Event Details

Wednesdays in October // with Noël Graupner

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning life knowledge. It is the name of the world's oldest comprehensive health system, one which offers unique insight into creating balance among all realms of wellness - physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual - using tools like diet and plant remedy, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, breathwork, color, and aromatherapy to create harmony between the mind, body, and natural world.

Balance in mind and body is divine, natural order according to Ayurveda. Balance is our true nature and can otherwise be defined as health and happiness. This compact, four session course will cover the Ayurvedic theory of the five elements, used to determine one’s unique mind-body type and constitution which can be understood as one’s true nature. Food and herbs will be explained through the theory of the six tastes and basic diet guidelines for each mind-body type will be discussed. Following will be an explanation of the anatomy and metabolism of the seven tissue layers of the body, how physiological imbalances develop along with how they can be properly identified, eliminated, and prevented in the future. We will tie all the information together with a session on lifestyle habits, how to structure your decision making throughout the day and the year with practical guidelines and calls to action. 

The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the principles of Ayurveda that teach how, through diet, lifestyle, and other methods, individuals can move towards a place of balance, of health and happiness. Each class will be a combination of lecture and group discussion. Handouts will be given and taking notes will be encouraged; light assignments may be given between classes. Classes are two hours length and will begin promptly at 630PM. Fall-season appropriate vegan dinners will be provided at the beginning of each class very graciously by INDAY.
