Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy at the Sivananda Yoga Camp by Dr. Marc Halpern

The journey begins at the airport in Montreal. That's when you realize that you are indeed in another country. The signs are in French and English. In the airport, most people speak both languages but more than a few do not speak English fluently and the vast majority speak English with a strong French accent. I've been taking this trip annually now for 10 years of so. I never learned the language. Just saying that makes me feel like a stereotypical arrogant American. Of course, we're all Americans aren't we, both in the North and in the South.

Ayurvedic Self-Massage - Abhyanga

Self-massage = Self-Love. There is no greater expression of self-love than lovingly anointing ourselves from head to toe with warm oil – this practice is called abhyanga. The Sanskrit word Sneha can be translated as both “oil” and “love”. It is believed that the effects of abhyanga are similar to those received when one is saturated with love. Like the experience of being loved, abhyanga can give a deep feeling of stability and warmth.

One Small Change, One Step at a Time

 BY DR MARC HALPERN - CAL COLLEGE OF AYURVEDA

Often the path to health and wellness seems daunting. If you were to look at a list of how many things you could do to improve our health and well-being, the thought of implementing all of them could make you sick!
