Ayurveda for Healthy Digestion
Time : 1:00 PM
Join Perry Macdonald for the second workshop in our series on Ayurveda.
Learn why your digestion is the centre of your health and why Ayurveda would go as far to say that poor digestion is the precursor to every disease.
Delve into Ayurvedic concepts:
- Food as medicine and food as poison
- Important concepts of Ama and Agni in Ayurveda
- The 4 types of digestion – what is your tendency?
- Tips on what can be useful to enhance good gut health.
The workshop will include an informative talk, a 45-minute yoga asana practice to enhance digestion followed by pranayama and meditation.
Saturday 31 October 1-3pm
