Learn the seven levels of the pulse – from the organs and tissues to the chakras and inherent qualities of the mind. You will not only learn proper technique but understand how to interpret this wisdom at the tips of your fingers.

Welcome to the fascinating world of the pulse! This ancient Ayurvedic technique has been used by Vaidya’s for thousands of years to gain meaningful insights into their patient’s physiological and mental states that extend far beyond just heart rate and rhythm.

Through comprehensive lessons from Vasant Lad and other faculty from The Ayurvedic Institute you will come to understand the deep spiritual and philosophical roots of the pulse in Ayurvedic practice while also honing your own practical pulse reading skills and knowledge.

Dive deep into the secrets of the pulse, where you will discover how to read your own pulse and learn to assess the many aspects of your subtle and physical being, such as the organ systems, chakras, and states of mind. In time this skill can then be applied while serving within your own community or practice.

Join Sneha Raichada, MPT, CAP, E-RYT-200, and Mitesh Raichada, CAP, as they teach the small nuances around feeling, reading and gathering information through the subtle language of the pulse!

Introduction to Pulse and Building Sensitivity

Begin your pulse-taking journey by learning multiple strategies to increase sensitivity in your fingertips and enhance your subtle awareness. You will also gain an understanding of the basic characteristics of pulse, from rate and rhythm to force and form. This foundation will serve you for the duration of the immersion and your lifelong journey with pulse.

Technique - Prakruti, Vikruti

Dive into techniques for pulse-taking, from hand and finger placement to the optimal times of day. Learn the doshic association with each finger and each part of the finger, which prepares you for the concepts of Prakruti, doshic constitution, and Vikruti, doshic imbalance or the current state of the doshas.

Feeling the Organs

This is the week where you will learn the location of the 12 organs at the first and seventh levels of the pulse. You will begin to hone your skill of questioning to provide confirmation or clarification of what you’re feeling, which will serve you over the course of your pulse-taking journey.

The Dhatus

Learn the seven dhatus or tissues of the body, their function, and their location at the 5th level of the pulse. This pulse greatly deepens one’s Ayurvedic understanding of the body, the process of dis-ease, and how it may move from one tissue into the next.

The Subdoshas

We explore the 15 subdoshas, 5 each for Vata, Pitta and Kapha. This pulse will additionally build upon one’s understanding of the dhatus and organs in relation to the doshas and help piece together the story of one’s health through the pulse.

Ojas, Tejas & Prana

Learn about the fine essences of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha - in Ojas, Tejas and Prana. This level of the pulse illustrates how our physical, mental and emotional states affect not only our immunity but also communication, intelligence, and awareness at the cellular level.

Manas Prakruti, Vikruti & the Chakras

We will cover the most advanced levels of the pulse: our inherent mental constitution, or Manas Prakruti, and our current states of mind, Manas Vikruti, which are expressed in relation to eight deities and their personalities. Learn the physical, mental and emotional significance of each chakra and the implications if a chakra is “blocked."

Learn a Master's Method

For over 50 years, Vasant Lad has relied on the pulse as an indispensable tool in his own consultations - in 2005 Vaidya Lad published Secrets of the Pulse: The Ancient Art of Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis through which many Ayurvedic practitioners learned or refined their method of pulse reading.

We highly recommend this book as a learning aid for those taking this immersion - this book can be purchased from our own Ayurvedic Press HERE

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an AyurPrana Immersion?

Our immersions deliver a virtual experience aimed at fostering transformation. We offer live content from our esteemed and captivating speakers, practitioners, and teachers straight to you! We want as many people as possible to have access to this life-changing content. We make the content easily available for you, whether you are in the comfort of your home, at your favorite coffee shop, or on the beach.

Can I ask the instructor questions during the live sessions?

Yes! The live component of any class is interactive. We have a state-of-the-art setup for the speaker to have a life-size view of the audience, so it is as if you are sitting together. There will be designated opportunities to ask questions you have related to the content. We also have a dedicated Facebook group where you can ask additional questions and get to know your immersion friends!

I’m totally new to Ayurveda. Is this going to make sense to me?

We do recommend a basic knowledge of Ayurveda for this online course. An understanding of terms like Doshas, Vikruti, Prakruti, Dhatus, Ojas, Tejas, Prana, will ensure you are able to follow along without interupting your own learning.

We will provide you with an introductory video on the concept of the five elements and the three doshas, which are foundational to understanding the first and seventh levels of the pulse that we will explore in Session 1. We are there to support you through the live sessions as well as in the Facebook group for any questions you have.

You will also have access to all of this material for 6 months after the immersion, so please revisit as much as you need to. Each visit will provide another layer of depth to your growing understanding!

 

I’ve tried learning pulse before but I wasn’t able to feel anything or understand what I was feeling. How can I know if this course will be different?

This is a common obstacle for many of us as we dive into pulse. You are not alone! We are simply not accustomed to this level of sensitivity in our fingers, but we can cultivate this awareness with dedicated, practice. We will have a full live session on technique and different methods to enhance your sensitivity - and you can ask questions in our online community to troubleshoot your interpretation and technique!

Learning the art of the pulse is a life-long journey of discovery! The more you work with these techniques the more you begin to sense. Practicing and studying in a group, with the guidance of our instructors and the insights of Vasant Lad, can leapfrog you forward. A simple suggestion from Vaidya Lad can open up our experience and offer spaces to explore beyond that which we could have discovered on our own.

Trust us, it will come!

Is it possible to learn pulse virtually without someone to guide me in person?

There are absolutely benefits to studying pulse in person, where someone can physically guide your hand and sequentially confirm if what you’re feeling is accurate. Vasant Lad has effectively taught pulse over Zoom before, however, and with great success. The virtual setting also encourages participants to practice, practice, practice, and above all trust what they are feeling and their intuition, which is one of the greatest and most important skills to have in this art and science.

I’ve already studied pulse before with Vasant Lad in person or have taken Vasant Lad’s previous Secrets of the Pulse webinar series. How is this series different?

That’s amazing that you’ve already delved into the ocean of pulse!

The content will be similar to the previous webinar series and Vasant Lad’s teachings. This immersion format, however, focuses on coaching and interactive support and check-ins through the weekly Live sessions with Mitesh and Sneha and the complimentary videos and support provided in the Facebook community. Pulse is also a never-ending journey, so each time you learn and review the material, you gain a deeper understanding that will further evolve your art and skill.

How will I view the session?

For live sessions, we will utilize the Zoom platform. You will receive clear instructions on how to join. All you need is good internet access; a laptop, tablet, or phone with video and audio capabilities; and a fresh and open mind!  

Recorded classes or the live replays will be accessed through the AyurLearn Portal. Instructions to access your AyurLearn Portal will be emailed to you shortly after purchase.

What if I can’t join the during the live broadcast? Can I watch the sessions later?

Absolutely. You will have full access to the recorded sessions for at least 6 months after the live broadcast.

What is your refund and cancellation policy?

Immersions may be canceled up to 72 hours prior to the start date of the session. Please contact care@liveayurprana.com to submit a request for cancellation.

What if I am having technical problems during the live immersion?

You can reach us immediately by utilizing the chat feature in Zoom or emailing care@liveayurprana.com . We will be continuously checking these so that we can respond to you promptly.

Got questions? We have answers!

Contact us at care@liveayurprana.com or utilize the chat feature on www.liveayurprana.com and we’d be happy to help!
