Ayurveda is one of the worldâ€™s oldest holistic healing systems. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. This class will focus on determining oneâ€™s Prakruti or original constitution which will be expressed through the predominating dosha (one of three bodily humors - wind, bile or phlegm - that make up oneâ€™s constitution) or dosha combination. The doshas are known as Vata, Pitta & Kapha. Once determined, you will then be able to serve their Prakruti and attain balanced health by balancing your diet and lifestyle appropriately. Herbal and nutritional recommendations will be made as appropriate to each dosha. Instructor: L. Hughes
