A Weekend Introduction to Ayurveda & Yoga
Vijaya Stern, Ayurvedic naturopath
Barbra Brady, Certified Level II ParaYoga Teacher
Saturday & Sunday, July 27-28, 2013
Yoga Community, Sonoma
I am deeply honored to co-lead an introduction to Ayurveda and Yoga with Vijaya Stern, one of the most respected Ayurvedic specialists in the country!
In this 10-hour workshop Vijaya will offer a discovery of the five elements, the five senses, and a healthy lifestyle the Ayurvedic way. This is not just theory time! Each session I will lead a yoga practice that illustrates the depth of Ayurveda. Through asana, breath, mantra, meditation and visualization we will experience yoga as a technique to unblock, contain, and channel our energy, or prana.
Beyond just doing poses, these practices are a vehicle designed and sequenced as a doorway to consciousness. Ayurvedic yoga is profound and far-reaching, with an alchemy and purpose that leads us toward self-mastery and balanced energy.
There’s more! Vijaya and I will be offering a full “curriculum” this fall/winter in a six-month immersion. This is your chance to fully explore the realms of the 5000 year-old wisdom and joy of yoga and its sister science right here in Sonoma!
