AYURVEDA AND YOGA are ancient & traditional forms of healing originating from India. Together, like sisters, they form a complete approach for optimal health benefits. While Ayurveda heals the vitality of the physical body through food and nutritional science, Yoga reveals the secret powers of the mind.
This collaborative Ayurveda Workshop & Yoga Retreat is designed to give you some useful tools to help create better health, calm mind and balance.
“Searching outside of you is Samsara (the World), searching inside of you is Nirvana”. To attain a higher level of holistic balance, the integration between Ayurveda and Vinyasa creates the healthy harmony of body and mind.
INTRODUCTION TO AYURVEDIC NUTRITION WORKSHOP
Ayurveda is a traditional system for optimal health and wellbeing based on the idea of balance in bodily systems using a combination of diet, herbal treatments and yoga.
This workshop will explore personalised nutrition from an Ayurvedic perspective. You will be guided through the different body types in Ayurveda (called doshas) and how to work out your own dosha. Dietary advice for each dosha will be provided and you will have the opportunity to try different dosha-inspired dishes for lunch each day. After lunch, Dr George will explain some of the traditional Ayurveda principles from a modern nutritional science point of view.
VIPASSANA VINYASA YOGA
Ace will use a Vipassana Vinyasa meditation & yoga technique to guide you from step-one through breath, senses, chakras and emerging with gentle movements of yoga to enhance the energy flow in your body.
Vipassana is one of India’s most ancient meditation practices. It was discovered more than 2500 years ago by Gotama Siddhartha, the Buddha. During the Buddha’s time, large numbers of people in the north of India were free from the bond of suffering by practicing Vipassana. Over time, the technique remained in the Buddism practice.
The technique of Vipassana is simple. Vipassana means “to see things as they really are”. Observation of the moment-to-moment experience cleans the mental layers, one after another.
