Program Description

Using the practices of Ayurveda, especially its daily routines, you can naturally enhance your overall health and longevity and experience ongoing balance and joy.

This weekend brings together two experts on Eastern medicine for a workshop that translates Ayurvedic theory and practices into an effective approach to daily and seasonal self-care.

You will learn the Ayurvedic perspective on the role of our senses, known in Sanskrit as indriyas, and how they relate to the elements, the seasons, and our daily routines, or dinacharya, to positively impact our health and outlook.

Through presentations, group discussion, stories, and experiential practice, you will learn:

  • How refining the senses enhances overall health
  • Practical techniques for well-being as part of a daily routine
  • How to become aware of the senses and be able to discern what they need day-to-day to support their health
  • Specific protocols to implement immediately for enhanced vitality, improved sleep, and a calm mind.

All are welcome. Beginners will open their eyes, mind, and heart to the benefits of learning this system of health that has been in practice for more than 5,000 years. Seasoned practitioners of yoga and Ayurveda will deepen their knowledge and experience during this unique opportunity to learn from having two world-renowned doctors together in the same workshop.

Everyone will leave with a heightened awareness of the importance of sensory health and the tools to increase it.

Why Attend?

  • Gain deeper insight into what your body and senses need so you can feel balanced, experience greater overall health, and age well.

  • Naturally take care of your body and mind with daily routines that ground your energy, sooth your senses, and set you up for energized days and deeply restful nights.
