The exercises are highly intentional, and through intention and breath we are able to manipulate the various subtle energies of the body, mind and spirit.

~ Introduction to Ayurveda ~

NCC 2107-01    CRN: 82176

Category: Complementary Health &Wellness

Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. This class will focus on determining one’s Prakruti or original constitution which will be expressed through the predominating do- sha (one of three bodily humors – wind, bile or phlegm – that make up one’s constitution) or dosha combination. The doshas are known as Vata, Pitta & Kapha. Once determined, you will then be able to serve their Prakruti and attain balanced health by balancing your diet and lifestyle appropriately. Herbal and nutritional recommendations will be made as appropriate to each dosha.

Section: NCC2107-01  CRN: 82176   Course fee: $39.00
