Ayurveda, which translates as the knowledge of life, is the ancient Indian system of health often described as the sister science to yoga. Ayurvedic yoga helps to support our wellbeing on and off the mat.
Classes include flowing sequences and static yoga postures (sitting and lying on the mat and standing) breathing practices and a guided relaxation so you leave feeling calm and relaxed.
The class is slow paced and suitable for beginners.
Ayurveda is a based on an understanding that we and everything in nature are made up of a combination of vata, pitta and kapha energy. The amount of each in our innate constitutional make up is different. Ayurveda is a holistic system, recognising that we are not separate from the rest of the world, from nature or each other. This means that what we eat, our environment, the seasons, time of day, our interactions with other people, and even what we mentally consume through books and TV etc have an effect on vata, pitta and kapha.
Yoga is one of Ayurveda's tools to help achieve balance. As an Ayurvedic yoga teacher my classes and workshops work with this understanding, for example:
In Ayurvedic classes and workshops I will share information, tools and techniques which can be helpful to you on and off your yoga mat.
