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.

Ayurveda and the Mind: Philosophy and Practice for Mental Clarity

Join this philosophy-in-action workshop and learn practices for sustaining mental equilibrium and fostering clarity that you can take home with you!

The philosophy that underlies both Yoga and Ayurveda (Samkhya) is incredibly useful in helping students of both traditions understand more deeply the reasoning behind many of the practices and lifestyle observances. Our discussion will include the importance of the karmendriyas (organs of action) and jnanendriyas (organs of knowledge) for conscious and beneficial living, as well as Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas, the mental energies which drive us. We will use this ancient framework to observe the activity of our minds and bodies. As we understand the interplay of these universal energies, we can implement key lifestyle actions to support yogic living and reap its benefits in our daily lives.

 

Cost: $35
