During this fascinating and invaluable weekend, you will learn:

  • The fundamentals of Ayurveda for a balanced, healthy, happy life.
  • How to determine your own individual constitution and current state of balance or imbalance
  • The influences of your body type, the seasons, time of day, and other environmental factors
  • How the doshas (body types) “speak” to you when you're out of balance or balanced
  • How to balance the doshas through diet, with yoga postures and pranayama, and through increasing the “sattwic,” or elevating parts of your life
