Sent on: Monday, March 30, 2009 11:01 PM

Food choices are an important part of self care. What we eat becomes not only the fuel for our activities, it also has an effect on our mind giving the basis for both physical & mental well-being.

Through Ayurveda, the Science of Life, we discover fascinating knowledge about living a healthy, lively and balanced lifestyle, according to our own personal needs. This eye-opening course gives us the understanding of the 3  types of body constitution and the 3 states of mind (the 3 gunas) leading to all the physiological and psychological characteristics.

Right foods contribute to raise our level of awareness and elevate the state of our mind which definitely affect the quality of our lives. Ayurveda is a completely natural health system recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Friday, April 17th to Monday, April 20th.
Weekdays 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm.
Sat & Sun 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.
