Ayurveda Workshops

Ayurveda’s healing practices are as relevant today as they were 5,000 years ago. Described as the oldest system of health and healing, ayurveda is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature. All of ayurveda’s healing practices are based on an understanding of how to use the elements to balance the body and mind. Ayurvedic practices include: lifestyle, food, herbs, yoga, meditation, pranayama and massage.

The goal of Ayurveda is to teach people how to attain optimal health through a deeper understanding of themselves and their own particular nature in relationship to the world around them.
