The workshops in this immersion will be focused on the principles of health through Yoga and Ayurveda. Our guest speaker Kelly Phillips from A Bountiful Life and an Ayurvedic Practitioner will share with us the key points of this science.  Ayurvedic medicine is entirely holistic. Its adherents strive to create harmony between the body, mind, and spirit, maintaining that this balance prevents illness, treats acute conditions, and contributes to a long and healthy life.  Ayurveda views each person as unique with individual needs. We may all be human but we have slightly different physiologies and emotional tendencies. Ayurveda teaches that for this reason, each person's path toward optimal health is also unique.

What is Ayurveda ?
