Experience the deep interconnection between mind and body
Recovery is a gradual process and nutrition, wellbeing, and our overall lifestyle are one of the many issues that require attention. During this 25hr training you will learn how to use the “science of life,” Ayurveda, to support, revitalize, and harmonize your body and mind through asana, healthy eating, meditation, pranayama and other daily and seasonal routines.
You can incorporate these routines into your daily life in order to live a yogic lifestyle that is steeped in this ancient, but relevant wisdom. Beyond learning Ayurvedic concepts, this will be an opportunity to live and experience Ayurveda throughout our time together. We will learn how to cook and eat nurturing and detoxifying foods that will help us enter into each season in health and wellness. We will do asana, pranayama and meditation practices according to the doshas and learn how the different times of the day have energetic properties that can be used to our benefit.
An important part of the journey together will be to practice Vipassana meditation, also known as mindfulness or insight meditation. This is an opportunity to experience moments of living fully in the present moment with your senses and without judgment or attachment to outcomes. Through self-observation, you will experience the deep interconnection between mind and body. As you become more aware of your thoughts and how they impact your emotions and body sensations, you will have the chance to choose a life of mental purity and freedom from suffering that stems from delusional thought patterns.
Health relates to more than the physical body. It is mental, emotional, and spiritual, and Ayurveda can be used to help you create and maintain healthy relationships with yourself and others. It can help you to better understand yourself, and the people in your life. Throughout this process of self-exploration, you will learn to work with your natural strengths in order to find harmony in all areas of your life. Ultimately, you will learn to embrace each person's characteristics as a part of their wholeness while honoring who you are all while letting go of the illusion that you and everyone else is inadequate in some way.
In this 25hr course you will be empowered with the knowledge needed to live an Ayurvedic lifestyle and be on your way to living in the ebb and flow of nature.
