Introduction to Ayurveda: The Science of Life


 
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India, and has been enjoying a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world. Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine both have their roots in Ayurveda. Early Greek medicine also embraced many concepts originally described in the classical Ayurvedic medical texts dating back thousands of years. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential.
 
This course is for those interested in healthy lifestyle change and self-inquiry. Participants will learn the significance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—the three energies in the body that promote balance in body and mind; Dinacharya (or daily routines); the basics of Agni and the importance of digestion on health and longevity; and practical techniques to support healthy dietary habits and lifestyle choices. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the science of life!
