Ayurvedic Approach to Yoga

Deepti Sehgal - TH1SEH

Ayurvedic Approach to Yoga. 6-Hr Workshop (Theory + Demonstration)At the heart of a great Yoga practice lies a belief to be able to heal the body & the mind. Traditionally, Yoga is not a one-size-fits-all approach. True healing with Yoga begins with knowing one's physical, emotional & behavioral tendencies deeply, and being able to co-relate the health conditions surfacing from these tendencies. The Ayurvedic approach to Yoga directly works on your energy systems to make you feel great, energized & relaxed. It is based on a definitive body-mind framework from the Ayurveda perspective. It brings about inner harmony in the body & mind by regulating the disturbed energy due to doshic (energetic) imbalances. In this Ayurvedic approach to Yoga? workshop, you learn this framework for recognizing your specific body-mind archetype based on Vata, Pitta & Kapha dosha tendencies manifesting within you as health conditions or emotional disturbances. This approach brings a deeper awareness to your yoga practice by filtering your practice from the lens of Ayurveda. You will learn the alchemy of Yoga & Ayurveda combined with diet & lifestyle shifts to create a state of inner harmony & balance with strategically designed Yoga practice. This 6 hr workshop dives deeper into realizing your dosha, physical & emotional manifestations of your aggravated doshas, physical sites where these doshas create health concerns, and targeting these dosha-aggravated spots in the body with a clearly defined yoga practice and aligning it with dosha-specific yoga asanas, pranayama, diet, lifestyle & herbs. The workshop is divided into four parts:-Part 1 ? Explains Ayurvedic concepts of body-mind archetypes known as dosha-guna theory, the concept of Prakriti (constitution) & concept of pranas (energy) which are key concepts behind harmonizing the imbalanced doshas.-Part 2, 3 & 4 ? Here, we peel each archetype of Vata Pitta & Kapha layer by layer. It explains a framework to recognize your specific dosha prominence, signs of dosha excesses & deficiencies (imbalances), manifestations of doshas into physical & emotional states, and health conditions arising out of these imbalances. You will learn the logic behind choosing the right yoga asana, pranayama, diet & lifestyle for your archetype & imbalances arising out of it.
