Often referred to as the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda is a powerful system of health and wellness for body, mind, and spirit. This course offers students an overview of Samkhya philosophy, a brief history of Ayurveda, and introduces the structure and function of Ayurvedic doshas (the body-mind constitutions), including states of balance and imbalance and their role in creating health and wellness. The importance of Ayurvedic wellness techniques, including daily routine, breathing practices, mantras, and diet will be presented as ways to develop self-awareness, which is the basis for healing the physical, emotional, mental, and subtle bodies.
