Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic whole-body healing systems that has been gaining popularityin the West in recent years. Recognizing that we are all different, Ayurveda, (the healing system of yoga) incorporates nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, remedies, and routines that are designed for our specific constitution. By realizing more about ourselves, we learn to live more aligned with nature and we experience greater healthand wellbeing. Handouts and a test to help determine your specific constitution are included in this session.
Essential Oils @ 2:30pm
Essential Oils have been used in holistic healing practices dating back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. Today essential oils can be found almost
anywhere, yet many people don’t understand why they work or how to use them. So, we will discuss what essential oils are, why they work, and how to use them! Learn which oils are best for specific complaints like indigestion, headaches, sore muscles, insomnia, cuts and wounds, stress relief, and much more. Becky will bring oils so that you can experience their aromatic effect. If you have oils at home, feel free to bring them. This will be a fun, informative class!
