Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning life knowledge. It is the name of the world's oldest comprehensive health system, one which offers unique insight into creating balance among all realms of wellness - physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual - using tools like diet and plant remedy, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, color, and aromatherapy to create harmony between the mind, body, and natural world. 

Balance in mind and body is divine, natural order according to Ayurveda. Balance is our true nature and can otherwise be defined as health and happiness. This compact, intensive workshop will include discussion of:

    The roots of Vedic philosophy through an explanation of the Sankhya theory
    The three Gunas // Universal Properties

    Prakruti // Individual Constitution
    Vikruti // Constitutional Disorder state of Imbalance
    Manas // The mind
