Ayurveda in Practice with Nora
on the schedule at the Shala!
Every Thursday 11:30-12:30pm
Beginning March 5th 2015

This class can be applied to all levels of Yogic practitioners. The techniques in this class can be used for self-care and to care for loved ones. Ayurveda, which literally translated means “the science or knowledge of life” is the traditional medical system of India. The knowledge of Ayurveda has its written origins in the Vedas, the sacred texts of India, believed to be the oldest writings in the world, and is the sister science of Yoga. Ayurveda’s approach to healing is to reestablish harmony between self and environment. Once reestablished, the need for the body to communicate disharmony diminishes, symptoms of illness dissipate, and healing is said to have occurred. Ayurveda describes the human being as being composed of five elements, three doshas (biological energies), seven dhatus (tissues), and numerous srotas (channels). The five elements are ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Nora is a certified Ayurvedic Counselor and has many years of experience as a yoga teacher, spiritual coach and energy worker. She will guide you to understand your own composition of the elemental qualities (dosha) and help you to connect with your environment and its affects on your body and mind to facilitate balance and healing. This class is meant to teach the wisdom of Ayurveda that can be applied practically to every day living and to harmonize with consistent yoga practice.

Ayurveda has widespread life-improving benefits. In this class you will learn how to empower yourself by embracing the rhythm of nature and apply ancient, organic Ayurvedic techniques to facilitate balance in your mind and body and to enhance your yoga practice.
