Ayurveda is the ancient, holistic approach to health and wellbeing and is commonly known as the "sister science" to yoga. Formed in India 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda focuses on the individual's constitution to bring balance to the individual's physical, emotional, and mental health. Ayurveda uses diet, yoga, meditation, pranayama, wellness techniques (such as the neti pot), and lifestyle routines to bring balance into the individual's life. There is no one size fits all method, and techniques for wellbeing can change with season, age, and lifestyle changes. Join Laurie Searle in exploring the basics of Ayurveda, different aspects of this ancient practice, and how to bring these techniques into your personal life.
Laurie Searle, E-RYT500, has been teaching for over twenty years and leads teacher trainings in the Los Angeles area and internationally through the Sphota Yoga School. She is the founder of F.E.D.(Fight Eating Disorders), a 501c3 humanitarian non-profit organization offering assistance for those suffering from eating disorders who are unable to afford medical support.
