Workshops

Ayurvedic Guide for Healthy Living: An overview of Ayurveda. Ayurvedic lifestyle leaves you energized, well rested, managing your weight and centered. Learn the science of Ayurveda, the five elements and formation of the dosas (the intelligence that directs your bodily functions). By the end of the workshop you will have an understanding of your constitution (dosa) and the relationship between you and nature.

Health and Beauty: Explore the topics of general beauty routines, beauty tips and remedies for specific dosahs, and the inner aspects of beauty. Explore what beauty secrets nature has to offer.

Ayurveda for Women: Ayurveda aims to help women find and keep their creative energies flowing. It teaches us to begin the search for health by looking within ourselves and using the powers we possess to self-heal. This workshop is designed to provide ancient wisdom and its application from menarche through menopause. Topics include Life’s 5 Foundation Principles, Understanding Your Unique Constitution, the Effects of Stress and Hormones on health, and Relieving Menstrual and Menopausal Discomforts.

Healthy Eating for the Seasons: A fundamental Ayurvedic teaching is, “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.” Food plays a prominent role in well being, so it important to eat the right foods in order to be healthy. Ayurveda, the ancient science of life, explains how to help individuals lose excess pounds, maintain ideal weight, generate energy, relieve bouts of anxiety and worry, and improve memory by clearing mental fog. This workshop offers the teachings behind choosing to eat seasonal foods and the impact time of day has on digestion. In addition, by understanding the role of digestion, the six tastes and culinary spices have on health, one can plan an individualized diet that supports their unique constitution and find that healing state of being.

Note: Above workshops can be adapted for school age children and can be offered during school or after school hours.

Stress Reduction for Teens

American teens report experiences with stress that follow a similar pattern as adults, according to a survey released in 2014 by the American Psychological Association (APA). Stress causes feelings of being overwhelmed, exhaustion through the day, inability to sleep at night, and although not sick, just not feeling right. This informative program is designed to empower teens to take charge of their health by practicing yoga, meditation and breathing activities. The tools offered include self care tips, offer immediate and long term relief, do not have physical or time requirements and can be practiced anytime, anywhere. Designed for schools and based on Ayurvedic teachings, Stress Reduction for Teens has been received by Queensbury High School and Future Business Leaders of America.

You will be coached to follow Dr. John Douillard’s (lifepsa.com) Ayurvedic Weight Loss Plan. Following an Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle leaves you energized, well rested, managing your weight and centered.

Pranayama at Adirondack AYurveda

Pranayama & Meditation

– When you practice pranayama you are controlling your breath and the flow of life force-energy.
– When you meditate you observe your mind and let your thoughts flow by.

Practicing pranayama (breathing exercises) has many healing benefits. It cleanses organs, brings joy and bliss, and enhances energy. Meditation brings awareness and order to life. Yoga postures (asanas) bring balance. When you learn how to practice all three, intelligence awakens, leading to happiness and creativity. There are many benefits, a few of which are the reduction of stress and blood pressure and the increase of focus and clarity.

When you practice pranayama, yoga and meditation you are strengthening connections that maintain cellular health and longevity.

Body, senses, mind and soul are the four main components of Life; without their constant connection life cannot exist.
