Ayurveda is a traditional Vedic medicine that has been handed down from generation to generation in India. It emphasizes not only physical health, but also a comprehensive balance of mind, behavior and environment, and its name means Ayus (life) and Veda (knowledge) in Sanskrit.
According to the Tri-dosha theory, minerals, plants, animals, humans, and the environment are classified into three elements: Vata (air/wind), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water/earth) and it offers ways to improve one’s lifestyle through diet, herbs, color therapy, aromatherapy, sound healing, bodywork, breathing exercises, meditation, and panchakarma (detoxification) to balance each dosha.
Ayurveda is the science of keeping the body, the vehicle of the soul, healthy, and Yoga is the science of elevating the soul, both of which are indispensable.
The sage Patanjali, who is said to have compiled the Yoga Sutras in the 2nd-4th centuries, left a comment on the Charaka Samhita, the scriptures of Ayurveda. As can be seen from this, the two are inseparably linked like brothers, and Ayurveda can bring us many insights to deepen our yoga practice.
I will guide you through your daily life, diet, yoga, meditation, and mantras, following the wisdom of Ayurveda. I hope that by incorporating Ayurvedic yoga and remedies into your daily life, you will be able to bring out the best in yourself and enrich your daily life.
In this course, you will learn about the habits of your body and mind through Ayurveda, and learn how to take care of yourself using tools such as diet, massage, aromatherapy, yoga philosophy, asanas (body postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, and sound therapy.
Ayurveda is not just a beauty regimen, it is based on the spiritual teachings of the Vedas. By restoring your inner balance and fostering harmony with your surroundings, you will be filled with inner radiance and beauty.
In this course, you will learn how to incorporate the cosmic wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga into your daily life, rather than just keeping it on the shelf in your mind as knowledge.
In this course, we will not only be cooking, but we will also be talking about Ayurveda and Yoga in a delicious and fun way.
As our yoga practice deepens, our food preferences naturally change. For example, you may not be able to eat meat or stimulants anymore. But we are not sure what to eat and how to eat it and which diet is best for me.
This is where the Ayurvedic diet comes in.
Each food has a different energy, and since food affects not only the physical body but also the mind, what you eat will change the way you deepen your yoga practice.
With this in mind, the course will be based on the theory of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, and introduce a healthy menu using spices that are nutritious and gentle to the body while following the changing seasons. You will learn not only the flavors of the spices, but also how each spice affects the body and mind, while cooking in a simple, delicious, and fun way.
Why don’t you apply the wisdom of Ayurveda, which you have only understood in your head, to your daily life?
This retreat, which started in 2017 and is held every February, offers the opportunity to experience the Panchakarma program, a spiritual and physical treatment, with one of India’s best Ayurvedic doctors, Dr. Unni.
When we overlook our poor diet and daily fatigue, toxins can easily accumulate in the body. The treatment (treatments, medication, dietary guidance) given under the diagnosis of Dr. Unni is very powerful in discharging toxins from the body and resetting the body physically and mentally from the inside out.
By the end of the trip, everyone will be blessed with a relaxed state of mind and body.
Meditate in the meditative waves of India, listen to the sound of the waves, feel the breeze blowing through the coconut jungle, and surrender your body to the massage strokes for nine days of detoxification and purification, resetting your body from the inside out and returning to your true self.
