Yoga Journal LIVE!: Colorado

September 24, 2016 @ 9:00 am - September 26, 2016 @ 4:30 pm


Ayurveda 101 for Yogis: Ayurvedic Theory, Wellness Tools for Your Mind-Body Type, Vata-Balancing Yoga

Modern science continues to prove that simple ancient practices can transform your life. By identifying your unique dosha, or mind-body type, you can refine your eating and sleeping habits so you feel your best every day.

The secret to enriching your day with more energy, clarity, and motivation is Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Indian system of healing and sister science to Yoga. Experience these time-tested tools at YJ LIVE! Colorado in a daylong Ayurvedic retreat on Saturday, September 24, led by Dr. John Douillard, global leader in natural wellness and Ayurveda, and Larissa Hall Carlson, Dean of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda and yoga teacher.

Through circadian medicine, a powerful Ayurvedic routine linked to better health, longer life, and happiness, you’ll sync up with the cycles of nature. Find out which foods nourish your dosha (unique mind-body type) and the best time to eat to support digestion and transform stress into joy.

Then you’ll dive into a juicy Ayurvedic yoga journey to relax the body, soothe nerves, and restore tranquility to the mind. Harmonize vata dosha in time for Autumn with a full-body asana sequence, pranayama, and mindfulness meditation. Then you’ll try Abhyanga (self-massage) techniques to melt tension, and finish the day with a restorative yoga nidra to boost immunity.
