Discover Your Dosha to Reach Your Highest Potential

  • Yoga Trek Center 911 South Lombard Avenue Oak Park, IL, 60304 United States (map)

with Amy Dean

Who am I? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since we can remember. And, the idea of who we are evolves over time. Why do you think and behave in certain ways? And, how do you design your yoga lifestyle to become more of the person you want to be, body, mind and spirit? In this interactive workshop, we’ll look to the “Doshas” for guidance.

Saturday, February 4, 2:30-6:30pm

According to the Indian practice of medicine, Ayurveda, which means the science of life, each of us are comprised of three essential elements: Kapha (water), Vata (wind) and Pitta (fire). In most people, one or two of these doshas dominate their physical and mental constitutions and give rise to a particular set of ailments and attitudes. Without a healthy balance between all three doshas, unease erupts and derails our ability to express our highest self.

Since each dosha is designed to express itself, rather than seek balance, we must make a concerted effort to evenly distribute the energy across the energetic spectrum to radiate the full power of our being with a sense of peace and passion. In this interactive workshop, you will:

· Take a personalized assessment to discover your specific dosha

· Engage in a dosha-driven yoga practice to learn how to structure an asana, pranayama and meditation practice to bring equanimity to your body and mind

· Sample foods best suited to balance your dosha so you feel good and your system’s performance is optimal

This workshop is in conjunction with Yoga Trek Teacher Training. Space is limited, register today!
