WELCOME TO MAYURVEDA: AYURVEDA TRAINING

for busy women who want radiant wellness

MAyurveda: Ayurveda Training for Busy Women

An online Ayurveda training for women in their childbearing years

Hi I’m Jessica. I might look fine in my pictures as a new mom – and I was super happy – but I was exhausted, depleted, and oddly my hair straightened! Jessica Jennings, founder, MAyurveda: Ayurveda Training for moms and moms-to-be

I decided to focus on myself so I took an online Ayurveda training, a deep dive into the 5,000 year old wellness system of India.

Everything changed.

With the new daily rhythms and routines I’d learned, I felt like someone had given me my body, my energy, and my afternoons back. I was eating food that was nourishing without living in the kitchen, so my digestion got strong again. My hair grew in thicker, I dropped the extra weight, and I stopped getting sick all the time.

Eventually, I pared down what I had learned and called it the MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda Training for Women in their Childbearing Years.

I pared down what I had learned and called it the MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda Training for Women in their Childbearing Years.

Ayurveda is the oldest and most comprehensive health and wellness system still in use today, and means “the science of life.”

For me, it was like receiving a manual called The Care and Maintenance of Your Body.

Many of the simple routines and rhythms you might never have heard of, but once you try them they’ll become as normal as brushing your teeth – and you’ll want to do them even on your busiest days.

This online Ayurveda training is especially crafted for yoga teachers, and it fulfills partial requirements for the Ma Yoga/Yoga Alliance Prenatal Certification Program.

But anyone who feels too overwhelmed to take care of yourself will find a whole new level of vibrant wellness.

You’ll get answers to questions such as:

  • I’m not sleeping well. What can I do to sleep better?
  • I am having digestive issues. Are there foods I shouldn’t be eating?
  • I tend to get a colds and allergies. How can I use food to stay healthy, without living in the kitchen?
  • I feel exhausted all the time. How can I find more energy?
  • I’m stressed and anxious. What small lifestyle shifts can I make that pack a big bang for their buck?

Urged me into beautiful new territory

I have thoroughly enjoyed taking Mayurveda with you. Each class was so wonderful, spoke right to my level, and urged me into beautiful new territory. It was challenging in the best possible way.

Amazing energy shifts

I've been following the Ayurveda daily time rhythm and its amazing how your energy shifts with it! Thank you for allowing your lectures to be recorded online. Even though I can't be there during the live chats, it is nice to still feel apart of this class and to be able to learn the information and instill it in my life.

Favourite element of the program

If I had to pick my favourite element of the whole Ma Yoga Certification program, I think this would be it! I knew NOTHING about Ayurveda before this series of online conference video calls. It just made sense to me. I loved that the structure (weekly video calls) allowed the knowledge to really sink in and for more research afterwards to be done. I loved the sense of community created.

I loved having homework tasks for the week, being given the time to allow new things to be tried and for new routines to be created. This knowledge has improved my own personal health and given me the resources to advise others. MAyurveda also has helped me to improve my family life - who knew that would happen!

Empowered with basic knowledge

Great course and very well paced! I felt empowered with basic knowledge to incorporate anchor practices and be more proactive on self care and self healing. And also to share my new experiences with family and friends.

The course being broken down into digestible chunks along with the printable course books really helped me. Discussing during the sessions and the fact that the anchor practices are so tangible and accessible also helped.

Routines and anchor practices have been super helpful for me the past few weeks….Anchor practices that I’ve been setting up are helping me move forward into the unknown.

Change your life for the better

Jess’ MAyurveda course will change your life for the better! Once she helps you understand your dosha and she has helped you learn the Ayurvedic anchor practices you can slowly incorporate these healthful practices into your life!

As a working mom of a baby and 3 year old, I felt overwhelmed by all the anchor practices at first, but if you have a busy life, Jess can help you individually tackle each practice by adding them weekly or even more leisurely.

Before you know it you’ve incorporated all the anchor practices into your life and it’s such a small investment to do so! I especially liked all the Ayurvedic cooking and spice adding tips! My kids and I are eating so healthy now. Thank you Jess!

Feeling grounded again

So the last two weeks, my win has been revolved around this overall feeling of …. feeling really good, feeling like I have found my new normal, feeling grounded again despite the chaos around me.

I know its because of the anchor practices…thank you.

Felt really good

I am feeling better and was actually incorporating some of the suggestions for new mamas for my flu recovery and it felt really good. I especially loved the date smoothie.

Thanks Jess for all your great information but also your personal commitment. Its clear how much you care about your ladies.

Listen while taking care of my son

It was great to be able to listen and participate while taking care of my son and if I missed something I could re-listen to that part of the call on the recording.

By adding a few of [the Anchor Practices] into my daily routine, I now have the extra energy to take care of my son without feeling drained.

My new routines feel really good

Thank you so much for sharing all your wisdom. I truly learned so much about Ayurveda. My new practices and routines feel really good, and I'm sharing these practices and having discussions with mamas and mamas-to-be and getting positive responses.

With this course, I have so many more tools to help my family and the mamas I works with stay healthy. Also, seeing health and dis-ease through the lens of Ayurveda has opened my mind to so much possibility.

If you’re a yoga teacher…

You’re busy. You care about others a lot. You often don’t have time to take care of YOU, and even if you do, you’re not sure what to do.

  • Do you know quick and easy ways to support your own radiant wellness?
  • Do you have your own go-to practices that – no matter what’s going on – help you find your steady center again?
  • Do you dream of being able to make bigger impact on people’s lives beyond what we can do on the mat?

In addition to giving you more tools to help students and clients, the MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda Training will help you incorporate quick and easy routines to support you no matter how packed your day gets.

I can’t wait to share what I call “Anchor Practices”: core habits of the yogi that help us maintain our connection to our highest Self throughout your day, your week, and your life.

Live or on video

It’s ok if you have to miss some calls – all calls are recorded and can be downloaded after if you can’t be on live.

If you are taking MAyurveda to fulfill requirements for the Ma Yoga/Yoga Alliance Prenatal Certification, you must attend at least four of the six calls live, OR post the weekly homeplay in our private group for four of the six calls minimum so we know you’re getting the material from the vids.

I do recommend you be live on the calls if you can, to get the most out of this transformative experience!

Gets us back in touch with self care

Something else impressed upon me from this past week and it is how much of our daily practice with the MAyurveda gets us back in touch with self care and self love--something as a new mom or working mom or mom of multiples... we often neglect, forget and fail to do. (Yup, I used the f-word!) And what a great way to set the example to those around us (to our children, to other women, etc...) by our actions.

Soooo amazed at the changes

Not only I feel more energized, but also, I feel that my workouts have better results. Well... with the cayenne pepper I have been teaching about 4 classes a day painfree!!!! I am just soooo amazed at the changes from the addition of this spice into my daily food intake. Jessica, I can't thank you enough for this ayurveda course. I am planning to continue learning about ayurveda. I am so excited about it :)))

Confident with all the knowledge

It feels good to take an active focus on my self-care!

I finally tried oil massage before the shower this week and it really does make my skin feel amazing! The anchor practice that has been the most different for me to implement this week has been the neti pot. I have one and had used it only when I was sick, but doing it every day as part of my routine has been nice. I feel like I am breathing more clearly throughout the day.

In my prenatal yoga class tonight I shared with the mamas about anchor practices and establishing a daily rhythm and offered some suggestions that they could try and establish before their babies come. It felt good to speak about this topic feeling confident with all the knowledge I have gained in this class!

A lightbulb suddenly turned on

After listening to the Week 3 Mayurveda playback, it's like a lightbulb suddenly turned on and I have a better understanding of why I crave what I do! Knowing this, I have adapted HOW I eat and I am excited to what differences I feel.

The tools and knowledge Jessica shares are applicable to people at all stages of this life journey and particularly interesting to me in my preconception planning!

Change how I give care as a doula

My perception of online learning has totally changed. I have felt wonderful connection with this process and am enjoying it. I have started cooking more, making lentils, and tonight is the sweet rice I am testing with brown rice.

I am so excited to have this knowledge that I can actually pass on to my clients.  ♥

Living in a new way

I loved it! I loved the community you created. I loved the ease of the call downloading and the materials to follow along with. I liked all the suggestions. I feel like I really learned a lot.

I really loved the daily routine plan and to hear how it works for you and how it was working for the others. It led me to some experimentation, and I felt like I really bonded with my boyfriend as we both tried some things together.

So far, I am living in a new way because of you!

We had to challenge ourselves

It was great to be able to do the MAyurveda calls from my own home and to listen to them again if I needed to.

I really enjoyed that we had to challenge ourselves with the Dina Charya. I have been tongue scraping for almost a week and trying to wind down after 6 pm. Also eating my biggest meal at lunch has kept me feeling pretty light at night!!
