Introduction to Ayurveda With Michael Macdonald
10.00am on Saturday 22 May in the Lounge
Mount Eden Village Centre, 449 Mount Eden Road
This workshop will introduce you to the basic principles of Ayurveda. The word “Ayur” comes from the Sanskrit word “Ayuh” meaning life and “Veda” can be translated as wisdom or knowledge. So basically, Ayurveda means “the knowledge of life”. In its essence Ayurveda provides you with the knowledge of who you are and how to live your life in harmony. For this you need to understand your own mind-body personality (dosha) and Ayurveda gives you the key to this understanding as well as providing the personal tools to live a balanced and fulfilled lifestyle.
For Michael Macdonald, therapist at Planet Ayurveda, a transforming trip to India in the early 1990’s sparked his interest in Vedic philosophy, particularly Yoga & Ayurveda. An experienced therapist along with a yoga practitioner for 15 years, he is a graduate of Australasian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies.
