What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old healing tradition originating in India. It is the sister science to yoga or the medical side of yoga.  Ayurveda uses yoga, diet, and herbal formulas to bring wellness to an individual’s entire well-being. Ayurveda treats the individual as a whole and assists in maintaining overall health.

What are Doshas?

The doshas are the three Ayurvedic body/mind types. They are: vata, pitta, and kapha. We have all three of the doshas in our physiology, just in different proportions. Everyone’s dosha is unique and personal; it is like a fingerprint. Each dosha is made up of one or two of the five basic elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth , and gives us insight into the tendencies of our bodies (physically, mentally, and emotionally). You can learn more about the qualities by clicking here.

How do I know which class to take?

You can always take any class you want, but an Ayurvedic dosha test can give you insight to your prakruiti (your dominant dosha) and which class will best assist you in cultivating balance. For a more accurate dosha assessment, book an appointment with one of our Ayurvedic Counselors. 

Do I have to know about Ayurveda to join the class?

Nope, that’s what we’re here for!

How is Ayurveda Yoga different than other Yoga classes?

You will notice that the class for your dosha is most likely the opposite of what you would naturally be drawn to.  Ayurveda believes like increases like; therefore,  each class type is designed to pacify imbalances caused by the qualities of that particular dosha. For example, if you are vata dominant, you are probably someone that is always doing something and you have a difficult time turning off your mind. Our vata balancing class is designed to bring in the opposite qualities of vata’s moving energy. It is intended to help you slow down and increase focus.

Do you have showers?

We do not, but we do have two restrooms.

I am recovering from an injury can I still join the class?

Yes. In all of our classes, we encourage you to listen to your body, take the time you need to move in and out of postures, and modify as needed. You are always welcome to raise your hand and ask your teacher for help and/or modifications. Our slower paced classes are: Vata Balancing and Pitta Balancing.

Do I need to reserve classes in advance?

You don’t have to, but it ensures that you have a spot upon arrival.

What if I am late?

Unfortunately, if you are late you will not be able to attend the class, as we do lock our door to ensure the safety of our students and their belongings during class times.  Out of respect for the practice and the time of our students, we start and end all classes on time.  Please be sure to arrive at least a few minutes early.

Do I need to reserve workshops in advance?

Yes, as a head count is often needed for the teacher to properly plan their event or workshop.
