Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine, dating back over 5,000 years to ancient India. It is the science of living in harmony with nature. In Sanskrit, ayur- means life and -veda means knowledge. Ayurveda utilizes various therapies including yoga, diet, massage and herbal preparations to bring balance and harmony to the body, mind and soul. It is a truly holistic approach to achieving and maintaining that balance.
We offer traditional Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments including abhyanga massage, shirodhara and swedana (aromatherapy steam). We also have an Ayurvedic Weight Management jump-start program to help you begin your weight loss journey back to a healthy body.
In this yoga tradition, students learn at their own pace in small groups with assistance and guidance of a primary
teacher. In this way, students develop their practice at a pace appropriate for their own development. This allows the teacher to provide very specific guidance tailored to each student's individual practice.
NEW STUDENTS: Please call/email ahead to reserve a space in class.
