Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat

with Govind Radhakrishnan

Get a deeper understanding of the connection between yoga and ayurveda and how you can use the knowledge of ayurveda to decipher your own personal manual.

 

Most people have come across the word ayurveda at one time or another on their path of yoga. But the understanding of it is very different. Some associate it with pleasant oil massage by the beach or medicine known for its less pleasant flavour.

There is of course much more to ayurveda than this and the subject is so elaborate but imagine that you had your own personal manual to your body and mind. The philosophy of ayurveda works as helping to decipher the manual to our body and mind that we were born with. It helps us to reach a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.

 

What will we learn?

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the ancient traditional principles of ayurveda and how deeply it relates to yoga. You will get a deeper knowledge of ayurveda that you can use in your own life and yoga practice or bear in mind if you teach others. To make it a personal experience you will be using yourself as a case study.

Who is it for?

You don’t need to have experience with ayurveda. The workshop is for men and women of all ages who are curious about to get a deeper understanding of how yoga and ayurveda is connected. The workshop is suitable both for the participant who is new to ayurveda and for the advanced yoga teacher who wants to benefit from the principles of ayurveda in his/her teachings.
