Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences- Yoga being the science of Self-Realization and Ayurveda the science of Self-Healing.
Doshas are an Ayurveda concept which describe archetypal body characteristics as well as their tendency toward specific strengths, weaknesses, and imbalances. The three doshas being Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each of us have our own unique combination of these doshas, which can become more or less balanced according to daily practices, the food we eat, the seasons, our stage of life… and our yoga practices.
Join us for this workshops where we will learn how you can adapt your yoga practice and to teaching classes to bring balance the doshas.
