Embarking on a new journey uniting Yoga and Ayurveda


Embarking on a new journey uniting Yoga and Ayurveda this summer

Dear Yoga Community,


This June, I am excited to share that I will be embarking on an enriching journey to deepen my practice and enhance my skills as a yoga therapist through a new hybrid teacher training program titled „Uniting Yoga and Ayurveda.“ This program uniquely blends the ancient wisdom of yoga with the holistic science of Ayurveda, and I am eager to bring back fresh insights and practices to enhance our individual therapy sessions.


The training combines online sessions with immersive experiences at the renowned Kripalu campus in Stockbridge, MA, USA. This hybrid format is perfect for integrating deep learning with my daily commitments, allowing me to absorb and practice teachings in a truly transformative way.


Over the course of this training, I will:

– Deepen the Integration of Yoga and Ayurveda: Gain a better understanding of how these sister sciences complement each other, enhancing both personal practice and therapeutic approaches.

– Refine My Therapeutic Techniques: Learn to design personalized therapy sessions that align with Ayurvedic principles, focusing on the cultivation of prana, agni, and ojas.

– Participate in Daily Practices: Engage in daily sadhanas, silent self-study, and hands-on practicums under the guidance of experienced instructors.

– Explore Key Concepts: Study the interplay between panchamayakosha and the eight limbs of yoga through the lens of Ayurveda.

– Balance the Doshas: Master specific postures, breathing techniques, and meditation practices aimed at balancing the doshas.

– Understand Prana Movements: Experience and learn about the different movements of prana, enriching both personal and professional yoga therapy practices.


By participating in this program, I aim to enhance the quality of our individual sessions and the health benefits they provide. Understanding the principles of Ayurveda and integrating them into our yoga therapy will allow us to offer a more holistic approach to health and wellness, tailored to the individual needs of each client.




Upon completing this training, I look forward to sharing these new skills and insights with all of you. I am particularly excited about enhancing our sessions to focus not only on physical alignment and strength but also on promoting balance and wellness according to Ayurvedic principles.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for our shared journey in yoga. I am grateful for the opportunity to grow and bring back valuable knowledge that will directly benefit the health and wellbeing of our community.

Stay tuned for updates and enhanced therapeutic offerings inspired by my learnings this summer!

Warm regards,

Dr. Michael Laier
