Level 2 - Ayurvedic Health Counselor
The Divine Feminine has called.
She wants you, your friends, family and communities to return to the simplest, but most powerful, ways of caring for themselves.
In Level 1 you learned about the HER rhythms, the cycles of nature, how to use food, and the elements to become the version of you that shines the brightest. Together we did deep work, unearthing what is hidden beneath the layers formed by our daily interactions and behaviors. You’re starting to hear the whispers underneath all the noise.
You’ve also learned how to take this wisdom into your community. To educate in the ways of diet and lifestyle that have the potential to drastically change the trajectory of a person’s life.
In Level 2 we continue our study of ancient methods for understanding pathology, how disease develops, deeper protocols for health and self-care, and the physical diagnostic tools, theory and philosophy for health coaching and case management.
We'll also dive deeper into Body Yantra — Katie's signature practice of Ayurvedic physiology and energetic anatomy.
Shakti School will certify graduates in Divine Feminine Ayurveda that complete all educational requirements of our Levels 1 & 2 programs (600-hours total) as Shakti School Ayurvedic Health Counselors, offering you a listing on our directory of certified practitioners.
This ancient science is vast, and we go further still.
Level 2 is an opportunity to learn about the pathology. How dis-ease moves through the layers of the body – subtle to gross. We’ll further explore the ways in which we can read the messages being shared to deeply support each unique individual in finding balance.
You’ll learn additional tools for growth and health to guide yourself and others into more spaciousness for becoming. Together we’ll hone your intuition and provide structure for the potential of this knowledge to flourish through you.
This 300-hour program is perfect for the seeker looking to work 1-on-1 more deeply, and become a conduit for more radical change to take place.
