Full Description

This ancient system is the medical system of Yoga and the key to conscious living. It has to do with balance. Ayurveda, Yoga and Traditional Chinese medicine understand that we are governed by forces of nature. Chinese medicine calls these Qi, Yin and Yang and Yoga and Ayurveda call them Rajas, Ssattva and Tamas, or Agni, Soma and Prana. These forces weave together and through, the material world, Prakriti, which is comprised of 5 elements. The entire Universe and our own bodies are comprised of these elements, Earth, Water, Fire Air and Ether. Our physical constitutions are combinations of these elements called Doshas.

Self Knowledge is the key to finding happiness and health and in Ayurevda this means understanding your nature and how you best interrelate with the natural world, from the types of food you eat, where you live, how you work and think and love.

Together we will explore through practice and lecture the science of longevity and the application of opposites to find balance:
