Join Joanie Delph for two sessions of tangible, Ayurveda concepts to improve health and enhance our state of well-being, taken from a simple, effective healing system working for thousands of years.
As Ayurveda believes that disease process starts with poor digestion, we will delve into how poor digestion occurs, what it does to the body, and how to change those patterns.
Session 1 will introduce Ayurveda’s concepts on disease and discontentment and learn common terms used in Ayurveda practices; We will cover ‘Dosha’ or personal constitutions, which can disrupt the digestion of food, feelings, sleep patterns, and life happenings and learb ways to bring balance to those areas. We will also cover two accessible cleanses used commonly to re-set our digestion patterns.
Session 2 will offer detailed eating habits and choices that potentially create harmony in the body, rather than feed disease. This powerful information, when implemented, can move us into radiant health and lesson or reverse current problems.
