The Himalayan Tradition has crossed national, ethnic and religious boundaries for millennia. In this series of workshops, our special theme will be the relationship of the Tibetan and Himalayan traditions of ayurveda and yoga. We will explore a range of theories and practices from the spiritual view of wellness and disease to the common ground of food practices, including specific yogic and healing practices culled from these related traditions.

Our relationship with food is the heart of Ayurvedic teaching. Ayurveda teaches that each person is a unique blend of physical, psychological and spiritual elements, and our relationship with food is an expression of our relationship with the world. What helps one person may not be helpful for another. Come explore the Ayurvedic teachings on food, diet and nutrition with an experienced practitioner and guide. Cynthia’s teaching style is gentle and introspective, emphasizing self-awareness and meditation. She began to study yogain 1978 and began her career in the natural foods and wellness retail world in 1979.

Ayurveda, the science of life and self-healing, is known as a sister science of yoga. In this workshop, we will explore the inner limbs of yoga practice in relationship to Ayurveda. Theinner limbs of yoga involve the senses, the mind and meditation. Ayurveda shares the same healing psychology and spiritual view as yoga. We will explore healing practices for the senses and the mind. Topics will include sub-doshas, koshas, kleshas, senses, chakras and yogic diet. All are welcome.
