About the Event
Did you know that by tapping into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, you could halt or slow down escalating health imbalances? If not, this workshop is for you. The answer lies in something small called microroutines. These are simple, tiny routines performed intentionally on a daily basis in tandem with your body’s rhythms. By understanding the Ayurvedic science behind microroutines, you can take an accessible step toward harmony with nature. In this 5-session online engagement workshop, you will take a deep dive into what Ayurvedic literature calls dinacharya (daily routine) as well as ritucharya (seasonal routine). You will discover effective microroutines to follow throughout the year, with a specific focus on fall, winter, and spring. According to Ayurveda, an imbalanced digestive system is the root cause of many ailments. You will learn to identify early warning signs indicating poor digestion and corrective strategies to get it back on track. All proposed solutions offered during these sessions will be sourced directly from classical Ayurvedic texts along with references, in conjunction with citing modern research. A list of materials will be made available prior to the first class so that you can begin experimenting with these microroutines in advance. All microroutines prescribed by the instructor are hassle-free to follow in daily life. Theoretical concepts of Ayurveda will be taught through interactive lectures and breakout sessions.
