The Knowledge of Life

Enhance your yoga practice and life with Ayurvedic principles

with Carin Cundey, CECP, AHE, CA, LMT

February 27-28, 2016

Ayurveda literally means “the knowledge of life.” It is a holistic health care system which incorporates the use of every aspect of life in order to assist our bodies in finding the way into our own individual equilibrium. When we find this place, we find health. The Principles of Ayurveda are not hard, fast rules, but guidelines that we can use to bring into our lives when we feel out of balance so that we can bring ourselves back into a place of harmony – then we find peace, joy, love and the ability to remain present. This workshop is divided into five sections. We will begin by providing an introduction to the wisdom and knowledge of this ancient practice. This Intro to Ayurveda will be required in order to attend subsequent sections.
