“Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. It teaches that because the universe is comprised of the five elements---ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth---and so are humans, we are all governed by the same laws of nature. When we flow with the daily and seasonal rhythms that nature provides, then we can maintain balance.” ~Kripalu
The goal of Ayurveda is to help us understand our own qualities in relation to the qualities of the greater world, enabling us to attain optimal health in a natural way. We’ll ask ourselves some questions to learn our own Ayurvedic constitution. With that knowledge, we’ll examine how our diet, routines, and asana practice can support us---creating harmony and balance in our system, or throw us off-kilter creating dis-ease (literally a lack of ease in the body.)
No asana practice and everyone is welcome.
