Understanding Ahara: Helping Us to Heal

Ayurveda Workshop
with Aimee Forsberg
Sunday, August 13, 3-4:30pm

Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, blossoming from an ancient set of texts called the Vedas. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life. Ayurveda is yoga’s sister science, and when combined, results in optimal holistic health and well-being.

Ayurveda defines ahara as anything we take in to nourish our body and our mind. Throughout the day, we eat, we drink, we breathe, and we absorb images and other sensory inputs. What if we can be mindful about these inputs and practice preventative wellnes? Awareness around ahara, along with good sleep habits and a yoga practice can be the foundation for health. Come learn more about how to understand ahara and how it can help us to heal.
