Description

The Ayurveda Approach: An Introductory Workshop Series

Presented by The Trustees

Ayurveda, is “the science of life”, the oldest continually practiced health-care system in the world, (5000 years). The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are that the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and that nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body.

The KITCHEN at The Boston Public Market presents a two-session series to provide an introduction to Ayurveda and allow attendees to build a daily practice. The series is lead by Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Lisa Cohen. It is recommended that attendees join us for both sessions; however single session tickets can also be purchased.

Introduction to Ayurveda | Monday, May 8th | 6:00-8:00 pm

The Ayurvedic approach is about aligning with the elements and cycles of nature rather than struggling or trying to force things to go your way. Nature functions with effortless ease, frictionlessly and spontaneously. When in balance, you naturally desire only that which nurtures your health and life. You flow in harmony with your body’s natural rhythms, getting restful sleep, feeding your senses with experiences, tastes, touch, aromas, sounds, and sights that uplift and nourish you.

Topics covered include:

  • Definition of Ayurveda
  • Factors that affect health and well being
  • Qualities
  • The 2 Laws of Ayurveda
  • The 4 components of Life
  • The 5 Elements
  • The 3 Doshas
  • Your unique biology and how to apply Ayurvedic Principles to YOU.

There is no prerequisite for this program, and handouts will be provided.

Ayurvedic Daily Routine | Monday, May 15 | 6:00-8:00 pm

An Ayurvedic Daily Routine (‘Dinacarya”) teaches us to ride nature’s waves so we can effortlessly float through each day. Small healthy habits we perform consistently on a daily basis can have immense cumulative benefit in our life. Dinacarya is the foundation of health, happiness and spiritual advancement. A steady routine consistent with the rhythms of nature supports health. By understanding the functioning of the human body as it relates to the Ayurvedic Clock, one can make mindful choices throughout the day that will help to bring balance, support health, and boost mental and physical focus and immunity.

Topics covered include:

  • The Ayurvedic Clock
  • Morning Routine
  • Mealtimes
  • Sleep
  • Meditation
  • Self-Massage

Prerequisite: Introduction to Ayurveda is strongly recommended. Handouts will be provided.
