~ AYURVEDA ~
A sister-science to Yoga, as often referred to, Ayurveda is the fundamental "science of life", the eternal and traditional wellness system, stemming from the ancient Vedic culture in India more than 5,000 years ago. We can call it the “Mother of All Healing" as the principles of many of the natural healing systems now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is a holistic science, it deals with every aspect of life, the balance and relationship of the elements within and in our environment in order to restore the healthiest version of body, mind and self.
It is vast and complex, but also commonsense and logical. Often, as we learn Ayurveda, we simply remember the wisdom that lives in our cells.
~ WORKSHOP OVERVIEW ~
In this workshop we will go through learning sessions, discussion, practical exercises and embodiment practices to stretch and move.
We will cover some of the basic concepts and fundamental principles of Ayurveda, including:
- the five great elements and their influence on our state of balance
- the concepts of prakruti (the state of natural health or constitution) and vikruti (imbalances) that we all experience through the lens of the doshas (Vata - Pitta - Kapha)
- the importance of daily routine and practices that work for each and every one of us as a unique individual, over "one size fits all" solutions
- basics of the three pathways to healing: food, lifestyle, medicine
- common misunderstandings of self-diagnosis and the priciples of Ayurveda
... and more
~ INTENTION ~
The practice of the principles of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create and sustain balance of body, mind and awareness according to one’s own individual make-up or, if in an unhealthy state - how to make lifestyle choices to bring about and maintain such balance.
