Ayurveda- the science of life- is the oldest healing system on the planet. This 5000 year old science is increasingly relevant as one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems available. Amita will share with you the guiding principles of Ayurveda, the pillars of well-being and longevity. In this workshop, Amita will give you simple tools to determine your own doshic constitution and improve your health through the balanced and dynamic integration of environment, body, mind, and spirit. Amita will explain how to incorporate ayurvedic knowledge into your daily lives by establishing a routine ( both universal and dosha specific practices) that promotes healing and improves quality of life. She welcomes a dialogue on how the integration of Ayurveda and Yoga offers perhaps the most complete system of physical, psychological, and spiritual well being in the world.

Testimonials from Amita’s students:
This workshop, Better Living The Ayurvedic Way, offers much more than a book could ever attempt to impart. Led by Amita Desai, born and raised in India, she is the ultimate teacher and guide on the principles of this ancient lifestyle. Informative, funny and thorough, Amita engagingly takes her students through the basics of Ayurveda. With personal stories and a heartfelt love and respect for this way of living, she teaches you the importance of nourishing the body, mind and spirit in a sacred fashion. She shares a hand out for her students to take home, a guide to beginning the day the Ayurveda way. As a special treat, students are given a gift made lovingly by Amita, another natural support of the body. And, don’t bother about getting on the web to buy Ayurveda tools for daily living, she ’s got the authentic ones and as a convenience she offers them for sale at the end of the workshop. I came away feeling calm, directed and excited about this new knowledge and have been implementing her Ayurveda daily living guide ever since. I can’t wait for her follow up workshops with more of her personal sharing experiences and delving deeper into all things Ayurveda. Thank you Amita! T. Denton
