This 5 weekend course is designed for students who wish to understand their individual nature according to Ayurvedic principles. Students will learn how the different constitutions, both physical and psychological, are affected by the food we eat, our work and leisure activities, stage of life, the climate and the seasons. They will learn how to establish a daily routine and lifestyle uniquely tailored to maximise their physical and mental well-being and energy and minimise the likelihood of ill health. Students will also learn how to recognise the early stages of imbalance and how to balance the doshas to prevent the disease process from progressing.
On a mental level the course will include education about both the Western and Yogic/ Ayurvedic models of the mind. These principles will be interpreted with suggestions for appropriate interventions to restore balance where required, using yoga asanas, pranayama, yoga nidra and meditation techniques.
