Introduction to Ayurveda: A Sister Science to Yoga

Presented by Sue Park, Thai Yoga Therapist, Yoga Teacher Trainer

Illness and stress related disorders are increasing worldwide. Science has shown the benefits of a mind-body approach in reducing stress and illness.  Ayurveda is a natural healing system that dates back 5000-years. The purpose of Ayurveda is to heal and maintain the quality and longevity of life, naturally, through a healthy lifestyle. Ayurveda offers a understanding of the uniqueness of each individual and believes that prevention through movement, meditation, and diet is the key to reducing stress and illness.

This workshop is an introduction to Ayurveda.  Sue will help you determine your Ayurvedic mind-body type (dosha) and how to maintain  a state of health by developing a lifestyle that supports your unique type.  The last hour of the workshop will be devoted to an yoga practice designed specifically for this Ayurvedic workshop.

About Radiant Child Yoga (RCY)
The vision of Radiant Child is to create a world of peace through the union of yoga and children. The Radiant Child is the child who is self-aware, who honors the spirit of all, and is naturally dedicated to creating a world of peace. Yoga is a holistic, practical tool toward that end.

RCY was founded by Shakta Khalsa, E-RYT 500, AMS Montessori educator, and published author, an internationally recognized teacher of yoga for both adults and children, having taught extensively at conferences and gatherings for over four decades. As one of the leading founders of the children’s movement, Shakta developed the Radiant Child Yoga training program in 1999. Since that time, she has trained a select few RCY Facilitators (including Dr. Tracy), who along with Shakta, have taught thousands of yoga teachers, school teachers, therapists, parents and grandparents in the art of children’s yoga.

This workshop is a just a sample of the Radiant Child Yoga training. The full training will be offered at Mindful Child Aerial Yoga this October. Please see our “Teacher Training” page on our website for more information.
