The three 60-minute Vipassana Vinyasa workshops will give enough time to observe the connection between our consciousness and parasympathetic system.
Vagus Nerve Awarenesswakeup the Chakra system, hence benefitting your home practice after the workshop.
Day 1 will cover the Ayurvedic concept of the three doshas. These are believed to be the three substances that define every person makeup. During the Ayurvedic Nutrition workshop you will be able to work out your own main dosha. Knowing your dosha can help you to follow Ayurvedic principles to live a healthier, more balanced life. During lunch, you will be able to try dosha-specific dishes. Dr George will also compare how modern nutrition knowledge relates to the effects of these dietary suggestions.
