A Two-Part Ayurveda workshop
Ignite Power Yoga Studio in York ignitepyoy.com
Sunday afternoons * 1 to 5
November 13 and 20, 2016
Gain a true and deep understanding of your doshas mix. You may be delightfully surprised at what you learn about yourself when you study dosha qualities in a group setting. We will use a more comprehensive set of tests, beyond what you can find online. This workshop is perfect for the yoga student who wants to expand the practice or who has learned a smattering of Ayurveda knowledge and wants to move along.
Discussion of all the cleansing rituals and a hands-on chance to work with therapeutic and blended oils. Your registration fee includes a free sample of an oil that compliments your dosha mix. We will apply oils, as much as you wish, and engage in broad discussion of the variety of oils available, where to get them, how to use them in a range of situations.
Sign up for both weekends, well before November 13, to get advance materials.
This workshop is practical in nature. We look at these elements of your lifestyle:
√ Your true qualities in contrast to situations dictated by the stage of your life now.
√ Communication: Words and Strategies to get along with people unlike our selves.
Where Yoga teaches us the moral and physical practices for ease of body and mind, Ayurveda looks at health-care. It looks at individual ways we imbalance unknowingly.
An Ayurveda counselor has gone through some level of this intensive “medical school” of eastern medicine.
Drawn from understanding of nature’s rhythm and laws, Ayurveda is built around the five elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth and helps you place yourself in harmony with their roles in the natural world.
There, our emotional, physical and psychological selves can stay balanced with the laws of nature. Learn, through Ayurveda’s science for practical living, how to recognize your special tendencies through cravings, personality preferences, and relationships that we don’t always understand at a deep and objective level.
√ Food. Eating food is a practice in Ayurveda. Food is medicine. Our choices and how we prepare them go a long way to influence the movements of our minds and the energy and strength of our bodies.
We look at origins of cravings and we look at ways to evaluate broad fads and media hype that seek to eliminate or emphasize specific foods in our diets.
√ Seasonal and Daily Routines of Cleansing and Caring for the body are at the core of this science of health and wellbeing. Choosing the proper base or blended therapeutic oil considers your true nature as well as adjustments of the seasons.
