January 21st, 2022 ~ OM Jungle Medicine
Ayurveda, the ancient body, mind and spiritual health system of India, directly translates as the “knowledge of life”. This scientifically systematic system (much like Traditional Chinese Medicine - TCM) has at its’ foundation the concept that all things are created as a blend of the five elements Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. We, as humans, fit into the web of life both individually and collectively. To understand ourselves through the lens of Ayurveda, even to a small extent, helps us move through the world with increased health, harmony, and balance with ourselves and the world around us.
This one day workshop will include:
Dosha worksheet - This short form, filled out throughout the day, will help you to discover your unique blend of elements (Prakruti) and perhaps the elements that may be out of balance (Vikruti).
9-11 am - All-levels Ayurvedic yoga and Breathwork practice and introduction.
11am-12pm - Free time at OM Jungle Medicine. Relax by the pool and relish the beauty of this special retreat center.
12-1pm - Ayurvedic lunch - Enjoy a nourishing crafted meal prepared by OM’s own chef Katerina, and specifically designed by Donna to satisfy all Elemental types (Dosha) and to include all tastes (Rasa).
1-1:20pm - Post Digestive Yoga Nidra - This short meditation process will enhance digestion and improve learning.
1:30-3pm - Discussion ~ Now that you have “embodied ” a little Ayurveda, let’s help your general understanding become more clear! We will discuss Dosha, Ayurvedic lifestyle, and diet answering questions in an open informative discussion.
