Restorative Yoga involves resting in supportive postures designed to engage the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest response) and release tensions held in the body. Restorative yoga offers an opportunity for respite from external stimuli and unity of the body and breath in the present moment.

iRest® Yoga Nidra is a process of meditative self-inquiry derived from the ancient teachings of yoga. When practiced regularly - a little and often - iRest enables us to meet each moment of life with unshakable peace and wellbeing, no matter how challenging or difficult our situations. In scientific trials, iRest has been shown to be effective for conditions including chronic pain, sleep problems, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Yoga nidra is traditionally practiced in a lying down position or in a supported, seated position.

Ayurveda Retreat: Introduction to the Doshas

Copy of Ayurveda_ Intro to the Doshas-2.png

I realize there are some words and concepts on this flyer with which many of you may be unfamiliar. If it seems as if it is written in another language, that is because many of the words are from Sanskrit—an ancient language of India—and will be explained in more depth during the retreat. For now, here’s a brief overview of the terms and their significance:

AYURVEDA—Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine indigenous to India that guides in the prevention and treatment of illness/imbalances through the process of becoming more in harmony with the laws of nature. Ayur means “LIFE”; Veda means “KNOWLEDGE” or “SCIENCE” i.e. Ayurveda is “the science or knowledge of life.”

DOSHA—To better understand the laws of nature, Ayurveda addresses the 5 fundamental elements— Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space—of which we and the entire universe are composed. According to Ayurveda, these elements combine as 3 main constitutional types (DOSHAS) that can help us to better understand our natural tendencies and predispositions and how to feel more balanced and whole.

We’ll explore each dosha during the retreat. Here’s a graphic to help you visually connect each dosha with its operating elements:

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. We will be just skimming the surface of the doshas during this retreat, and there will be more opportunities for us to work together in groups and individual sessions if you are interested in diving more deeply into the vast system of Ayurveda.

Love and light,

Jessica
