“The root cause of disease is not listening to the body. Intelligence is the flow of awareness that tells us what we should do and should not do.” – Dr. Vasant Lad
Crow Collection Wellness Advisor Sapna Punjabi-Gupta presents a four-week series offering ancient practices relevant for the modern times. In this series, Sapna will introduce the art of daily healing through Dinacharya or Ayurvedic daily routines. Dinacharya is noticing the rhythms of our body and acting with awareness to maintain balance. It has many lasting benefits and offers a great way to power up one’s day. Join Sapna as she shares simple Ayurvedic daily self-care practices through food, exercise, mantra, and meditation to help establish balance and bring radical changes in our body, mind, and consciousness.
The Art of Aligning Internal Bio-Rhythms with Rhythms of Nature
Wednesday, September 6 at noon
Ayurveda sees everything in the universe, including human beings, as composed of five great elements—space, air, fire, water, and earth—which combine to give rise to three bio-physical forces (doshas) that are present in everybody and everything. Learn about the natural rhythms of the elements and the doshas in the environment, and use the awareness to align one’s own physiology and mindfulness. DON’T miss this first lecture of the series.
