Saturday 23 June | 2 – 4.30PM | R350.
India’s medical and wellness practice – the ancient Knowledge of Life. Ayurveda works on the 3 primary components of mind, body (digestive system being central), heart/spirit to enhance and maintain a healthy and long life. This is an ancient 5000 year system of tried, tested and applied Indian wisdom. It is a simple yet profound way of finding and maintaining balance of the energies and constitution that are our individual make-up and to be our best, healthy and expansive selves.
Traditionally Yoga and Ayurveda function as a unified system but Ayurvedic practice has been neglected outside of India till recently. As science and western medicine learn and confirm more of the profound truths, wisdom and applications of Ayurveda, it is being brought into focus with great enthusiasm and amazing benefits.
The afternoon session will include:
Introductory talk about Ayurveda.
Personally exploring your own Doshas (constitution and energy influences) and get to know what might be out of balance and what helps to adjust and manage it to heal, invigorate and live healthily.
Guidance on daily routines (Dinecharya) for healing and maintaining balance.
Lots of useful tips that you can use every day. It is not about being a vegan or vegetarian, about denial and fierce control but rather about empowering ourselves with knowledge. That which best serve us and to mitigate any potential ill effects of our modern lifestyles. We are all unique individuals and we can make appropriate choices guided by some underpinning principles of Ayurveda.
Embodied practise to ground and integrate our knowledge.
Guided visualization & meditation to balance the elements of your constitution.
Learn about the amazing rejuvenating effects of Panchakarma (Ayurvedic Detox).
The session will end with discussions, questions and answers in an informal forum with teas and snacks.
