A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory
As we move into the warmer months of the year it is the perfect time to embrace Diet and Lifestyle recommendations and explore The Great Elements.
Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with a day of yoga, breathing, meditation cooking and concepts.
Exploration will be around the Intelligence, internally and externally, of the three more active elements:
If you have attended any of our Ayurveda events, or if you are a first-timer, you are invited to join us and develop your understanding of the biological intelligence within us known as ‘Dosha-s’.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.
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 vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.
Health is fostered through the informed interaction of the individual with their diet, mental process, lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life. Ayurveda recognises the elements in the environment as the same elements activating our bodies and minds.
With a variety of experiential practices, you will have first-hand knowledge of why – by doing.
During this nourishing day we will:
- Explore yoga, breathing and meditation in three separate forms, to understand how to balance our air element, fire element and water element
- Cook three different recipes for lunch as part of the experiential understanding of the elements and the dosha-s
- Become familiar with the signatures of the elements so as to maintain wellness
- Gain a deeper feel for the concept of the Dosha-s
- Explore and share by way of Question and Answer time
