

Therefore, Ayush’s approach to Yoga-Ayurveda therapy begins by considering the factors that influence health and disease. All diseases can be classified as principally affecting the body or the mind.

This Ayurvedic Course aims to provide learners with a more honed ability to analyse the patients’ mental makeup and their needs from a Yoga-Ayurveda Therapy perspective and create effective rebalancing yoga classes and programs to meet those needs.

What does the Ayush Ayurveda programme offer 

Offered in Singapore by Ayush Ayurveda Academy, the course aims to impart professional skills and knowledge in Ayurvedic massage and therapy. We focus on the holistic professional development as a massage therapist and provide you with a meaningful career path for life.

This Ayurvedic Course prepares the student for a career in the healthcare field. The Ayush graduate is able to provide diet, lifestyle (vihara) and wellness support by integrating constitutional assessment, nutritional knowledge, healthy lifestyle management, and introductory counselling skills.

Some of the courses are designed around Yoga-Ayurveda therapy for health management,  introductory Ayurvedic psychology, bodywork therapies and subtle therapies, etc. This Ayurvedic Course has experts who will guide the student with ongoing supervision.


Through Ayush’s teaching programmes and Ayurvedic Training, students have an opportunity to apply their knowledge and design individual therapeutic practices for both individuals and groups.
