INTRO TO AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is the oldest holistic healing modality known to man. Practiced for over 5,000 years, this science of life includes effective diet and lifestyle guides, individualized meditation, breathing and yoga techniques, Marma Chikitsa, mantra healing, herbology, gem therapy, aromatherapy, colour therapy and massage.

Ayurveda promotes healthy living and a sattvic lifestyle, one of balance and harmony. It strives to to maintain the perfect balance of a healthy person through prevention and cures the disease process in an unhealthy person through proper diet, lifestyle, panchakarma, rasayana, herbs and therapies.

Main concepts covered:

Sankhya Philosophy (little)
The 5 Elements: the TRIDOSHA (Vata, Pitta, Kapha)
Gunas and qualities: Sattva, Tamas, Rajas
Seasons and qualities: how do they influence the tridosha? How does this affect the individual?
How to keep balanced through the changes of the seasons in Alberta’s climate

AYURVEDIC LIGHT ON ASANA & PRANAYAMA

In this dynamic workshop we will learn how to achieve the immense benefits of customizing our asana and pranayama practice to accommodate our personal constitution and needs. As we delve into the basic principles of Ayurveda, one will learn how to leverage the qualities of the three governing energies of the universe (Vata, Pitta, Kapha). We will explore the different postures, pranayama and sequences used for energetically aligning each dosha.

This workshop will provide the yogi with a more expansive understanding of how integrating Ayurveda into their yoga practice can benefit one’s health. Learn how to apply this practical knowledge to your personal yoga practice and confidently use this wisdom for self healing and relief of common afflictions such as anxiety, insomnia, anger, fatigue, etc.
