““When vata is in balance, you think clearly, move easily and are very flexible. If vata becomes disturbed, you experience muscle cramping, all types of pain and paralysis, tics, fear and anxiety. Because it’s so light and subtle, vata is the dosha which most easily goes out of balance.”

 

Tiffany Shelton

In a world filled with constant stress and anxiety, finding inner calm and balance is essential for our overall well-being.

Discover the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and the transformative power of Yoga in our 3-hour workshop, "Harmony Within: Ayurveda and Yoga for Balancing the Nervous System."

 

This workshop is a holistic journey to understand, nourish, and rejuvenate your nervous system, the core of your physical and emotional health. You will be guided through the Ayurvedic principles for balancing the nervous system and Vata dosha, experience some Ayurvedic rituals and immerse in yoga practice specially designed for you to achieve a state of balance and harmony.

In Ayurveda, the holistic medicine from India, the Vata dosha is one of the three fundamental energies that govern the human body and mind. It is often called as the queen of doshas because it is closely connected to the nervous system, controlling all the movements happening in the body & mind. When Vata is in balance, it contributes to mental clarity, creativity, resilience, good sleep and energy. However, imbalance of Vata can lead to disruptions in the nervous system, causing symptoms like anxiety, intrusive thoughts, restlessness, insomnia, digestive distress and even neurological disorders.

Meditation

The nervous system plays a role in almost everything we do. It consists of the brain, spinal cord and a network of nerves. It is responsible for pretty much all the functions in our body. 

When we practice yoga asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation, we are soothing our nervous system reducing the "fight or flight" response and moving into the "rest and digest" nervous state which promotes well-being, a sense of safety, clarity and connection. 

In this workshop we are going to look at various ways of balancing Vata dosha through food, herbs, daily rituals, marma massage, lifestyle, breathwork and yoga asanas in order to build resources that help us stay regulated, connected and safe. 

 

In this workshop, we will explore: 

  • What is Vata dosha in Ayurveda and how it manifests in the body and the mind

  • What is the function of the nervous system 

  • yogic techniques such as breathwork, specific asanas (yoga postures) as well as rhythm of the practice to soothe our nervous system, balance the Vata dosha 

  • Ayurvedic practices to balance Vata including foods, teas, and Facial marma massage 

  • Importance of rest and slowing down  

  • Relaxation with sound / Yoga Nidra

We trust that after this workshop, you will have a better understanding of your body, how it functions and also the possible imbalances that you might encounter in your daily life. We also feel confident that after this workshop you will be able to incorporate some of the tools into your daily routine and feel empowered to take more intentional actions that balances your Vata dosha and the nervous system.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Your own mat, cushion and a blanket to stay warm 

  • Wear comfortable clothes

  • A journal for taking notes and writing down reflections

  • An open mind 

  • Yourself as you are!  

WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO:

  • The functions of the Nervous System

  • Discover Vata dosha: explain how Vata dosha manifests in the body and the mind, its functions, imbalances and what causes imbalances and what to do to bring it back to balance

WHAT IS YOGA ?

Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word "yuj" meaning "to join", "to yoke", to "unite". Yoga aims to help us reach union between the body and the mind. 

We can practise yoga on several levels including yoga asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation as well as ethical guidelines for interacting with yourself and others. 

Practising yoga impacts our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Yoga has a positive impact on the functioning of all the organs in our body and all of the systems in our body. It also calms the mind and helps us develop more self-awareness and self-knowledge. Yoga can also serve us as a spiritual practice and a path to connecting to the devine/higher self/ universal consciousness.   

WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

Ayurveda is one of the oldest and time-tested medical systems that views each person as an individual with a unique body & mind constitution. It originates from India and it translates from Sanskrit as “the knowledge of life”. 

In essence, Ayurveda is all about natural healing, true connection with self and nature, inner balance, and living your dharma (purpose) providing joy and fulfilment. It offers a wealth of tools & practices to reverse health issues, but it also empowers everyone to experience long-term health and well-being through healthy, conscious choices.
