Foundations of Āyurveda Part I, Lesson 6 – Pitta: The Transformational Force; Sites & Subtypes

Welcome! We’re glad you are here.

In this 4.8-hour lesson, we explore pitta doṣa, in the same order that we studied vāta doṣa in Lesson 5.

Regarding this particular course, you should know it is one excerpted section (Lesson 6) of our Foundations of Āyurveda Part I course. We are offering each section of that course as a stand-alone section–like this one–so that people can explore just one topic of interest but, if it seems a little out of context standing alone, it is because it is indeed out of context. But we feel the information presented will be valuable nonetheless.

If you would like more information on this course than what you’ll find on this page, weather it is approved for NAMA credits, etc., kindly peruse the home page–including the FAQs– for  Foundations of Āyurveda Part I.

For a little taste of what to expect before you sign up, here is a little introduction to Dr. Welch & Dr. Svoboda, recorded at the taping of this course.

IS THIS THE RIGHT COURSE FOR ME?

If you are more interested in improving your own personal health and daily practices than in studying Āyurveda more extensively, Dr. Welch’s Healthier Hormones course might be a better starting point – whether you are a man or a woman.

If, however, you have taken the Healthier Hormones course, or wish to focus on or go further into the Āyurvedic perspective and teachings on life and health, then Foundations of Āyurveda Part I might be a good option for you. That course is a prerequisite for Foundations of Āyurveda Part II, also taught by Dr. Welch and Dr. Svoboda.

This particular course you are considering is one section of Foundations of Āyurveda Part I and could be good for you if you already have studied Āyurveda and just want to brush up on this one topic.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
