Nuts & SeedsAyurveda is the ancient system of healing which originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It 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 create balance or imbalance in our Constitutions leading to symptoms and disease.

The knowledge of Ayurveda is profound but simple, empowering you to make sound decisions for your own health and wellbeing.

In Part 1, you will:

  • study the 5 element theory of Ayurveda and how these elements combine to create different energies (the 3 doshas) which in turn combine in a unique way in each of us to form our Constitution.
  • Understand the effects of foods, environment, emotions and life experiences on the doshas and hence on our Constitutions
  • be able to recognise the symptoms that are created when each dosha becomes imbalanced.
  • be able to identify appropriate lifestyle changes which help balance each dosha and hence our bodies and minds. What is appropriate for each of us is different depending on our Constitution and what is out of balance.

By the end of the first day each participant will have a good grasp of the nature of their Constitution, how it is imbalanced and some idea of steps they can begin to take for better health.

Registration: 9.15am-10.00am
Note: Attendance at both Part 1&2 is strongly recommended.
