Intro to Ayurveda with Tanja and Bill Price
Join wife and husband team Tanja, certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga teacher and Bill, certified Panchakarma Therapist for this Introduction lecture.
You will learn about Ayurveda—literally, "knowledge of life"—
It is is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing originating in the Vedic culture of India. Its goal is to help body, mind, and spirit regain their natural, optimal health through the proper balance of the five classical elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Learn about the elements, their qualities and how they relate to you and the world around us.
In Ayurveda, the five elements combine in different ways to form the three doshas, or mind-body types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Your fundamental constitution, or Prakruti, is an unique blend of the three doshas that was determined at the moment of conception and will remain constant throughout your life. Your constitution determines how you react to various foods, colors, aromas, and general life habits; it also determines what will cause you, in particular, to become out of balance, sick, and diseased. Knowledge of your constitution, and how to live in harmony with it is essential to developing optimal health.
Panchakarma are the Ayurvedic treatments given in Ayurvedic medicine. They are a fivefold detoxification treatment involving massage, herbal therapy, and other procedures.
