Learn Ayurvedic philosophy applicable to today’s lifestyle and asanas to strengthen the body’s inherent tendencies toward seasonal imbalances.

Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, is one of the world’s oldest systems of healing. One of the many gifts it conveys is the importance of looking into Nature to find distilled wisdom that can help inspire us in our journey towards optimal well-being.

As we are interconnected with Mother Nature, we can more powerfully keep in tune with ourselves by attuning to her seasonal rhythms. In this unique 5-day workshop, we’ll emphasize the importance of sequencing for the seasons and adapting yoga postures, dietary approaches, cleansing techniques, daily rituals, and lifestyle routines to synchronize with the seasonal changes.

Students will learn Ayurvedic philosophy applicable to today’s lifestyle and asanas to strengthen the body’s inherent tendencies toward seasonal imbalances. The workshop will inspire the self-knowledge to deepen your practice both on and off the mat.

Faculty asks that you read the following book in preparation for the course:

  • Seasonal Health and Wellness: Change Your Life One Week At A Time by Melina Meza
