Ayurveda,“ The Science of Life”, is a 5,000+ year old holistic system of natural medicine which promotes happiness, health and growth. It is considered one of the most remarkable holistic approach to healthcare and is being practiced successfully both in the United States and abroad.
Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that come together to bring natural balance to mind, body, and spirit. Yoga is the science of self- realization, while Ayurveda is the science of self-healing.
Food as Medicine: develop a strong foundation of the basic science & philosophy as well as how to maintain the appropriate diet based on seasons and doshic imbalances.
Learn how to feed yourself and others to help reduce imbalance and support long term health. Learn how food and herbs curtail acute conditions and help relieve and repair from chronic conditions.
