Yoga + Ayurveda for Evolutionary Living Part 2
Victory Over the Monkey Mind
There is no doubt, the mind is fickle and difficult to manage especially when the pace of life is only getting faster every day. Ancient Vedic wisdom teaches us that the body and its functions are a reflection of the mind, thoughts and our emotional nature. The essence of Vedic healing proclaims that wellness begins with proper management of the senses, discipline over the conditions of the mind and continuity of effort. Attaining true health and wellness is rooted in sound mind-body-synergy and by understanding the root causes of disease and mental disharmony to attain victory over our bad habits. Let us explore what both yoga and ayurveda provide us with to make this monkey madness a powerful transformative tool for promoting health happiness and feeling love for all.

YOGA & AYURVEDA FOR EVOLUTIONARY LIVING (Part One)
Focusing on Raising Awareness
Our western world and most particularly urban societies are overcome by “excess” in many aspects of our lifestyle and manner of thinking. The patterns seem to be redundant and as a result the health issues are increasing and damaging the quality of our lives. The ancient yet practical wisdom of Ayurveda teaches us how to manage our physical energies accordingly, as per the level and maturity of our body type and awareness, known as mind-body-synergy. Learn the indicators of excess in health and wellness and the key principles to managing your weight through diet, herbs, yoga and lifestyle practices. Ayurvedic dietary wisdom principles provide a framework in which to adapt our diet to the cycles of life, for healing and for spiritual evolution. This workshop will explore the concepts of health and wellness, not measured merely from a physical or aesthetic perspective but from one of awareness, consciousness and ultimately in the relationship one shares with nature.
- Addressing the concept of balanced weight or “loss” according to Ayurvedic tri-dosha.
- Ayurvedic remedies applied according to the dosha type.
- Applying yogic techniques to enhance the balance of the digestive system.
