Intro to Ayurveda & how to create Health in your life  2 hour 

 

Ayurvedic medicine evolved in India about 5000 years ago, and is considered to be the world's oldest healthcare system. It is named for the Sanskrit word Ayurveda, meaning the "science of life."
 Ayurvedic medicine is entirely holistic. Its adherents strive to create harmony between the body, mind, and spirit, maintaining that this balance prevents illness, treats acute conditions, and contributes to a long and healthy life.  Ayurveda views each person as unique with individual needs. We may all be human but we have slightly different physiologies and emotional tendencies. Ayurveda teaches that for this reason, each person's path toward optimal health is also unique.

Ayurveda Spring Vinyasa Yoga

In Ayurveda, the spring season is a time when the Kapha dosha (composed of Earth and Water elements) moves into the Pitta dosha phase (composed of the Fire and Water elements). During this transition time in March through May, nature is melting and releasing energy into plants, trees, and humans. It’s an important time to cleanse and detoxify, make new intentions, and plant seeds to ensure this vital energy is focused toward your future crops, creative projects and dreams. In this workshop we will talk about the Doshas and you can find out more about your Ayurvedic constitution we will follow with a spring seasonal vinyasa class including traditional cleansing postures to reduce inflammation around the digestive organs and abdomen, breathing techniques to cleanse the lungs, twisting for detoxification, and intensive work in the inner and outer legs where earth and water elements may have accumulated over the winter.
