Part 1 is the essence of breath work. We understand the 3 body types according to Ayurveda ( Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and we understand some laws of correct breath work approach and we experience how to do everything in a systematic approach. It will bring a sense of calm to the body and the mind and reduce the high emotions and stress.
Part 2 is about diseases of Vata ..the people who have air element dominant in the body according to Ayurveda, suffer more from being cold, having dryness or hair and skin and bones, suffer muscular pain, nervous disorders and so on ….breath work and diet can balance and offset the effects bringing them a much more desirable environment.
Part 3 is about diseases of Pitta …the people who have more fire element dominant, A type personalities, hypertension, acidity problems, inflammation and menstrual irregularities….it also affects oily teenage skin and hormones and is higher in pregnancy, menopause and puberty…..so we can learn again through diet and breath work how to offset the dis-ease …and bring nurturing and ease once more.
Part 4 finally addresses Kapha dosha where people have more earth element present and suffer from fluid retention problems, sluggish digestion, coolness in the body, congestion in the tissues and especially the lungs. In this session we will again address the issues in this body type and give solutions to help with diet change and breath work. Bringing lightness and happier sense of self for these conditions.
