Introduction to Ayurveda

NCC 2107

Ayurveda is one of the world’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.

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
