Join Balarama Chandra Das for an introduction to Ayurveda – a holistic medicinal practice grounded in the physics of the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether). Balarama will present a brief lecture on Ayurvedic practices and answer general questions about alternative healthcare, diet and lifestyle. Attendees will also learn simple guided meditation, practice Pranayama breathing techniques and discover their Dosha (body and mind type).
