AYURVEDA for Amazing Health
Dates: May 3 & 4
Hours: 1-4pm each day


"What is Ayurveda?" The simple answer is that it is the traditional science of Ayurveda designed to bring the body back into balance so it can heal itself, which in itself is astounding, but underneath all of that, Ayurveda is much much more. Ayurveda is a Vedic science, and like yoga, has only one purpose: to expose the illusion and neediness of the mind and become free.

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease.

The class will leave you with a basic understanding of these Ayurvedic Principals :

* The 5 Elements (Air, Ether, Water, Fire, Earth) How to identify them in the body.
* The 3 Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha)
* Healthy Eating Habits and the Tastes
* Dinacharya (Daily Routine)
* AyurYoga (how to use asanas as medicine, and which asanas are for what season of the year)

Fees : 1200 Pesos ( 65 usd)
