Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Ayurveda teaches that everything in the universe is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health and there is a deep connection with the flow of life in its natural state.
Hatha “Ha” means sun and “tha” means moon so the Hatha practice helps us to balance our “masculine” and “feminine” aspects, finding equilibrium. During the practice, you will build strength and flexibility. This asana practice cultivates focus and helps to clear the energy pathways in the body bringing it to a sense of alignment.
Yin yoga is a practice that works the connective tissues (fascia, ligaments, tendons and bones) of the body. It is a soft and passive practice that requires slowing down so we can surrender the body to gravity and enter a state of self-inquiry and contemplation. It is an asana, and meditation practice all rolled into one, that helps to release and clear the energy pathways of the body.
Sometimes called the Yogi Sleep. Yoga Nidra counteracts stress and helps provide effective relief from depression and long-standing anxiety. It is an efficient way to obtain sleep. It helps clear the mind for learning and absorbing new material. Releases tension between body and mind and helps prepare for mediation practices. It is profoundly rejuvenating and helps with concentration and focus.
