Understanding Ayurveda

Practical Application and Integration

When: Saturday, 2:30 PM (3 hrs (180 min))
  Room: COM: Main Hall 1


Ayurveda is a comprehensive healing science that originated over 5000 years ago and is still relevant and essential today. Being the sister science to Yoga it is an integral component of taking your health, happiness and yoga practice to the next level.

You will be introduced to Ayurvedic principles to help you understand your constitution (dosha) and current state. We will explore the history, philosophy and practical aspects of Ayurveda, analyzing how Ayurveda can help you individualize health care practices such as yoga, diet and your daily routine. Ayurveda restores balance of the 5 elements, allowing you to live in your optimal state of health.

This workshop is a combination of theory, and experience. You will go away with a deeper understanding of how the 5 Elements effect your health, how to create a unique daily routine, and what is preventing you from feeling energized and balanced. You will also experience a seasonal Ayurvedic yoga class with asana, pranayama, and meditation.

Participants Need

Pen and paper, blanket for savasana, anything else you need to be comfortable and warm.
