Introduction to Ayurveda

  • The Assemblage 114 East 25th Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

In Sanskit, the word Ayur means 'Life' and Veda means 'Knowledge.' Ayurveda, the world's oldest and most comprehensive health system, is about using the Knowledge of your Life—of every part of yourself—to guide you as you manage inputs like diet, exercise, environments and relationships. A part of this philosophy is based on preventing physical or physiological imbalances, such as maintaining a healthy body and mind. Ayurveda is the mother of all medicine, one which teaches individuals how to align themselves with Mother Nature.

In this class taught by Ayurvedic Nutritionist Noel Graupner, who also designed The Assemblage Food & Beverage program, you will learn the basic principles of Ayurveda, beginning with the basic definition of 'health' as balance. We will discuss the theory of the five elements and three doshas, and take a quiz to help you identify your constitution, your number one tool to find and maintain your own unique balance! Handouts will be given and note-taking is encouraged.

This event is free to members and non-members with RSVP.
