Ayurveda 101
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of healing. It is based on the science of life. Ayur = life, Veda = science. Ayurveda is based on three fundamental energies: Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth). These energies are thought to govern the characteristics of our mind and body. This workshop is an introduction for those new to Ayurveda where you can find out which energy predominates your mind and body and how to accommodate that energy to live a balance life. You will also learn what type of diet, herbs, music, exercise, sleep routine, and more, best suits your personal body and mind type.
