We are excited to be again presenting our popular ‘Ayurveda Secrets’ lifestyle workshop. Book in early so you don’t miss out!

Ayurveda is THE leading time-tested health system for promoting lasting transformation and overall wellbeing. Ayurveda means, ‘knowledge or science of life.’ Ayurveda is recognized by WHO as one of the most important medical traditions in the world and is an authentic system of medicine worldwide.

Whether you want to understand how to improve your overall wellbeing or the cause of many recurring ailments including stress/anxiety, overwhelm, digestive issues, tiredness or other persistent symptoms, this workshop will benefit you. We live busy, demanding lives and often function on auto-pilot and there may be lifestyle factors which we are unaware of which are counter-productive to our wellbeing. We will be exploring how the body, mind and spirit are interconnected and how lifestyle, behaviour and diet can cause imbalance and aggravation.

Ayurveda approaches wellbeing from a holistic perspective and offers restorative preventative approaches to bringing balance and harmony. It teaches us how to optimize and maintain health as well as improve energy and awareness.

This workshop demystifies Ayurveda and guides you step-by-step to understand how the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda when applied to daily living improve your wellbeing. We will help you understand your unique body type (dosha) and identify how to read and identify your body’s needs for optimal health. You will explore the energies which shape your constitution and how to make simple and practical lifestyle, behavioural and diet changes for improved wellness and to balance your constitution and your life.

Using Ayurveda principles, we will explore the qualities and effects of foods and how they balance or imbalance your body and mind and develop awareness of foods to heal, nourish and transform how you feel and function. As digestive power (agni) is pivotal to good health, we will discuss and guide you to restore your digestion to optimal health.

The end-state of your workshop will include you creating your own personal strategy plan for your unique body type and clear goals for continuing your Ayurveda wellness Journey. During the session, participants will map out their journey in a comprehensive Ayurveda lifestyle guide which is yours to keep as a working reference resource. You will develop a simple framework to plan everyday meals to nourish and balance your body and mind. To help you on your new journey to wellness we will gift you a beautiful keepsake Ayurveda recipe booklet. Additionally you will also have access to essential guidelines for maintaining balance for your constitution.

Whether you are a yoga practitioner or not, we will guide you to understand how the science of yoga and meditation complements and enhances Ayurveda to bring balance and harmony to your life drawing on ancient wisdom and present day practices. We will provide simple techniques to get you started.

Overall, this workshop will equip you with knowledge which can be practically applied to empower you to improve your overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and will empower you to take control of your life’s direction.

A wealth of universal knowledge is available to you in this workshop to transform your life from the inside out. You will be empowered with knowledge, strategies and applications to help you make changes that are realistic and manageable. You will leave with a new lease on life and commitment to establishing foundational principles for improved living.
