An informative talk with Cory Tixier & Saadia Khan & Ayurvedic-inspired Dinner

While allopathic medicine tends to focus on the management of disease, Ayurveda provides us with the knowledge of how to prevent disease and how to eliminate its root cause if it does occur.  This profound medical system gives us a framework for uncovering our individual constitution and thus our greatest potential for health. Together we will explore the origins, founding philosophies and basic principles underlining this powerful science. And of course shed light on the mysterious Vata, Pitta and Kapha… Who are these guys anyway? What do they do... And why is it so important for to know about them?  

Whether you wish to deepen your knowledge of Ayurveda or are just curious what all the hype is about; This in-depth discussion will impart in you an empowering perspective on personal health. Great for yoga instructors, health practitioners, or anyone wishing to take their health into their own hands.

Ayurveda is translated as the science of life or science of living. It is the science and art of aligning your habits and activities with awareness and rhythm in order to promote health and longevity. Generically known as traditional Indian medicine, Ayurveda aims to treat the individual as a whole, taking into account body, mind and emotions. Ayurveda uses in-depth client intake to determine each individual’s unique constitution and any imbalances within the individual, or lifestyle. By establishing each individual’s personal needs, Ayurveda aims to bring us back to our place of balance, happiness and health.
