Ayurveda: Living in Balance
Ayurveda is the 5000+ year old healing tradition from India. This course is an introduction to the fundamental principles underlying this holistic science. The focus will be on applying these principles in our daily lives to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves as we experiment in self-healing.
Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai Massage is an experience of rhythmical movement where the practitioner leads the receiver through a flow of passive yoga stretches, deep muscle pressure and joint mobilization. Rooted in the Ayurvedic, Yoga and Buddhist traditions of the East, this ancient art combines massage, yoga, meditation and the practice of compassion in action. An introductory, full-body sequence of Thai Massage will be taught. Class will emphasize meditative awareness, breathing, use of body weight and posture.
