Ayurveda is the knowledge (veda) of life. This knowledge is universal, but more importantly, it is personal. With this knowledge, we live true to ourselves and we remain vital, healthy and conscious. Yoga and Ayurveda were historically understood within the context of each other. As parallel paths, one was always followed with an understanding of the other. To be a skilled yogi, we must understand our nature from the perspective of Ayurveda and vice versa. So please join James in this comprehensive weekend workshop, mixed with lecture, asana and fun. You will learn the basic tools of Ayurveda to identify doshic imbalances in yourself and others, and then heal them through diet, lifestyle, and herbs.

Ayurveda in Yoga Practice

• Ayurvedic psychology
• Pranayama for balancing doshas and the mind
