Ayurveda is the ancient Indian science of natural healing. It includes diet, herbs, exercise, massage, and other lifestyle-based interventions for your specific needs based on your Doshas (Bodily Humours). Yoga is a method of self-development and self-realization. Its methods include physical postures, breathing exercises, chanting, visualization, concentration, and meditation.
In this practical hands-on workshop, we will explore the connection between Ayurveda and Yoga. In the first half of the workshop, I will give an overview of Ayurveda’s foundational principles and tie it in with Yoga. In the second half, we will do a Dosha Balancing Yoga Practice, which will help you feel refreshed and energized. Additionally, it will give you practical insights on how to incorporate Ayurveda into your everyday Yoga practice.
