Join Joy for this information session where we'll dive into this deep and ancient pool of wisdom. Ayurveda is the sister science to Yoga and is translated as the 'Science of Life'. It has been used over the last 5000 years in India to create balance and health in body, mind and spirit. We will learn our Ayurvedic Prakriti or Dosha (vata, pitta or kapha?) and learn Ayurvedic practices and foods for balancing your dosha.
According to Ayurveda, the goal is not just a high functioning physical body, but a mind and spirit to match. As we accumulate stress in our modern lives, we get tired and our digestion slows down, we battle mood, our energy wanes, aging and a multitude of physical ailments keep us from realizing our spiritual nature. The body becomes dense, heavy and non-responsive tethering us to a dull state of being and thinking. We will learn ways to lighten the load, feel energized and whole.
Much of the information widely accepted in Ayurveda for thousands of years has only very recently been proven by modern science! The ancient seers and rishis were so attuned to their physical bodies it is truly astounding to contemplate how they could have been so acutely aware of the most subtle aspects of being. Their knowledge will amaze you!
The goal of Ayurveda is to remove the density of the physical body and restore optimal physical health so that we can gain mental and spiritual clarity. Joy and equanimity is our birthright! Feeling good is something each of us has access to each and every day.
Learn some very simple and accessible ways you can begin to incorporate this ancient wisdom into your everyday life and reorient yourself toward feeling light, free and connected!
