Introduction to Ayurveda



Saturday Morning, December 6th / 10:30 to 11:30AM


Ellwood’s Community Room


In this workshop, Joanna will present Ayurveda as science of life which covers all areas of living healthily, happily and in harmony with the universe.  Based on these principles, Joanna will provide advice and guidelines as to how to adjust your life style to serve you best.  She will discuss the use of hot, cold, dry and damp to enhance our health rather then compromise it and present the concept of Dosha – fundamental types the knowledge which allows us to fine-tune diet, exercise, etc. to a persons specific needs.

The participants will have the opportunity to take a Dosha test and ask questions & learn how to use that information to gain better health.
