Ayurveda, an ancient system of healing which originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, is rooted in the principle that spirit, mind and body are inextricably linked. According to Ayurveda, each of us has a unique psycho/physiological body type, our constitution, which determines our individual traits and tendencies.
Many factors, internal and external – our thoughts and emotions, our lifestyles and our diets, our relationships, the weather and the seasons etc. – create balance or imbalance in our constitutions leading to symptoms and disease. The knowledge of Ayurveda is profound but simple. It puts a system on knowledge you already have. It empowers you to make sound decisions for your health and wellbeing.
In this workshop we will:
- study the 3 basic Ayurvedic constitutions and help you to recognize your own;
- explain the effects of foods, environment and experiences on mind and body depending on the constitution;
- help you to recognise the symptoms that are created when each constitution becomes imbalanced; and
- offer appropriate food and lifestyle changes for each constitution. What is appropriate for each of us is different.
