Basics of Ayurveda


An experiential introduction to the practices and theories of Ayurveda.



As we cultivate body awareness through our yoga practice, the desire to learn more about ourselves begins to emerge. In this course you will experience how to discern imbalances, apply that knowledge to life and restore balance. Using the Phoenix Rising educational process – experience, explore, and discern, to source informed choice – this course will focus on practical application as well as upon building an introductory level knowledge base.
