3 Day "Nourish Your Life with Ayurveda" Intensive
USING THE TOOLS OF VIHARA (LIFESTYLE) & AHARA (FOOD) TO CREATE & MAINTAIN WHOLE-BEING WELL-BEING
Ayurveda emerged from the sacred texts of ancient India and is commonly thought of as Yoga's sister science. It is the practice of observing the elements of nature around and within us, and maintaining or restoring health by balancing those elements.
Join Yoga Therapist, Ayurvedic Chef and Health Counselor Molly McManus for a weekend-long immersion. This intensive weekend will introduce you to the following concepts in Ayurveda:
DISCOVER AYURVEDA - AYURVEDA 101
Each of us was born with a unique constitutional make-up that through-out the course of our life can swing in and out of balance. Learning to understand your constitutional tendencies can help you to support yourself to regain, create or maintain long, healthy, well-balanced lives.
Ayurveda & Yoga as sister sciences in a holistic approach to health
+ Purusharta - Considering the desires of the soul in wellbeing
+ Elemental & Essential Nature - the body vs the Self
+ Prakruti & Vikruti - our balanced vs current state
+ Pancha Koshas - the layers of our human experience
+ Gunas - working with qualities to bring balance
+ Ayurvedic clock - understanding the Hours, Seasons, Lifecycle
DINACHARYA & THE SIX PILLARS OF WELLBEING
Dinacharya is the Sanskrit word for "daily-routine". It is a concept in Ayurvedic medicine that looks at the cycles of nature and bases daily activities around these cycles that help establish balance useful for promoting health. Rather than looking to add “one more thing” to your wellness regime, we can turn to the Six Pillars & Dinacharya as a basic foundation to support our health and livelihood. The Six Pillars provide guidelines for wellness, which in turn fosters more physical and mental energy that we can devote to a life well-lived. These 6 pillars include:
+ Nourishing - Food
+ Breathing and Stress Management
+ Self-awareness & Self-reflection
