Discover Ayurveda for Better Health
With Marianne Simonin
26 November 2017, 14:00–16:00
This workshop aims at introducing the benefits of Ayurveda, which is the ancient traditional medical system from India. Sharing the same philosophy as Yoga, it looks at each individual as a micro-universe; by combining a simple daily routine, right food and herbal preparation suitable for your constitution, it provides a way to greater health and minimises disease formation.
During the two hours you will learn the qualities the doshas, how they relate to the five great elements, and their impact on your health when they become imbalanced. The first part will introduce you to the basic principles of Ayurveda, and will include an interactive practice (pairing-up), based on observation and feedbacks. During the second part we will look more at some common conditions, and how integrating an ayurvedic lifestyle can help you regain balance. In Ayurveda certain food becomes medicine, so you will learn how to use common spices to boost your health, and the importance of incorporating the 6 tastes in your cooking.
Who is it for?
This workshop is for total beginners as well as those who already have some understanding and would like to consolidate their knowledge.
What to bring:
Please bring a notebook and a pen, as taking notes will be helpful as a reminder of the learning, as well as when doing the pair-up exercises.
Suitable for all levels.
