What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest medical systems, and is known as the sister science to yoga. It literally translates to the “wisdom of life” or “science of life”. Some of it’s practices includes the use of herbal and natural remedies for illness and disease, and comes with a wealth of knowledge on how to live holistically, healthfully, and happily. Join us this February with our guest, Afrin, trained Ayurveda counselor and practitioner, as we learn the fundamentals in this Ayurveda Immersion, and how we can intertwine it’s practices within our practice of yoga.
