How can Ayurveda help?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian Holistic Medical system of well-being connected to the physical, physiological and psychological body. Ayurveda in Sanskrit means 'the science of life' ( 'ayur'=life and 'veda'=knowledge).
Ayurveda uses five approaches to assess and prevent disease:
According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance amongst the body's three fundamental energies called Doshas: Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth). Ayurvedic principles hold that each person has a particular pattern of energy – an individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics known as a constitution (dosha).
In this workshop we will look at how to make adjustments to your lifestyle to relieve stress and anxiety, by discovering your personal constitution (Doshas).
You will learn about natural food sources, foot and hand self-massage techniques and simple yoga postures, which will support you in leading a more balanced life, mentally and emotionally.
You will be given course handouts, so you can put everything you’ve learned on the workshop into practice at home on a regular basis.
There will be a complementary tea for soothing and calming and a sweet treat for happy digestion!
The help we need is always there, we just need to become more self-aware in the way we manage and work with symptoms effectively.
