Ayurvedic Spring Renewal

Ayurveda
Ayurveda, translated from Sanskrit as the Science of Life, originated centuries ago in India. It combines the wisdom of existence with achieving balanced health and is considered the oldest health care system still in practice today. Ayurveda goes beyond medicine − it is a way of life that is designed to bring the mind, body, soul and senses into balanced harmony.


Ayurvedic Spring Renewal
In this 8-week experiential course of study, K.J. and Regina will lead students into understanding their individual Dosha – personal constitution – through focused nutritional guidelines, herbs, yoga, meditation, self observation and reflection through visualizations and journaling. Each weekly meeting will focus on releasing and restoring the body through dietary focuses and exploring different chakras and practices designed to support the juncture from winter to spring. It is a beginning to being able to find health and self-balance in one’s life; to finding alignment to one’s essence and strengths.
