Ayurveda (Ayur = life Veda = science) has, since 1982, been officially recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the original traditional holistic health system.
Yoga and Ayurveda are said to be sister sciences, both dating 5000 years.
We often get to know Ayurveda through its massages and diet regimens ; those both, are methods used to restore health. There are many other hugely beneficial cleansing techniques ; (Panchakarma, Yoga) to restore balance to the body, mind and emotions).
To fully benefit from what the science of Ayurveda has to offer to our health, it is important to understand what our constitution (Prakriti) and biological humours (also known as Doshas) are.
According to Ayurveda, we are all born with a Prakriti that makes us all unique. Composed of three Doshas ; Vata, Pitta, Kapha– they all have their own qualities.
Depending on life circumstances, the Doshas might be impacted and inherently influence our overall well-being. This is when there is an imbalance, and a ‘dis-ease’ of the body and or mind appears.
Understanding what the Doshas are, how they work and how they can influence our well-being becomes crucial if we wish to self heal.
When we know what our dominant Doshas are, we are then equipped to make changes and maintain a physico-emotional integrity.
Anyone with a Yoga practice should tap into this vast Ayurvedic knowledge. Yoga paves the way towards self-realisation and Ayurveda towards self-healing.
A theory and practical workshop with a featuring rich content to give you the tools to adjust your practice and lifestyle for maximum benefits. There will be time for an Asana (postures) Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation practice adapted to this theme.
