Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years. Spreading to the West as a sister science of Yoga, it offers tremendous insight into how we can live healthier, more balanced lives. Through understanding our connectedness to Nature, Ayurveda sees each person as a unique combination of the (5) elements – ether, air, fire, water, and earth. These elements come together in different ways to form different body types, personality traits, and tendencies for specific diseases.

In this interactive workshop, we will discuss how to understand your constitution, and how this information can help you find your unique state of balanced health. We will discuss how to use food as medicine, as well as how to improve digestion and increase immunity through simple Ayurvedic recipes and remedies.

We will start by:

  • Taking a modern dosha quiz to learn your body/mind constitution
  • Receive specific tips on how to utilize herbs and diet and other lifestyle practices to rejuvenate your health and reconnect with your true nature.
  • How to create a balanced diet and lifestyle to suit your body type (dosha).
  • Simple Daily Rituals for Optimal Digestion
  • How to use Food as Medicine to relieve gas, heartburn, indigestion, and constipation

Takeaways include:

  • Dosha quiz
  • Handouts
  • Samples

No previous experience with Ayurveda is necessary. Just an interestedness and willingness to have fun!
