Ayurveda is the ancient system of healing which originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur, meaning ‘life’, and Veda meaning ‘science or knowledge’). Ayurveda offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy, whilst realizing their full human potential.
In this 2-part workshop, you will:
- study the 3 basic Ayurveda constitutional types and how to recognize your own;
- learn about the effects of foods, environment and experiences on mind and body depending on the constitutional type;
- learn to recognise the symptoms that are created when each constitutional type becomes imbalanced;
- consider appropriate food and lifestyle changes for each constitutional type. What is appropriate for each one is different.
The knowledge of Ayurveda is profound but simple, empowering you to make sound decisions for your own health and wellbeing.
