Wellbeing for Dogs + Their Humans
The optimum state of wellbeing, for dogs or humans, occurs when all aspects of body, mind and spirit are considered and guided back into equilibrium. When the whole being experiences harmony and balance, Sama is established. This course provides the ideal pathway to creating a Sama Dog: a whole-being balanced dog.
Within this comprehensive 6-session educational program taught over the course of 7 weeks, human companions will gain a complete understanding of the Sama Dog 6 Pillars of Balance, which are the core teachings of our organization and our founder.
Sadly, in this day and age, 1 in 2 dogs succumb to cancer. Lifestyle, food and imbalances all strongly contribute to this risk factor. Throughout this course, you’ll take a deep dive into these various aspects of wellbeing and learn how to strongly influence your dog’s life for the better – as well as your own!
The teachings in this course are rooted in the 5,000-year-old holistic healing system known as Ayurveda. The sister-science to yoga and meditation, Ayurveda is an intuitive, entirely natural and whole-being approach to attaining exceptional overall wellbeing – both human and canine.
