Dosha Yoga (L2)
Dosha Yoga is yoga approached from an ayurvedic perspective. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healthcare system that translates from Sanskrit as the ‘science of life’. Understanding that all matter and energy in the world is combination of the 5 elements (earth, wind, fire, water & ether), Ayurveda further breaks down these elements into 3 categories or Dosha’s:
By developing an awareness of the doshas and how we move naturally in the world with them, we may come to a deeper interaction within ourselves and the world. Dosha yoga seeks to develop your ability to find optimum balance in mind-body-spirit by focusing on a particular dosha, a combination of doshas or by specially tailoring class to the particular season, day, collective Prakruti or energy present. Come to class expecting to:
-Deepen one’s understand and experience of the doshas
-Recieve all the benefits of a standard yoga class
-Learn more about your particular energetics and of others
-Find a deeper sense of peace, balance and union
