Introduction to Ayurveda

April 7, 2-4pm
with Lauren Mitchell
cost: $25 by April 1, $30 thereafter

Ayurveda evolved in India about 5000 years ago and is considered to be one of the world’s oldest, continually practiced forms of healthcare. In this introductory workshop we will learn the foundational principles of “Yoga’s Sister Science” Ayurveda, and how it strives to create harmony between the body, mind, and spirit. You will begin to discover what your unique body constitution is through tridosha, Vata, Pitta and Kapha and how they relate to your own way of being in the world. Learning the foundations of this ancient practice will compliment and expand your yogic practices as well as implement routines into your life that will optimize health, including diet and lifestyle choices.

For the second portion of the workshop, we will incorporate new Ayurvedic learnings into a yoga practice that will also balance our doshas.
