Ayurveda is an ancient system of holistic healing indigenous to India that is more than 5000 years old. It has an oral history that is many millennia longer and it is thought by some scholars to be the world’s oldest healing system.
Ayurveda is a guide to the art of living; offering guidance in living habits and exercise & therapies, with the goal of restoring balance to the body, mind and spirit. In this way, the bodily systems are optimized and create a barrier to disease.
The basis of Ayurveda is that each of us has individual needs or requirements in lifestyle, exercise, diet, bodywork and other therapies according to our Ayurvedic type or dosha. As a cooperative group of practitioners, we will recommend the type of therapy that is best suited for you, according to your dosha and to your particular needs at this time.
All classes and workshops are limited to small groups so that the information may be tailored to your type.
