Ayurveda achieves wellness through an emphasis on prevention and balance. There are many internal and external factors that weigh on us as individuals to disturb our balance; examples include emotional states, diet and food choices, seasons and weather, physical trauma, and relationships, both at home and at work. This class helps participants to understand these factors, and defines appropriate actions, based on individual student personalities and constitutions, to restore balance. Health care professionals, care givers, and interested community members will all benefit from the knowledge gained in this course.
