Ayurveda – the sister science of yoga, is the holistic medical system of ancient India and offers much more than simple remedies of ailments, it’s a science of putting one’s life into balance with greater nature. 

In this workshop we will establish a solid understanding of core Ayurveda teachings, as well as individual practical applications that will enhance one’s wellbeing and vitality.

The first part of this workshop goes over the original philosophy and the classical Ayurvedic Sanskrit texts, introducing selected slokas (verses) from the Asthanga Hridayam to build the framework needed in order to see all of life through the lens of authentic Ayurvedic principles. 

During the second part we discover our Ayurvedic constitution, learn about digestion and the best food choices for our unique disposition. Incorporating other practical components such as, daily and seasonal health routines, lifestyle practices, suitable exercise including yoga and pranayama. 

No previous experience of Ayurveda or yoga required, all levels welcome.
