Ayurveda is an ancient system of health and healing that developed in India thousands of years ago. Translated as “the knowledge of life,” Ayurveda provides a beautiful explanation of the variety of human constitutions. Each of us has a unique mind-body constitution that consists of a particular combination of three energies, or doshas, called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These three doshas are composed of various combinations of the five elements. Your primary dosha points to your natural tendencies, strengths and weaknesses, as well as the ways in which you’re most likely to fall out of balance. Come learn the tell-tale signs of each constitutional type and some common imbalances, and leave with some powerful tools to restore balance using your food choices and lifestyle practices.

As a comprehensive holistic perspective on the human organism, Ayurveda provides guidance on restoring balance that is both subtle and profoundly powerful. Based in nature, its tools are foods, lifestyle changes and other activities designed to restore balance to the body and mind. The beauty of Ayurveda lies in its appreciation for the order in the natural world and how to live in harmony with that order. Come learn how to find balance through our exploration of the five great elements, the therapeutic relevance of the “twenty qualities” and how to use them, the bio-energetic forces of the three doshas, the transformative power of digestive fire, and principles of balance and imbalance (how to create one and avoid the other!).
