Weekend Retreat: Joy of Ayurveda

Friday, February 3 @ (PDT) 4:00 PM Sunday, February 5 @ (PDT) 4:00 PM PDT

IN PERSON OR ONLINE

Health is a positive state of happiness achieved through the normal condition of the doshas (constitution), dhatus (tissues), agni (digestive fire), and malas (waste). as well as a serene state of body, mind and senses. The strength of agni and doshas varies throughout the seasons. 

The Ayurvedic lifestyle is based on three things:

• Routine – Performing healthy practices at the same time each day embeds them in your lifestyle. Your body will know when to prepare itself to wake up, digest food and go to sleep. Regularity in your routines is essential. All of the body’s processes will benefit.

• Moderation – Provides balance to our lives and prevents overindulgence. Most commonly, the road to ill health begins with a lapse in judgment. Even though we know better, we frequently choose to make unhealthy choices, most often in pursuit of sense pleasures. This might be overloading the stomach with an excessive meal and disrupting our sleep cycle by staying up too late and sleeping during the day, or suppressing natural urges to cry, yawn, or even go to the bathroom.

• Tuning in to the natural rhythm of the doshas and agni – They naturally fluctuate during the day, by season and across phase of life.

Bring balance to your life!
