Join Ellen for a fun, life-giving introduction to Ayurveda. This healing science developed alongside the practices of yoga is designed to empower you to know yourself deeply and to live a life in rhythm with nature for optimal vitality, well-being and awakening.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that translates to “the wisdom of life.” It is the 5,000 year old Natural Medicine of India.
Some benefits are:
- Empowers you to know your body/mind type, live in accordance with that balance and take responsibility for your own health
- Considers you holistically (ie, your body/mind and spirit) and offers natural ways of treating diseases and promoting health
- Cost effective and it works!
How can Ayurveda help me?
Yoga and Ayurveda are the perfect grounding medicine to balance the fast, sharp and always-moving culture in which we currently abide. Over 90% of all diseases can be avoided or greatly lessened by living a life of balance and health. Learn to live in alignment with your personal wellness blueprint (prakriti) and nature so that you can thrive and fulfill your life’s purpose (dharma). Discover how simple daily habits can transform your energy, vitality and awakeness as we dive into the philosophy and world-view of Ayurveda and yoga.
Pre-registration is highly recommend; class size is limited to 16.
