Yoga and Ayurveda Workshop
Yoga and Ayurveda are both ancient healing systems from India. Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that honors and respects our relationships with nature and our connections with our inner spirit. Ayurveda is not so much about rules and regulations as it is about teaching us to awaken our inner wisdom. Our textbook for this process is our own body rather than the opinions of experts. The beginning of knowing Ayurveda is to experience our relationship with the elemental forces of nature-ether, air, water, fire, and earth. In this workshop you will learn to identify your own body's blend of the elemental forces, which is known as your dosha. You will learn some basic principles of using Ayurveda in our everyday life and some ways to use yoga to help strengthen and balance your doshas. Teacher: Nancy Kalinski is a board certified Physician Assistant and a certified yoga teacher who worked for 25 years in primary care, family medicine, and occupational medicine. Nancy teaches yoga with a medical focus. Her specialty is in working with individuals or small groups to help them allow yoga to work for them. She trained in the Bija Ananda Yoga Teacher Training and YogaFit International.
