People may tell you that achieving, let alone maintaining, a healthy life balance is at best an elusive ideal, and at worst a complete myth. Ayurveda, however, has been providing the teachings and techniques to achieve and maintain a balanced life since ancient times. (Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old consciousness-based healing system founded in ancient India. The word Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life, and veda, meaning wisdom. The literal translation is The Wisdom of Life.) Because Ayurveda combines many different practices – including yoga and meditation – its benefits are far reaching. Following an Ayurvedic lifestyle certainly improves happiness and health, and contributes to physical, emotional and relationship balance.
Perfect Health: Ayurvedic LIfestyle is a five-part seminar series that will immerse you in the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda. Here you will learn practical tools and techniques to create physical and emotional balance, including:
Your Mind & Body Type – Learn what mind-body constitution (dosha) you born and how your mind and body is reacting right now. You will discover techniques designed to balance your mind and body based on your dosha.
Yoga & Meditation – Learn the scientific benefits of utilizing these powerful tools and how to develop a nourishing practice.
Nourishing Diet – Discover which foods are best for balancing your dosha and how to prepare them.
Daily Renewal – Learn Ayurvedic techniques that will nourish your body, mind and spirit on a daily basis to keep you in balance.
Nourishing Relationships & Emotional Freedom – Learn tools to practice conscious communication to enhance your relationships and remove emotional blocks.
While everyone benefits from the series, it is especially helpful if you are experiencing any of the following:
- An overall feeling of being out of balance in your life
- Stress and its related health issues
- Weight gain
- Depression and anxiety
- Physical or emotional pain
- Chronic health issues and its treatment (cancer and chemotherapy)
- Relationship difficulties
