The quest for health is often advertised as easy, but in practice is found to be complex. Especially in times when clarity and truth are difficult to discern, Āyurveda provides methods for clear and personalized action that can lead to simplicity, groundedness, and choice. Health is a dynamic experience that is founded on reliable digestion, clear thinking, and decreased suffering. Though everyone's experience of balance is personal, there are a few things everyone can do to increase the potency of their digestion, learn how to make choices that are good for their unique needs - and thus be liberated from fads. This permits the experience of what health actually is in the body and mind. In this workshop, we will cover what health is from the Āyurvedic lens - including the signs of its presence and absence. We will also examine how a person can move closer to health by observing the qualities present in the foods, drinks, and activities they consume. The end result will be a more cogent understanding of health and a simple, engaging means to get there. The entirety of this lecture will be supported by textual references from the Brhat Trayi. This mode of teaching and study empowers all attendees to discover more information from primary source resources, leaving speculation and doubt behind.

Sera has been a lifetime student and accomplished teacher of Yoga and Ayurveda. She has been blessed with teachers who have searched classically for the patterns of the Universe and Spirit. Her studies and experiences in the realms of Yoga, Mantra, and Ayurveda all serve to assist in increasing her depth, sensitivity, and simplicity in ways she lives and practices. Her primary source training has allowed her to be a dynamic teacher and facilitator of the modern age. She is fluent in human physical and psychological mechanics and thus can adjust sequences, lectures, and treatment plans rapidly to accommodate individuals' present needs. In classes we will focus on the science behind the relationships between the body, the mind, and their bridges. We will be most observant of the flow of prana – how and where it moves and does not move in posture and how it relates – or does not – with consciousness. Using the paradigms of Ha-tha Yoga and Ayurveda we will explore our capacity to be both strong and flexible, moving and still, Ha and Tha, and of course, migrate in the direction of steady appreciation and holistic awareness. My goal is to contextualize things that are often taught in broad strokes without context. From this place, it is possible to go deep instead of only wide. When we are aware of context our work is more personalized and profound and thus the impact we have on the people with whom we work will be that much more powerful and in service. By studying and/or working with me you will gain a personal understanding of Yoga and Ayurveda in a way that is usable, approachable, and Classically based.
