Ayurveda life hacks to live, sleep and feel better in 6 weeks
Ancient wisdom of Ayurveda meets the modern science of habit formation.
The Micro Habits of Ayurveda is a live virtual six-week, self-care program that brings Ayurveda alive through dinacharya (daily routines) that will uplevel your health and shift you from Overwhelm to Ease. Intelligently sequenced and easy to implement, micro habits compound to yield macro results.
Ayurveda: India’s ancient, time-tested, holistic health tradition that fosters living in alignment with Nature
Micro Habit: a small action requiring minimal effort to complete
Overwhelm is deeply embedded in our modern culture, but it is not our baseline nature nor is it a common requirement for existence.
We may not be in control of the stimuli of overwhelm, but changing our relationship with overwhelm is absolutely within our domain.
How can you shift your perspective to enjoy an easeful relationship with life?
If you are ready to make that shift and draw from a larger energy of ease, Micro Habits is your direct access ramp to better living through Ayurveda.
Listen to my talk with Elena Brower about the course on the Practice You Podcast
OVERWHELM CAN CONTRIBUTE TO MISALIGNMENTS IN:
- Low Energy
- Sluggish Digestion
- Difficulty waking up in the morning
- Brain Fog
- Making Poor Choices
- Lack of Motivation
- Feeling disconnected from Source
- Living in scarcity consciousness
- Feelings of living below your potential
Living in integrity with Body, Mind and Spirit is the hallmark of good health.
The most potent tool for Ayurveda self-care lies in the Five Kosha model:
Moving from the outermost physical body to more subtle anatomy, you can expect:
- Improved Digestion
- Better Sleep
- Deeper Energy
- Sharper Mind
- Clearer Intuition
- Renewed Sense of Purpose
In addition to self-care protocols, Micro Habits includes weekly, customized Yoga Nidra meditations for your home practice. Yoga Nidra is a meditation that employs targeted intentions to ease you out of pre-programmed habits that do not serve you and into life-enhancing routines that will last a lifetime.
The beauty of the course lies in its simplicity of the habits and Marc's wonderful and personal teaching approach.
I knew Marc from yoga classes and liked him very much. I had already studied ayurveda, but I needed a refresh course to help me get back on track with simple solutions. It was really a quick decision.
I loved the practical advise. The short videos with very actionable suggestions were very useful. I truly enjoyed the weekly session with Marc. His calm, empathetic and warm approach was wonderful. He also has the talent of explaining complex concepts in a very simple way.
The one-on-one session with him was the highlight! I got so many insights and helpful recommendations. I also felt understood and supported. It truly was a game-changer. I have really liked the course and I can say now that I have incorporated a lot of the habits. The course helped me to organize my routines in a more sensible way, especially in the mornings. I have incorporated them in a very natural way. If I miss one day, I can easily get back on track.
I feel better. It's a paradox of feeling simultaneously more relaxed and energetic.
After 30 years of putting everyone else in my family before me, self care is a challenge. This course helps jumpstart the process. I recommend the Micro Habits course to anyone who will listen.
Our one on one talk was transformative! Hearing that I was a pitta on fire and that I could just burn up if I wasn't careful, was a wake up call. For example, this little Pitta has been too busy doing to send you this feedback. FINALLY, I buckled down and did it. You were so spot on when you queried if maybe I was addicted to doing. Yes, of course! And it's a real impediment to just being.
Your dynamism, enthusiasm and humor make the course a uniquely wonderful experience.
What's covered inside the program.
Healthy digestion (Agni) is the most fundamental aspect of overall wellness in Ayurveda. Optimize your Agni through meal planning/sequencing, breathwork, and kriyas. Learn which spices/herbs will increase metabolism and eliminate toxins (Ama).
Self-Massage (Abhyanga) grounds the nervous system while building confidence. Learn how to use your hands to create a stable mind and sound body plus pranayama practices to raise your mental vibration and clear congested brain lymphatics.
Prioritizing balanced sleep is key for graceful longevity and enhanced immunity. We will strategize ways to dial back your bedtime hour and learn practices to wind down with essential oils, restorative poses, and Face Yoga.
We assess and refine our habits. Learn how to incorporate the 6 Tastes into your meals and continue our Yoga Nidra practices to realign with our deepest intention and identity-based habits.
Start your day right and rise before the sun. Learn to pray, give gratitude, hydrate, and do meditative practices that expand your perspective. Train your bowels for early morning elimination.
SENSE ORGAN CARE
Don’t let your sense organs devitalize prematurely. Learn the essentials of nourishing your senses so you can hear, taste, smell, see and feel for a lifetime.
I have great respect for how Marc lives an Ayurveda lifestyle and how he brings the world of Yoga and Ayurveda together so beautifully for his students.

Upon completion of this course you will walk away with a deeper understanding of Ayurveda through daily, comprehensive habits that will sustain you for a lifetime.
What's included in the program
A one-on-one 45-minute private session with Marc during the program.
Weekly live group calls with Marc.
Ongoing access to course content, as well as future editions of the program.
Program specific hatha yoga classes, meditations and yoga nidra classes.
This course is indeed a treasure, the material is perfect, the combination with yoga nidra is genius, the teacher knowledgeable and his wonderful soul shone through in every class and every live call.
The material is perfectly outlined and delivered, the platform is very user friendly too and seamlessly updated, but it is Marc’s generous and authentic sharing of his immense knowledge, expertise, yoga Nidra practice in particular, his personal life experience and his kindness, compassion and humanity with utmost politeness and availability throughout the course but especially during the live calls and personal 1-1, in addition to the positive energy during the recorded excerpts that brings this course to life and makes it shine.
The course has provided me a language and background understanding to many Ayurveda and life concepts I noticed and was aware of, yet I lacked the practical application of. I have a clear path to recover my energy and the certainty that everything we practiced is safe and beneficial for me.
Practicing yoga nidra regularly especially the shorter meditations in the morning have provided me with a clarity and greater self awareness that is not so easily available through simple seated meditation.
I have felt truly privileged to participate in this learning journey and honoured to learn from you, Marc and your own teachers. I know it has changed my life and will continue to do so.
I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to do it - I love the teacher, am fascinated by Ayurveda, so it was a no-brainer!
I would recommend (and have done so many times in the past) ANYTHING that MH teaches because his passion and enthusiasm for this subject really come across and he is just such an authentic teacher. He connects so well with those he teaches - he is warm and kind and such a great avertisement physically for the yogic/ayurvedic lifestyle - he gives me something to aspire to!!

Hear from Marc's students.
I really liked the coaching calls with Marc and how he checks in with each student; not only on the broad perspective of an Ayurvedic lifestyle but how it affects each one of us and our constitutions differently. I've definitely changed my perspective regarding my evolution into the person I want to become.

Initially I thought I was already so ‘self aware’ and found myself rushing through the actions of my day. Now I move more fluidly with a calm awareness. Additionally, I thought I would have no time left in my day to do this course, but the pace was perfect.

I had never done an online course before and wondered if it would be worth it. I feel like a completely new person. Marc’s guidance was amazing. I loved the guest speakers and the e-books accompanying each habit. A life-changing course for people on the go all the time.

Marc’s encouragement on the tele-seminars and the daily support from the community were vital for me to stay on track. I saw the biggest changes in my daily routine around meditation, movement, and body care.

There are countless benefits from this course. Before, I felt very disconnected to my every day life and was suffering from morning stomach issues and intense sugar cravings. These are nearly all gone now. I’ve even found extra time to start the day more mindfully. With accountability to our group and Marc, I always felt connected to our Dinacharya community. It gave me confidence knowing I was supported and not alone.

Prior to the course, I LOVED sleep, but there was no real routine with regard to it. Now I am established in a routine that has enhanced deeper rest in the night. As a result, waking earlier is easeful and more natural. Some of the habits are challenging, but I learned that my edge can be pushed in a smaller, safer way. How can I teach my students they deserve better if I don't believe it for me?
Yoga Teacher, Studio Mgr / Poulsbo, WA
Before the course I felt rushed, dull, always tired, and like I was underneath a veil. I’d wake up late each morning, but it wasn’t a relaxing sleep. I’d often drink wine before bed to unwind. Upon finishing the course and integrating most of the habits with Marc’s help, the nightly wine ritual naturally fell away! I’m waking up earlier, I feel more awake, more aware of people and nature. It seems that my antennas got a new alignment!
Yoga Teacher / Stuttgart Germany
I loved how approachable this course was. It is paced so that there is enough space and time for each habit to gain momentum in a natural way. I am now eating earlier and lighter dinners, using more oil on body, and am more mindful of the quality of my downtime. I recommend Evolutionary Habits to anyone who is willing to change their current habits in order to live a better life. It’s brought much clarity and awarenessinto what I do and why I do it.

I am amazed how unknown Dinacharya is, and how it fits so well in anyone’s life. I used to have occasional insomnia, wake up groggy and spend the rest of the day in a haze. Now I know exactly what to do to remedy this. Knowing I am my own best self-care giver makes all the difference.
