 Ayurvedic medicine is a 5,000 year old system of healing that originated in ancient India. In Sanskrit, ayur means life or living, and veda means knowledge, so Ayurveda has been defined as the “knowledge of living” or the “science of longevity.”  It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goals are to promote good health and alleviate disease. During this retreat you will have a general overview of the foundations of Ayurveda, discover your unique constitution, and learn how to apply the the tools of Ayurvedic wisdom to your daily life.
