Event description

Description

Ayurveda is a system of medicine which has its roots in India, and is now practiced around the world. Essentially translated as “wisdom of life”, Ayurveda provides a foundation for a healthy way of living. Wellbeing, according to Ayurveda, is a delicate balance between the body, mind, spirit and the environment. This ancient medical arts system provides an integrative approach to preventing health concerns, treating illness, and improving quality of life.

Ayurvedic Principles:
Ayurveda is based on the deep understanding that the forces and principles found in nature, also exist in humans. This system helps us understand the impact of the seasons, environmental factors on the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Ayurveda highlights three fundamental energies that govern the inner and the outer environment: movement, transformation and structure. These three energies (doshas) are composed of the 5 elements and known as:

- Vata
- Pitta
- Kapha

Ayurveda provides dynamic and indepth solutions relevant to modern living, regardless of age, culture or background.

Participants will learn:
- The basics of Ayurvedic principles and understand the 3 doshas
- Learn simple self-care tips to incorporate Ayurveda into daily life to reduce stress and promote health
- Explore principles of Ayurvedic nutrition for your body type
- Understand how to eat for the summer season
- Learn how to use essential oils for balancing through Ayurvedic principles
