         Intro to Ayurveda

              (FREE LECTURE!)

              with Kimber Hyatt

               Sunday, November 19th

               5:30 pm -7:00 pm

               @ Tonic Herb Shop

                    Join us for an intimate discussion led by Kimber Hyatt, Ayurvedic practitioner, to learn about this ancient science of life and longevity. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian tradition of medicine, estimated to be more than 5,000 years old. It teaches that the Universe and everything in it is made up of the five elements: ether, air, fire, water and earth. As humans, we are governed by the same laws of nature. When we harmonize with the natural daily and seasonal rhythms, then we maintain balance and health.

Together in this event, we will discuss the basic principles of Ayurveda. We will develop an understanding of how the elements present themselves in the body, as well as what we can do to keep them in balance day-to- day, and throughout the changing seasons, to maintain optimal health.
