Ayurveda- the 5,000 year old ancient vedic system of healing- translates to “the science of life.” To practice Ayurveda, to live Ayurveda, means living in harmony with the rhythms of nature. Many healing modalities known in the West such as Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy, are rooted in Ayurvedic traditions which promote balance and harmony within the body, mind and senses. Ayurveda aims to facilitate healing through empowering individuals with knowledge about ways to achieve optimal health through diet and lifestyle.
The workshop will begin with a brief overview of Ayurvedic philosophy followed by instruction on how to discover you elemental body type and how to eat for optimal health and balance. There will be information on the main Ayurvedic healing herbs and the session will include a calming and grounding pranayam and meditation with singing bowls. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a pen and journal for notes.
