Ayurveda, the “science of life”, supports us in embodying the yoga practice as a lifestyle. Weaving together the practices of yoga and the philosophy of Ayurveda, you will learn self-care practices that support a harmonious body, mind, and spirit. Gain a deeper understanding about how the basic energies of overstimulation, depletion, and balance guide the development of either chronic dis-ease or optimal well-being. Learn about the doshas and unique constitutional elements that impact how we can best find balance.
We will consider the best yogic practices during the various seasons (ritucharya), times of day (dinacharya), and phases of life. Learn to bring balance to your thoughts, emotions, physical body, and actions in the world. We will explore Ayurvedic perspectives on nutrition and nourishment, as well as anatomy and physiology. Learn about the proper foods, yoga asana sequences, and techniques to live in harmony with the environment.
