Simply put, Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine native to the Indian subcontinent still practiced all around the world. Your “dosha” is your body’s constitution, one of three types. Learning about your particular dosha means learning about what is good for you as well as what to avoid.
While the names may sound exotic, they really represent common sense, down-to-earth diet and lifestyle choices.
Come explore the five elements (PanchaBhutas: Fire, Air, Space, Earth & Water) and how they fully play a role in your makeup as a human being. What does a balanced constitutional state look like (Prakruti)? What does your current, or imbalanced constitutional state look like (Vikruti)? Learn how the five elements, the six tastes (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent) and the 20 attributes (Gunas) dance together to enhance your well-being.
Discover your Dosha: Click here to take an online quiz to determine your body constitution, and bring this info to the workshop! Note: First you will see a Pakriti Quiz, then a Vikriti Quiz following that. Take both!
Expect to leave with a basic daily routine (Dinacharya) to practice right away. If time allows, integrative yoga therapy for each dosha will be introduced and practiced.
