Ayurveda in Connecticut: A Deep Introduction to Living Ayurveda, Introductory Ayurvedic Course

Hartford, Connecticut (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
 

Status and development of Ayurveda in Canada

When the early Yogi's left India to travel around the world, some of them landed Canada. Among them was Swami Vishnu Devananda, a disciple of Swami Sivananda. With a directive from his teach to spread the teachings of Yoga to the West, Swami Vishnu as he was known, did just that. While his teachings has since traveled around the world, the headquarters of his organization is in Val Morin, Quebec.

Yoga Nidra has been rapidly growing in popularity as a practice for deep relaxation.  While it is effective for this purpose, Yoga Nidra is much more than a form of progressive relaxation. Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness.

Keys to balance Kapha dosha (Ayurveda)

Central to Ayurveda is the concept of the 5 elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth), all of which are present in the universe as well as in the human body – the human body, according to Ayurveda, is viewed as the microcosm of the macrocosm that is this universe.

These elements combine to form the constitutional makeup of our bodies – known as ‘doshas’ or bodily humors. These are Vata = Air & Ether, Pitta = Fire & Water and Kapha = Earth + Water.
