As a new mom of a 3 year old I still wasn’t sleeping well, I had tried a bunch of diets but none of them really helped me keep the extra weight off, my energy was super low in the afternoons and evenings and my body just did not feel like mine.

I dove back into Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old wellness system of India, and everything changed! I pared down what I had learned for busy women in their childbearing years, and called it MAyurveda: Ayurveda for Mamas.

Ayurveda is like having a manual called How to Have a Body.

– Cate Stillman

The oldest and most comprehensive health and wellness system still in use today, Ayurveda is 5000 years old and means “the study of life.”  Many of its simple practices we’ve never heard of, and become as essential as brushing your teeth and taking a shower.

This teleseminar is crafted for yoga teachers who want to know how to take care of ourselves and our students off the mat.

As an instructor, we are seen as part of people’s health care team. It’s helpful to know answers to questions such as:

  • I’m not sleeping well. What can I do?
  • I am having digestive issues. Are there foods I shouldn’t be eating?
  • I want to have a baby. Is there anything I can do to get ready?
  • I had a baby and never fully recovered. How can I heal?
  • I have a lot of stress from my job and I don’t have a lot of spare time. What are the most effective ways to calm the nervous system?

In MAyurveda, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use food and spice as medicine for you and your loved ones
  • Know your unique constitution and move toward balance and vitality, based on what’s happening in your life
  • Incorporate simple but deep self-care routines called “Anchor Practices” that shift your energy back into your center, help your skin be soft and glowy and your mind be clear
  • Create a daily rhythm in your household that supports everyone’s natural physiological clocks, so bedtime and mornings aren’t a struggle.
  • Apply Ayurvedic principles to physiological and psychological conditions throughout the life cycle using women’s bodies as our model, including children, menstruation, pregnancy, and postpartum

If you’re thinking “I’m stressed out all the time and I really can’t squeeze in anything else,” I just need to ask – when will things slow down enough for you to start taking care of yourself?

When are you going to take the time to learn new routines that you will follow as you age, to support your vital wellness?

Why not make the choice to learn to hear the messages your body is are giving you now, and how to heal your own issues, before they grow into bigger problems?

If you’re a yoga teacher…

  • Do you know how to guide people to vibrant wellness off the mat as well as on?
  • Do you have your own go-to practices that – no matter what’s going on – help balance your own constitution again?
  • Do you dream of being able to make an impact on people’s lives through a deep, powerful connection to nature – daily rhythms, seasonal practices, aligning with the moon and more?

I can’t wait to share what I call “Anchor Practices” – core habits of the yogi that keep us from getting burnt out, and help us maintain our connection to our highest Self whether we get to our mat that day or not!


  • As far as the training went, 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! These are all things that I wanted to do but always put off for another time. Your class really pushed me to implement them for good!

  • 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.

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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. I'm inspired to continue my study of Ayurveda and I especially appreciate all of the resources you've given us. What a delight to be a part of it, and to find this nourishing and supportive community of girls! Life feels simplified, purposeful and healthy. I tried your Green Pancake recipe the other morning and Oliver (14 mnths) loved them. As did I!!

  • not only I feel more energized, but also, I feel that my workouts have better results. I'll explain; in addition to teaching yoga, I also teach fitness (indoor cycle, bootcamp, bodyblast) anyhow, whenever I taught more than 1 class a day in the past, I felt that the lactic acid produced during workouts was getting stagnated in the tissue. Which in turn left my muscles in a painful state. My western Dr. Suggested I exercised less. My chinese Dr. thought my spleen was not producing and moving new blood fast enough to flush the lactic acid out of the tissue. Well... with the cayenne pepper I have been teaching about 4 classes a day painfree!!!! I am just soooo amazed of 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 :)))

  • 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.

  • If I had to pick my favourite element of the course, 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 trialled 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!

Can’t make it to all the calls?

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 4 of the 6 calls live.

For everyone, I do recommend you be live on the calls if you can, to get the most out of this training.

In my experience, when we connect energetically to others with similar intentions, we can manifest more easily. Plus, you’ll be able to get your questions answered and share your explorations.

Again, life happens and it’s better to listen to the recordings than not to take this journey at all!
