Rasayana Chikitsa or Rejuvenation Therapy is a very exciting area of Ayurveda that relates to many aspects of our lives. The quest for eternal youth is something that is perhaps has old as myth itself. We all have that instinct innately within us, perhaps because we fear death or perhaps we want to celebrate life for as long as we can.
In Yoga, it is said that what we are really seeking is to connect with our Eternal Self which can only really happen through long practice and the Grace of the divine. Ayurveda however, is much more practical that that. Ayurveda has gone to pains to explore exactly how we can maintain health and longevity by looking at the foods we eat and the way we live.
Rasayana is a vast and complicated area of Ayurveda that involves many layers but in this workshop we will explore some of the simplest every day techniques including practices discussed in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and some other ideas that I have encountered in other systems like Taoism and Chinese Medicine.
This workshop is for any serious student of Yoga. I will be revising the basic principles of Ayurveda in the morning but some awareness of these principles will be an advantage as I will not have enough time to build the ground work in detail and do this subject justice. Discover Rasayana and be inspired.
Rasayana is one of the most important aspects of Ayurveda. The word means Rejuvenation and refers to a wide variety of foods, techniques and protocols that are designed to help us overcome disease, strengthen our tissues and organs and ultimately, to live longer. In this workshop you will become familiar with the practices related to rasayana, the use of herbs and common foods and the role of yoga practice in improving health and vitality.
