Ayurveda means the “Science of Life,” a holistic view of keeping our bodies in balance by combining applied principles of yoga, meditation and diet.
Ayurveda is based on the idea that health problems occur due to imbalances in the body. When we become out of balance, we tend to stimulate, sedate and medicate our discomforts away. In order to restore health and to deal with these imbalances, we must be willing to make changes to lifestyle, diet, physical activity, relationships and more. These changes will give us a strong foundation in health and an increased ability to face the challenges and stresses of daily life without resorting to our relapsing into old addictive behaviors.
Ayurveda and yoga together support wellness at multiple levels - physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. When we are free of depression, anxiety, excessive stress, worry and additions, we are more able to live our lives to the fullest.
When we are both physically and mentally strong and healthy, we are able to:
*Have healthy relationships
*Make good life choices
*Handle the natural ups and downs of life
*Discover and grow toward our potential
*Live life with grace and dignity
In this class we will bridge the gap of emotional, spiritual and physical recovery.
The Yoga of Recovery program combines yogic psychology, threads of wisdom from the 12-Step literature, yoga poses to regulate the hormones, glands and organs.
Ayurvedic lifestyles and chakra work will be introduced to help the student find wholeness at all levels and live with grace and dignity in a life free from addition and self-destructive behaviors…one day at a time.
