This Ayurveda workshop offers you the opportunity to study and understand the unknown reality of the body and mind—the internal aspects of the body and mind that many of us are unaware of. These internal aspects have the same properties as the elements of the natural world, and when we understand them, we also understand our individual constitutions, when they are in and out of balance, and what we can do to return to a balanced state of health.
During this workshop, we will discuss how the five elements (earth, water, fire, space and air) and their constitutions exist in your body and how they are linked to our five senses (touch, sight, hearing, smell, and test). Understanding this relationship helps us realize why some of us have cravings for certain foods, which elements in the body support mild addictions, why we get along well with some people and not others, why we have lots energy and can be very creative late at night, etc.
The theory and dynamics of Tridosha Siddhanta is also part of this unknown reality that we’ll explore together. It has a central place in Ayurvedic principles of life and explains the location of and the balance between the three fundamental bodily currents—VATA, PITTA and KAPHA—that are present in every human being. Each dosha also has characteristics of the elements and manifests in the body and mind accordingly.
According to Ayurveda, the balance between the doshas are what keep a person’s health in the best possible state through good sleep, a well-functioning digestive system, healthy joints, emotional balance, and appropriate mental stimulation that creates a positive outlook in all realms of life. We’ll discuss many of these interesting facts about ourselves and the reasons behind them, according to Ayruveda.
By the end of the workshop you will have your own Ayurvedic “toolbox” so that you can implement Ayurvedic principles in your life.
