Integrative Wellness: Asana, Pranayama, Ayurveda

Integrative Wellness

Integrative wellness is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. It offers a body of wisdom to help people realize their full human potential through awakening the powers of self-healing within us.

Yoga- including both asana postures and breathing practices, and Ayurveda- balancing our physical and energetic systems and using diet and herbal treatment, are two “sister” practices that originated in India thousands of years ago. Explored together these complementary practices can offer us transformative tools to foster greater health and vitality.

Workshop Specifics

This workshop will focus on how combining Ayurveda and Yoga principles and practice can catalyze a complete physical, mental and spiritual transformation of the individual.
