Understanding your dosha
Looking at the body, mind and spirit through the lens of Ayurveda allows us to understand our bodies better, what makes them tick, and what makes them sick. This workshop is geared to help participants understand their unique attributes (prakruti) and how to maintain balance in busy, modern day life through healthy habits, breathing exercises, food and yoga.
Enquire here to book this session for your next group wellness event.
With our modern, busy lives, and fast-paced-fast-food existence, we can spend a great deal of our day erring on the side of mindLESS rather than mindFULL. This workshop allows participants to slow down and come back to center. The aim is to leave the workshop a little more awake, with eyes wide open at the impact our lifestyles and diet can impact on our health.
