Sale price$150.00

Ayurveda honors the interconnected nature of all our internal systems - offering a deeper appreciation and understanding of our body-mind connection and how our lifestyle, behavior, thoughts, emotions, and diet are all influencing neurochemical changes within us.

In this course, we will explore:

  • The function of the brain from a western perspective and learn the functional integrity of the subdoshas governing the brain from an Ayurvedic perspective.
  • The Ayurvedic anatomy of the central nervous system and the subtle anatomy of the brain relating to the planets and karma.
  • The relationship between our thoughts, feelings and emotions and the secretion of specific neurotransmitters and hormones.
  • The ultimate potential of the brain and higher perception, called 'Soma Vidya', and discover how our limited intelligence is connected to the universal intelligence.
  • The stages and states of consciousness - such as those found in dreams and in anesthetics.
  • The foods and herbs that can help improve brain function
  • Daily habits that can benefit specific neuro chemicals through behavioral and spiritual therapy and observe Vasant Lad unveiling the influence meditation and pranayama has on our brain.
  • How we can improve and maintain brain health through ancient subtle therapies such as sound, touch, color, taste, and fragrance - investigating how certain mantras or herbs are related to the secretion of particular hormones and neurotransmitters.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Anka Hoerster

I feel like not just my work as nurse but also my life in a human body has become so much more fluid, translucent and trusting. There is so much more that I need to learn before I’ll be able to effectively support others with the introduction you gave here, but every time I apply some of it already the results are so confirming and sometimes like magic.


Overall, I cannot thank enough Dr. Lad and entire AyurPrana team for this amazing process and support. In nearly 14yrs, this is the longest spell of feeling better without dreading the next relapse. This has also allowed me to reap the benefits of my sadhana to remain in awareness. I am beating up myself for not doing this sooner! Will continue this journey…..

Pranayama Participant

I loved the ways in which you explained things to us, the joy and the good energy you transmitted. Thank you so so much! And I am grateful to Dr. Lad, such an honor to practice with him and learn from his expertise! This immersion was worth every cent, glad that I overcame the stingyness of doing something just for myself.
