The Essence of Ayurveda

1st Class- This is perhaps the most important class as fundamental principles will be covered. We will delve into the 20 gunas, the 20 pairs of opposite qualities, that when understood allow us to communicate with Nature herself. We will unpack how these qualities relate to the 3 doshas, the seasons, foods and even lifestyle. Each student will determine his or her unique prakruti (constitutional type).
2nd Class– We will cover all manner of Ayurvedic wisdom in relation to diet. Ayurvedic eating encompasses much more than the foods we eat. We will learn numerous practices for keeping agni (the digestive fire) strong and healthy, proper food combining, how the six tastes can be employed to balance the doshas and more. We will discuss how to evolve eating habits and get out of food ruts. Students will create a dietary action plan to balance their dosha and sustain lasting health.
3rd Class- We will discover the art of the dinacharya, the Ayurvedic daily routine. Students will create a personal dinacharya to incorporate many balancing Ayurvedic self-care practices.
4th Class- We will explore yet another Ayurvedic practice for increased energy, clarity, radiant skin and general wellness- a simple Ayurvedic home cleanse. We will cover in detail; why we should cleanse, when to cleanse and how to cleanse. Students will receive clear instructions on how to undergo a safe and effective, ten-day Ayurvedic cleanse.
Classes will be held at Elevate Day Spa 222 5th Ave, Ouray, CO. For questions or to sign up please call- 970-325-7233.

Finally, students will come to see how these qualities permeate foods, other substances and even behaviors, and how Ayurveda utilizes them as a tool to bring balance and health to the mind.
