with Carollanne Crichton

Location: Love Tribe Center

Ayurveda is the ancient and traditional healing art system of India focused on creating an optimal environment within the body for healing to take place.  The goal of Ayurveda is to support the body’s internal healing capability.
Knowledge of ways to reestablish harmony through learning to follow a healthy lifestyle appropriate to one’s constitution is offered in this class.
Topics include:

THE 5 ELEMENTS & THE PATHWAYS OF ENERGY IN NATURE & THE BODY
The five elements of nature represent the most important foundational concept in Ayurveda.

WHAT’s YOUR DOSHA, YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL TENDENCIES & STRESS TYPE?                          In this class, we will focus on your question: “What is my dosha, or, constitution?”
We may all be human but we have slightly different physiologies and emotional tendencies.

THE 4 PILLARS OF HEALTH: DIET, EXERCISE, RESTORATIVES, SPIRITThese are the 4 pillars upon which the table of one’s life is balanced and strong.
In this class, we will look at “dinacharya”, or, how to optimise the hours in each day for well being, as well as “ritucharya”, or, how to flow with the changing rhythms of nature.

Cost:  Early Bird: $80 by 12/29, $95 after 12/29
