“What’s My Dosha?”

Ayurveda’s Map to Great Health

~ An Interactive Workshop with Ivy ~
Global Breath Yoga Studio, Durham, NC
Ayurvedic-Herbs-and-Spices
Why do you feel best in cold climates, while your sister craves the beach? Or why do you love spicy food, while the same dish gives your spouse heartburn?
The ancient Indian science of Ayurveda explains that each of us has a unique mind-body constitution that directs our habits, personality quirks, general health and vulnerabilities. In this interactive workshop, you will…
  • Discover which elemental energy, or dosha, dominates your constitution, Vata, Pitta or Kapha
  • Learn your constitution’s natural tendencies, strengths and weaknesses
  • Receive guidance on which habits and foods are best for you – and which to avoid
  • Learn the illnesses you may be more prone to, so you can prevent them
  • Understand how our culture sets us up for imbalances (and what to do about it)
Come join Ivy for this exploration and uncover your unique road map to robust health.
Sunday, March 31, 2 – 4pm, $35

Ivy will be guest teaching at this full day of yoga practice, connection, learning, healing, rest and nourishment led by yoga teacher extraordinaire Olynda Smith.  In the morning we will work a specific sequence and type of alignment that helps calm the nervous system.  Through activating the parasympathetic nervous system we’ll open up to rest, restoration and receiving nourishment from our self-care practices.

In the afternoon, Ivy will share some of the profound principles of self-care taught in the ancient healing system of India. We’ll explore a handful of potent practices we can take home with us to deeply nourish ourselves in the midst of our busy lives, so we can continue this deep rest and balancing work long after our dreamy day together.
