Ayurveda Workshop

Southington YMCA
1/8/23 - 1/8/23
VIEW

Join us as we explore what Ayurveda is and how we can apply these principles for our health & wellness. Retreat will include-

  • Brief Gentle Yoga for all ability levels
  • Introduction to Ayurveda (Sister science of yoga)
  • Lifestyle suggestions and practical application of Ayurveda.
  • Closing meditation

Ayurveda (“Ayur” means “Life” and “Veda” means “Truth or Knowledge”) is the sister science to yoga and the oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease. Ayurveda believes that we are the by- products of how we live and the body type that we were born with. It emphasizes re-establishing balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise and body cleansing, and re-establishing the health of the mind, body, and spirit. We will explore what Ayurveda is and practical suggestions to apply these beautiful and ancient principles into daily life. You will learn more about yourself and your relationship to the world around you.
