Ayurveda tailored for you: Fully Booked

 Registration is closed for this event
On this introductory Ayurveda weekend, you will learn how to keep yourself happy, healthy and vibrant. Ayurveda focuses on diet, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and natural therapies, and like a compass it can give you the direction you need to take in your life.

Welcome to the wonderful and fascinating world of Ayurveda! This introductory weekend will give you a practical understanding of Ayurveda which you can then use to keep yourself and your loved ones happy, healthy and vibrant.

How do you make sense of a vast variety of health information that is often contradictory? Ayurveda offers a logical way forward. This traditional natural healing system from India focuses on diet, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and natural therapies, and like a compass it can give you the direction you need to take in your life.

In Ayurveda, there are three constitution types or ‘doshas’. Finding your unique constitution gives you a way of developing an effective personal plan to bring you an abundance of health and vitality.

What you will learn about: 

  • background and philosophy of Ayurveda
  • the elements and the doshas
  • how to discover your dosha type
  • how to recognise when your dosha is in balance and when it is not
  • what diet, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and therapies are balancing and rejuvenating for you.

Thank you all so much! I love this life-enriching and balance-promoting wisdom – S.K. (personal assistant)

A very fascinating course. What we have learned in just 2 days can certainly transform our lives! Excellent teaching; I'm inspired and empowered to implement this healing science. BRILLIANT!! – S.R. (retired teacher)

I have really enjoyed learning about another approach to lifting my level of health up higher. The teaching team make it very accessible and interesting as well as interactive. Thank you – L.B. (shop manager)
