Invite health and well being into your life! Immerse yourself in the practices of Ayurveda, and learn simple and practical ways to be your most vibrant and radiant self.

This training is wonderful for teachers to invite deeper healing into their classes and lives as well as practitioners who want to learn ways to bring more balance and peacefulness into their being.

Ayurveda with Leigh Evans has given me a deeper understanding of this subject and I am inspired to continue to study further. The connection of asana with Ayurveda was brought to light. Just as our yoga practice brings awareness to how we move, Ayurveda can help us bring awareness to our health off the mat. Leigh also shared her knowledge on how we can adapt these practices to specific self-care needs of a yoga teacher. I highly recommend studying this topic with her. – Karen – SSY 300 HR YTT, 2018
This weekend of Ayurveda has been an eye opening! I learned a lot about Doshas through you because you have a way of teaching that make us understand. Your gentleness, your lovely voice, your compassion in teaching makes a huge difference for us to absorb, because you explain things from different angles for us to see. You use examples to make us see deeper into the doshas.
One more important thing about you is that you include everyone in the class, and for you every student is worthy of being taught. You have ears for each one of us.
