Ayurveda: Vegetarianism in Balance
Ayurveda (pronounced eye-your-vay-da), the "sister" science of yoga, is the oldest system of natural health care in the world. Born in India, it has been practiced continually for over 5,000 years. Emphasizing disease prevention and self-care, the word ayurveda means "the science of life." Through diet, lifestyle and physical practices, an individual can learn to balance the elements of water, fire and air in their bodies and minds, leading to lasting wellness. Ayurveda promotes a balanced, entirely-vegetarian diet with herbal treatments for body maintenance and prevention of disease. It is a system of health care, not sickness care.
This two-hour workshop will consist of a lecture presented in a friendly, approachable format, followed by discussion.
