AYURVEDIC LIFESTYLE CLASS SERIES: Perfect health
Ayurvedic Lifestyle: Perfect Health 5 Class Summer Series
Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old healing system from India. Ayurveda means wisdom of life from the Sanskrit words ‘ayus’ meaning life, and ‘veda’ meaning wisdom. The basic premise of Ayurveda is that health is a state of vibrant balance in which the layers of one’s life are integrated and in tune with nature. Ayurvedic lifestyle leads us to ‘svastha’ translated as wellbeing or perfect health. The practices of Ayurveda teach us how to understand when imbalances occur and provide tangible practices to bring us back balanced health. Within Ayurveda the practices include yoga, meditation, nutrition, herbs, aromas, bodywork, sound, detoxifying practices, daily routines, along with emotional and energetic balancing.
Sue Bonanno, certified yoga & meditation teacher will bring you through a 5 class series based upon her course of study in Ayurvedic lifestyle at the Deepak Chopra Center in California as well as her own personal 18 year yoga practice, extensive personal practice of meditation, and her experience integrating Ayurvedic medicine into her own life. This 5 class process will sequentially lead you through the theory and practical application of mind-body healing and Ayurveda. In the class series you will learn your own mind-body constitution(dosha), practice mindfulness meditation, identify daily Ayurvedic routines that serve your individual nature, understand the basics of Ayurvedic herbs and nutrition, experience gentle energy-opening yoga postures, and energy balancing with sound and aroma – all with the intention of knowing yourself and taking charge of your wellbeing. A combination of lecture, discussion, meditation and experiential components comprise each class. Dates TBD.
- MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS OF LIFE: body, mind, soul, the 5 elements and 3 body-mind principles (doshas)
- FOOD AS MEDICINE: nourishment for body, mind, soul
- PERPETUAL RENEWAL: detoxification, purification, rejuvenation
- FREEDOM: self-knowledge, the body’s 7 biological responses, conscious living
- GATEWAYS TO THE INNER PHARMACY: metabolizing sensory experience
If you have to miss a session, you can make it up next time we run this series. (Note: NO class August 11)
