I've been doing some more research into Body Types and the Doshas and wanted to share some of these findings with you so have decided to run a workshop.
The ancient practice of Ayurveda believes we're made up of three different 'body types' that correspond to our physical and personality traits, known as doshas. These are: vata, pitta and kapha, each of which represents two of the five universal elements (a combination of ether, air, fire, water, earth). Ayurvedic philosophies believe we each contain varying proportions of each dosha, generally one or two in dominance. Our naturally dominant dosha does not signify imbalance, but rather how – or who – we are in our most healthy, balanced state. Mind-body health and harmony may be challenged when any of the doshas become aggravated or imbalanced. Identifying your predominant dosha and potential imbalances. Knowing and understanding your primary 'dosha' can benefit you physically, mentally and emotionally as you can tailor your lifestyle, yoga practice, food and sleep to ensure that you are living the fullest life possible.
In this workshop we will identify your primary body type, and look at the best types of Yoga Practice and foods to eat for your body type. It will include analysis and identification of your specific body type, yoga postures to suit your specific body type, breathing practices, meditation and relaxation. Refreshments and handouts will be provided.
Love and light
