Ayurvedic Health : The Dance of Balance (a Rasa Lila)

  • Palo Santo Wellness Boutique 1707 East Passyunk Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19148 United States (map)

Especially in this climate of tremendous information, we hear often about Balance and Health, about finding Balance, and about finding Health. And yet, somehow the practice and the process remains mysterious. Practices and choices that work miracles for one person, have no effect, or even ill effect on another. 

Why is this?

Though the words Health and Balance seem static, the experience of Health and Balance are actually anything but. These terms and experiences are relative in their equilibrium and thus, there is nuance behind the certain literacy needed to navigate them. 

In this 5 hour immersion we will use the practice of Ayurveda and Yoga to explore what are the delightful parts that make up what we perceive as Dynamic Health - both in the Body, in the Mind, in the Spirit, and in the Environment. 

This program is a wonderful match for all Practitioners of Yoga as well as those that have been exploring the intricacies of Wellness. 

We will cover : 

  • Vayu and Asana and Massage as Therapy
  • Sattva, Rajas, Tamas
  • 20 Gunas
  • 5 Elements Theory
  • 3 Dosha
  • Time, Place, and Circumstance
  • Recognizing Energetic Expression in Food, Environment, and Activity (including Movement and Communication)
  • Using the Element and Guna Practice to Make Choices to Support Current State of Health and/or Achieve Desired State of Health
