Immersion Overview

Learn on Demand with weekly Live Q&A Sessions with OB/GYN and Ayurvedic Practitioner, Dr. Vrinda Devani

Ayurveda celebrates the intimate connections between life and the natural world from which it originates. The female body is intimately tied to the natural world - even the heavenly body of the moon as it moves through the night sky has an effect on our physiological self.

In coming to know our cycles, to understand their purpose and how they are most likely to affect us, the more we can do to become aware of, prepare for, and live into the highest expression of ourselves throughout the cycles of life cycles. For the female body these cycles are often initiated, supported, and concluded by the chemical messengers in our bodies, the hormones.

Millions of women over the ages have lent their insight to the study of Ayurveda - developing whole schools that focus on the holistic health of the female-sexed body. In recent decades, western medical science has made critical strides - taking what was once considered mystical occurrences and understanding the physiological processes involved - especially in the complex world of hormones.

In combining the insights of western medicine, with the tried and tested lifestyle science of Ayurveda we arrive at a point where we are empowered to care for our own bodies, while understanding in detail the intimate dance occurring within us.

In this course you will open doors of understanding and self-knowledge that will allow us to build more harmonious relationships with our own bodies - so that we may come to better nurture and heal ourselves and each other.

What We Will Cover in This Immersion

Lesson 1: The Divine Feminine

We are all a mixture of masculine and feminine, and in the Vedic tradition, the feminine is the creative force of the world. It is the energy that holds action, compassion, intuition, and bravery all in one. In this immersion we will honor the sacred feminine and harness this energy through a focus on connection, creation, and wisdom - embodying the freedom to create fearlessly - and explore its connection to the seven chakras. We will see how this foundational energy and chakra system supports balanced hormone systems in the body.

Lesson 2: The Cycles of Life

We will explore what it means to live consciously as a female-sexed body in rhythm with our cycles. This immersion is about regaining and honoring the wisdom of our cycles, thereby supporting the healthy cycling of hormones within the body.  

Lesson 3: Harmonious Hormones

In this lesson we will dive into the basics of hormones. We will explore what hormones are from both a Western and Ayurvedic perspective and explore the first few key players, estrogen and progesterone, through the lens of Ayurveda and modern research.

Lesson 4: Reading The Signs

The menstrual cycle is deeply regarded as a window into the female-sexed body and its overall health! We will explore how to read the menstrual cycle - as well as menopausal symptoms - for imbalances of the five elements and three doshas and thereby getting an insight into our hormonal health. We will explore the same for the menopausal years!

Lesson 5: We Are What We Eat

In Ayurveda we hold nutrition and cooking as one of the most important factors in maintaining our health and wellness. We will look at the concept of nourishment in Ayurveda and the connection to our hormones.

Lesson 6: Just Breathe

Prana, our life force, is directly tied to the breath. We will look at the science of the breath and how it relates to our hormones, testosterone, and cortisol production - an important part of all female-sexed bodies.

Lesson 7: Healthy Rest

Here we will explore the sympathetic nervous system which aids in our rest and digestion - the important role relaxation plays in reducing cortisol and how it counteracts almost every hormone.

Lesson 8: Why We Cleanse

In Ayurveda we know that certain toxins (AMA) and estrogen dominance can lead to imbalance within our system. Through cleansing techniques we want to soothe and ground - rebalancing our system.

Meet the Teacher

AyurPrana Medical Director

Vrinda Devani, MD, CAP & RYT

Vrinda’s dedication to empowering women towards vibrant health and living shines through in her practice as a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist, and as an Ayurvedic Practitioner. After studying under Vasant Lad, Vrinda followed this passion to Nepal, where she studied Ayurvedic women’s health with Dr. Sarita Shrestha. Vrinda believes in unfolding the human body’s potential through a blend of complementary and allopathic medicine, and so her approach to healing is always extraordinarily well-rounded and compassionate. If she’s not speaking or writing for various prestigious audiences on the intricacies of women’s health, you might find her in the middle of a flow, as Vrinda is also a lover (and certified instructor) of Ayuryoga.

Is this a course that will tackle infertility, menstrual disorders or specific menopausal disorders?

This course covers how to support balanced hormones through tools and ways of living that are foundational to all of the above. We believe and have found these concepts and practices are what comes first before any specific remedies. That said, the core course will not address specific disorders and remedies. However, if there is time in the Q&A you are absolutely welcome to ask any question related to this topic as home remedies often are a natural extension of the conversation.

Our immersions are intentionally accessible for anyone - even those relatively new to Ayurveda.
