Course founder Katie Rose shares: 'So many people ask me where I teach next, or how we can continue the learning journey together … well here is your chance to study with me in your own time! Bhakti Rose is a carefully curated online learning portal for offerings and collaborations around Ayurveda, Yoga and all things Mindful Living.
With 'Ayurveda Goddess', we have created an abundant virtual source of Ayurvedic wisdom, delivered by empowered women living their best lives and ready to support you in living yours.'
A comprehensive online training for women of all ages
'Ayurveda Goddess' is part sacred immersion into the teachings (practice) and part information gathering and lecture (education). You will be refreshed, re-balanced and ready to share what you have absorbed.
The training has a strong focus on beautiful presentation, so that as you dive into these teachings, you will get the same ‘bhav’ or sacred feeling as if you were attending an in-person workshop. Course founder Katie Rose shares: 'what has surprised me the most about learning and teaching online is that it really can positively impact the way I’m feeling, just as radically as a real life workshop!'
Bringing ancient wisdom to life
The benefit of learning from home is just that: you are at home! So when we talk about changes to your diet, lifestyle, kitchen and personal beauty regimes it’s all right there in front of you.
In the course you will:
- Improve your diet and digestion in a gentle, nourishing and sustainable way
- Balance your hormones and menstrual cycle / fertility / menopause health
- Meet live in circle (we use the virtual platform ZOOM) with other women sharing insights and healing practices together
- Practice meditation, yoga nidra (deep relaxation), pranayama and chanting
- Learn how to best support your unique constitutional type
- Experience essential oils, spices and herbal remedies for your unique conditions and constitution
- Practice ancient Ayurvedic rituals such as techniques for self-care and creating sacred space
Understand how your yoga practice and yoga teaching style impacts the constitutional types, for yoga teachers this could add a new income stream to your offerings
- Work with the gunas to create more wholesome physical and emotional states of being
- Learn about the unique Australian seasons through the lens of Ayurveda, as well as Aboriginal approaches to health and wellness
- Support a healthy and happy home environment or family using Ayurvedic principles and rhythms
Ayurvedic wellness - personal and self-paced
We will explore a different topic module by module throughout the course, which means you will be able to access new video content and audio recordings as well as other supporting materials regularly. We’ll also meet on ZOOM and in our Facebook Group - the times for this will be arranged in advance and with plenty of notice. If you miss a session we will have recordings and you can catch up later. There will also be homework assignments and practical exercises (think cooking up a storm, beautiful self-care rituals and making your own Ayurveda beauty products etc.). The course focuses on the personal healing journey of each participant as a platform from which to then serve others and share this work out in the world.
Is there an accreditation?
This course is accredited by Bhakti Rose if you choose the certified version (please note there is no one governing body for Ayurveda in Australia), as well it will provide wonderful tools to support your life and health and that of your family and friends. If you are a yoga teacher or health care practitioner of some kind it will enhance your skill set in serving your students and clients. You will be issued with a Bhakti Rose Ayurveda Goddess Training Certificate when you have completed the course and we can also offer CPD points for Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia, contact us for more information. If you choose the personal study option there is no certification.
How long does the course take to complete?
Study is self-paced and you can move through the content as quickly or slowly as you like. There are quizzes and homework assignments for the certified version of the training (not for the personal study option) and you will be given feedback as part of your course fee. We recommend a 6 to 9 month learning journey. Once you enrol you'll have lifetime free access to the course material and ongoing access to our monthly ZOOM circle (specific to this training) so your journey with Ayurveda never has to end.

She started her yogic career at age 19 as a volunteer cleaner at the prestigious TriYoga in London. By 24 Katie was managing the Primrose Hill TriYoga flagship location after which she moved to Australia in 2004 and founded her own yoga studio ‘Samadhi Yoga’ in Newtown.

"I have known Katie Rose for several years, both on a personal and professional level, and she's one of the most inspiring people I've ever met. Her 'Ayurveda Sadhana' course for Women, which I attended in 2019, blew my mind. She managed to create an incredibly nourishing, sacred environment and I left with a whole new outlook on my daily habits, and a bag full of tools to apply on a day-to-day basis. If you are looking to live a more wholesome, happy and mindful life, you've found your guide!"
