Planting the Seeds of Good Health through Ayurvedic Wisdom: Ayurveda is an ancient science of self-healing, a holistic science that teaches how to stay healthy and how to live one’s daily life in harmony with nature. Each person represents a specific combination of the five elements: ether or space, air, fire, water and earth. Each one is part of a much bigger picture. With a basic foundation in Ayurvedic principles one can learn how to keep oneself in balance, for overall well-being and happiness.

  • It is recommended to register for these four classes as a series, as subsequent classes build on the previous ones. However, they can also be taken separately. Information from the previous classes will be elaborated on.
  • Class 4: Practical Tips for Daily Living

    Ayurveda offers age-old practices to keep us in balance with mother nature. The doshas Vāta, Pitta and Kapha relate to specific locations in the physical and mental bodies. They respond to different forms of exercise, yoga and movement. Each dosha even has its own breathing patterns and habits. Good habits provide us with a sound basis for a happy life.

    In this class you will learn daily practices that support a balanced lifestyle.
