Intro to Ayurveda: Andover MA

Introduction to Ayurveda

Ayurveda, India’s ancient healing system uses diet, lifestyle rhythms, and natural herbs and oils to promote a state of mind/body well-being.  The system follows nature’s rhythms- seasonal changes, sunrise to sunset, phases of life, etc. to maintain optimal health.  Through eating and living in accordance with these natural rhythms, human beings find happiness.  This session introduces key concepts of the Ayurvedic view of the body, the Pancha Mahabhutas (the five elements) and the three Doshas, functional biological compounds, how they affect us, and how to recognize them in your body.
