Ayurveda for Bodyworkers

2013StoneSpaWebsite (117 of 130)Ayurveda is an ancient science & healing system which emphasizes the vitality and well-being of each individual which can be achieved through balanced lifestyle choices. This holistic system addresses the root of disease rather than just alleviate symptoms by incorporating the use of herbs, oils, essences, diet, meditation, yoga, and bodywork. It’s 5,000+ year old principles offer deep reaching solutions to present day health concerns and is becoming highly sought after in the west.

The teachings of Ayurveda explain simple yet profound ways of regaining or maintaining excellent health which is based on the unique constitution that each of us is born with a predominance of one of The Three Doshas- Vata, Pitta, Kapha. These doshas are created from the combination of the Five Elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) which makes up everything in our world. The specific combination of these elements gives us our spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and psychological nature- our true constitution is called Prakruti. For good health we must strive to keep ourselves balanced in ways that are appropriate for each of us. One important way this can be done is through Ayurvedic bodywork.

Ayurveda for Bodyworkers is a workshop is designed to introduce therapists to basic Ayurvedic principles and applications of restorative Ayurvedic body treatments as well as personal self-care techniques. We will explore the psychological and physical attributes of the three mind-body types (Dosha’s)~Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and discuss how to create treatments that help bring balance to the Dosha’s.
