Ayurveda as a natural healing system

How do you make sense of a vast variety of health information that is often contradictory? Ayurveda offers a logical way forward. This traditional natural healing system from India focuses on diet, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and natural therapies, and like a compass it can give you the direction you need to take in your life.

A very fascinating course. What we have learned in just 2 days can certainly transform our lives! Excellent teaching; I'm inspired and empowered to implement this healing science. BRILLIANT!! 

Discover your dosha

In Ayurveda, there are three constitution types or ‘doshas’. Finding your unique constitution gives you a way of developing an effective personal plan to bring you an abundance of health and vitality.


What you will learn about: 

  • background and philosophy of Ayurveda
  • the elements and the doshas
  • how to discover your dosha type
  • how to recognise when your dosha is in balance and when it is not
  • what diet, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and therapies are balancing and rejuvenating for you.
