An Introduction to Ayurveda, Yoga and the 20 Gunas


The origins of both Ayurveda and Yoga stretch back over 5000 years ago. Ayurveda being one of the oldest sciences for healing; yoga the oldest spiritual discipline that harmonizes mind and body. Both practices striving for the same outcome, health and balance in body, mind and spirit. Accordingly, it only makes sense that when practicing yoga, we incorporate the age old tools of Ayurveda into our practice.

 In this workshop, you will discover the connection between Ayurveda and Yoga as it relates to Yoga practice. How your particular constitution: vata, pitta, kapha and or a combination of each, plays a role in determining which type of yoga practice is best for you. Not only taking your constitution into account but also the current season and time of day.

 We will dive deep into the 20 gunas or qualities that make up each constitution coming to an understanding how these gunas show up on our yoga mats, in the foods we eat, the way we interact with people and so much more!

Once your tool box is full, you will have the chance to fully immerse yourself in a seasonal ayurvedic yoga practice that will focus on balancing Vata, the predominant winter constitution. Practice will be a slow nourishing flow followed by grounding asana, pranayama and savasana.

 By the end of this workshop, you will know your particular constitution as it relates to your gunas, become familiar with practicing yoga according to your constitution and have the tools to balance your particular qualities both “On and Off” the Yoga Mat!
