Alan and Sarah are going to be in NYC! Join Alan, Sarah and Mona for a one day ISHTA Ayurveda Retreat at our new home base in NYC.
Ayurveda is one of the three main pillars of ISHTA Yoga and is reflected in the individualized approach ISHTA takes to the practice. In Ayurveda we say we are made up of five elements ; earth, water, fire, air and space. Disease is caused when due to the stresses of life, the mix of these elements is out of balance from what we were born with. At ISHTA we learn how to recognize our own imbalances and individualize our practice to help bring us back into balance.
Mona will begin the day with an Ayurveda and Asana Practice which will also integrate pranayama, to help you recognize your own dosha imbalances and to begin the process of rebalancing the elements using asana and pranayama. The practice will be followed by a short Q&A on how to individualize your practice.
Alan will then provide a deeper understanding of ISHTA’s unique approach to Ayurveda centered around rebalancing the subtle body. He will discuss diagnosing imbalances through pulse readings and the importance of meditation, marma, kriya and mantra as tools emphasized at ISHTA to find balance.
For an additional $125, Alan will offer 20 minute private sessions throughout the afternoon where he will read pulse and give personalized mantra.
We will then have a special Ayurvedic lunch at the studio.
After lunch, Sarah will discuss how to make healthy lifestyle choices based on your dosha including diet, movement, and emotional well being.This will be followed by a meditation practice with Sarah to balance the elements.
The day will end with a Q &A with Alan.
July 1, 9 am – 4 pm | Full Day: $195
