In ancient India, people discovered that humans were not born with user manuals, but that it became possible to sustain longevity through the science and study of life which is commonly known as Ayurveda. As a native Indian, I remember my grandparents, aunts and uncles unconsciously followed the wisdom of Ayurveda which suggests that knowing thyself; emotionally, physically and spiritually brings tranquility and happiness.
Ayurveda suggest that our main constitution also known by the Sanskrit word “Dosha” is derived from nature. An individual’s fundamental character is based on the nature of air “vata”, or “pitta” sun, or “kapha” earth and water. All individuals have all three constitution and the majority of individuals have a single dosha that rules their way of life with the mild presence of the others. Few individuals have known to be tri-doshic where all three constitution reside in harmony to navigate their lives.
In this webinar you will discover your dominant dosha and what it does it mean for you to create a vision for a balanced physical, emotional and spiritual life for yourself
