Yoga & Ayurveda Workshop

My friend and bodywork colleague Bethanie Sand is offering a great workshop I want to share with you:

Yoga and Ayurveda:

Yoga and Ayurveda are considered “sister sciences”, both coming from the wisdom of the Vedas. Once we have determined our Ayurvedic constitution (our Dosha) we can use this knowledge to tailor a yoga practice that is most compatible with our needs. We will determine our Ayurvedic constitution and from there learn about yoga poses, breathing practices and meditation techniques that are best suited for each Dosha.

Please join us Saturday, Jan.12, 2008 from 2-4:30pm; $40
NW Community Yoga Studio: 701 NW 70th St. in Ballard

Contact Bethanie at: (206) 949-8442 for more information or to register.

Hi Sue ~

I just conferred with Bethanie and she said that you do not need to have any knowledge of yoga, but that you will be doing physical poses, breath practices and meditation for each of the Doshas, so you should come prepared to do some gentle yoga (dress for movement).

Hope this helps!
