The Ayurvedic Principles in Relation to Yoga (Weekend Immersion Workshop)

September 8, 2023 @ 5:30 pm – September 10, 2023 @ 11:30 am

The Ayurvedic Principles in Relation to Yoga

Ayurveda (life)(study) and Yoga (union) are sister sciences birthed at the same time as complementary Vedic practices with a similar goal of finding inner stillness and ultimately Self-realization. Both practices emphasize creating a Sattvic environment for the body, mind, and emotions as a way to deepen our connection with the divine within.
If you have been practicing yoga asana for many years but still feel like you need a boost to advance on the path, the principles of Ayurveda can unlock knowledge to greater health + balance.
In this weekend, you will learn how Ayurveda can elevate your yoga practice and provide you with more tools for vitality, longevity + equanimity.  Here are a few items you will learn…
  • the 5 elements + their relationship to our wellbeing
  • daily routines (Dinacharya) for optimal health
  • yoga practices in relation to dosha
  • diet + loving practices around food
  • practices for the seasons of the year + the seasons of our life
  • the different forms of Ama and its effects on the tissues (dhatus)
  • Ayurvedic + yogic cleansing practices

This immersion will be taught by Candra Smith. To learn more about her, click here.
