In stressful times, what can we do to support and strengthen our immune systems?
In this four-part workshop, you’ll learn some of the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda, India’s ancient science of health and wellness. With its focus on the unique constitution of each individual, Ayurveda is true personalized medicine, a consciousness-based approach to health based on living in harmony with nature.
Ayurveda emphasizes diet and lifestyle as the primary tools for preventing and healing illness and promotes natural ways to achieve balance in body, mind, and spirit. Discover your unique constitution and learn simple yet powerful and practical tools to create, restore, stabilize, and nurture your health.
Session 1: An introduction to the elements, the doṣas and your unique constitution
Session 2: Kindling digestive fire: strengthening gut health to support immunity
Session 3: An Ayurvedic approach to diet and nutrition
Session 4: Healthy lifestyle: Daily rituals to reduce stress and support good health
Each session includes a presentation/lecture, discussion and Q&A, and a yoga/somatic movement practice. Plan to have a yoga mat and chair ready for the practice.
This program is for anyone who wants to learn more about how to use diet and lifestyle for improving immunity, digestion and overall health. Yoga teachers and Yoga Therapists can use this program for continuing education credits.
