Introduction to Ayurveda

September 24, 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Ayurveda is the traditional, ancient Indian system of health science. Its name literally means “the science of life.” The Ayurvedic method of healthcare emphasizes a holistic view of health. This 5,000-year-old science focuses on harmonizing the body with nature through diet and lifestyle including yoga, meditation, and exercise.

In this noontime webinar, you will get an introduction to Ayurveda that will include its history, philosophy, basic building blocks, and a few daily routines you can implement. The practice of Ayurveda, when brought into life, has the power to unlock our capacity to see health as a tool for cultivating inner well-being. The dynamic aspect of this practice lies in its ability to spark within us a life-long conversation with our body. Instead of working against our body by following generic â??one-size-fits-allâ? practices, Ayurveda helps us deepen our understanding of our body’s unique needs.
