About The Event
This workshop will include the following:
• Ayurvedic theory based on the 5 elements
• Gunas, the 20 qualities of our material world
• Doshas: Understanding your unique constitution of Vata, Pitta or Kapha & Agni
• Our digestive intelligence
• Ama: Accumulated toxins
• The importance of your dinacharya (daily routine)
Ayurveda means the “science of life”. This workshop will give you a general overview of Ayurvedic principles and how to apply them to the whole of your life, as well as your Yoga practice. We will review the theory of the elements, as well as the gunas of these elements and apply them to your environment, diet, lifestyle and Yoga asanas. This will then lead us into an understanding our own unique constitution (or dosha). The doshas will be described as well as ways that will create balance or imbalance. Within our understanding of Ayurveda it is important to have some knowledge about agni (our digestive intelligence) and ama (accumulated toxins). We will learn the basics of how our own agni and ama really determines our state of health and well-being within our physical make-up based on doshic balance.
