Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science in recorded history. Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India over 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.” In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means, “The Science of Life.” The principles of many of the natural healing systems that are now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including homeopathy, polarity therapy, and energy therapy.
The emphasis in Ayurveda is on prevention of disease through balance of the body, mind, and emotions. Balance is created through the knowledge of one’s individual physical-mental-emotional type, or dosha. Implementation of specific lifestyle changes are in accordance to one’s dosha.
The three fundamental concepts in Ayurveda are:
- Food is medicine.
- Disease can be prevented and eradicated by changing one’s daily habits.
- Lifestyle recommendations are based on an individual’s physical-mental-emotional blueprint, or dosha.
In this informative and interactive class, you will learn about the different characteristics of the Ayurvedic doshas and the ways in which bring each one back into balance. Bring your individual questions regarding the recommendations you have been given and we will help you gain a deeper appreciation for your prescribed program.
