In Sanskrit, the word Ayur means 'Life' and Veda means 'Knowledge'. Ayurveda is about using the Knowledge of your Life, of every part of yourself, to guide you as you manage inputs like diet, exercise, environment and relationships in a way that prevents physical or physiological imbalance, i.e. how to maintain a healthy body + mind.
In this class, you will learn the basic principles of Ayurveda, beginning with the basic definition of 'health' as balance. We will discuss the theory of the 5 elements and 3 doshas, and take a quiz to help you identify your constitution, your number one tool to learn how to find and maintain balance! Handouts will be giving and note taking is encouraged.
