Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing that originated over 5000 years ago in India and is still practiced there today. This sister science to yoga, literally translated as the 'science of life' provides practical tools, using lifestyle and dietary practices as medicine, to bring us to our optimal state of health and wellbeing. Taking into account that each individual person is unique, each treatment plan designed is specific to that person's unique constitution. A holistic approach to healing, Ayurveda treats mind, body and spirit to bring each person back to her natural state of balance and ease.
In this workshop, you will gain knowledge and insight into the wisdom of this ancient health system and some of its practices, an introduction to herbalism and making herbal formulas, and will learn how to make solar-infused herbal oils to take home with you! In this hands-on experiential workshop, you will learn how to formulate herbal blends to infuse into oils that have specific healing actions on the body. Using the sun to infuse the active compounds of the herbs to create a medicated oil, the oil can then be used for a multitude of purposes – self-oil massage, cooking, or to make lips balms or salves for skin care!
