Intro to the ayurvedic Life Sciences

with Noël Graupner

Wednesday - October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and November 7th
7-9pm
Tribeca - Small Ting
$40 drop-in, $200 for all six courses

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning “life knowledge.” It is the name of the world's oldest, most comprehensive health system, which offers unique insight into creating balance among all facets of wellness — physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual — using tools such as diet, plant remedies, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, breath work, color, and aromatherapy to establish harmony between body, mind, and the natural world.

Balance in mind and body within the context of nature is divine natural order, according to Ayurveda. Action taken to cultivate cooperation between mind and body and the environment yields the symptoms of health that lay the foundation for true happiness and longevity. As preventative wellness, Ayurveda is behavioral medicine at its finest, making it a science of personal responsibility — one which trains you first intellectually, then intuitively, to make intelligent decisions. This compact, six-session course will familiarize you with the principles of Ayurveda that teach how to identify the organization of your unique mind/body type, then interpret the information entering your system through your senses. The goal of this course is to provide a foundation for understanding how your physiology and psychology work together, and how to use the things you are engaging with each day, knowingly and unknowingly, through environment, society, lifestyle, and diet, as tools to cultivate the state of body and state of mind of your own choosing.

Each class will be a combination of lecture and group discussion. See class descriptions below. Classes may be taken individually or as a course. Handouts will be given and taking notes will be encouraged; light assignments (challenges!) will be given between classes. Classes are two hours and will begin promptly at 7 pm. 

Class Topics

October 3: History and Modern Application of Ayurveda: Five Elements + Three Doshas

Ayurveda shines in its ability to distill a host of complex inputs and circumstances (including the maladies of imbalance or disease) into an elegantly simple collection of qualitative patterns. Being able to identify qualities in all things — material and nonmaterial — will help to illuminate a clear path to creating a strategy for your decision-making to build vitality and health. In this class, we will set a foundation to approach Vedic philosophy by identifying Ayurveda's roots in Samkyha philosophy, describing the building blocks of Nature and their qualities, and how these building blocks merge to form the Doshic bioenergetics used for the body/mind typing that will help make applying Ayurvedic theory practical to you. Class will end with a quiz to determine your Prakriti, or constitution.

October 10: Six Tastes and Diet for your Dosha

Each taste is an expression of Prana, a universal life/love/evolutionary force, through the form of elemental building blocks of Nature. When one consumes the proper amount of each taste for their particular constitution and/or to heal their imbalance, the body (including mind and consciousness) will respond with the production of healthy tissue and normal physiology. If there is too much or too little of any taste, the body is going to respond with imbalance or disease. In this class, we will explore Ayurvedic taste theory, examining the six tastes — sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent — and identifying how to use them to regulate digestive capacity through anabolic, metabolic, and catabolic means.

October 17: Digestion and Seven Tissue Layers

Ayurvedic wisdom teaches that all disturbances of the body have their root in the digestive system, the gate through which nutrients enter the tissue and travel to individual cells which maintain optimal function of the body. Understanding the digestive system is vital to improve and maintain health. In this class, we will explore the concept of digestion, unpacking the process of taking that which is not you and turning it into you, and it's major player, agni. We will examine how information from sensory inputs (i.e. nutrients) develops into plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nervous tissue, sexual reproductive tissue, and affects immune function (your self-identification mechanism!).

October 24: The Ayurvedic Clock, Part 1: Ritucharya

Eating seasonally is a requisite component of food sadhana practice. The Ayurvedic sciences teach that Mother Nature is serving exactly what our bodies need in accordance with the physical challenges of the environment, mandating seasonal eating practices to promote health of the body, mind, and spirit. Likewise, time of day informs the energetic demands on the human organism. In this class, we will discuss the concepts of Ritucharya (seasonal schedule) to examine how both environment and time inform the type and quantity of food to eat, further reinforcing a theory known as Six Tastes.

October 31: Food Sadhana: Yogic Diet + How to Eat

Ayurveda teaches that the types of foods one ingests have a direct effect on the body and the mind, influencing the consciousness of the consumer. In this class, we will discuss how to approach food energetically by understanding food qualities (sattva, rajas, and tamas), proper sourcing, storage, and preparation of food, touching on vegan and vegetarian vs. animal protein diets. We will discuss how to compose a plate that will support healthy digestion, and discuss why context is more important than content of a meal by learning the Upayogasamstha, or guidelines to healthy eating. More important than what you eat is how you eat!

November 7: The Ayurvedic Clock, Part 2: Dinacharya

To maintain a healthy life free from disease, we need to follow a daily routine, or flow of ritual conduct. The Ayurvedic Rishis (those who outlined the system of Ayurvedic medicine) considered a daily routine to be a stronger healing force than any other medicine! In Sanskrit, the word "din" means "day" and "achar" means "following." In this class, we will learn how to sense and follow the rhythm Mother Nature sets to the day, and how to establish morning, afternoon, and evening dinacharya that honors yourself, your body and mind, and all of creation. You will discover that Ayurveda is actually a verb; it is something to be lived. Every action taken with consciousness will connect you with all that is Divine within you.

SHAMANIC REIKI CIRCLE

with Francesca Valarezo

Random_2.jpg

Saturday, October 20th
1:30-3:30pm
Domino
$45

Shamanic Reiki is the merging of two of the most ancient healing modalities to create harmony in a person's energetic body. Working with Reiki is working with energy. It's simple, safe and easy. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese and is generally translated as universal life force." Practicing means becoming a conduit to allow the universal energy to travel through you so it can be received by another.

Shamanism is one of the oldest forms of spirituality that exists today. Shamans call upon the essential forces of nature such as the winds, sacred plants, smoke, rocks, animals, the elements, rivers and the ocean for healing. In Shamanism, we become connected with mother earth and nature's forces to assist us in our healing journey. It is a true experience of self love.

In this Shamanic Reiki circle we will explore in detail some techniques, rituals and practices as tools for deep healing. The goal is to host the circles at lest 4 times per year as we transition through seasons or for any special cosmic events so that we attune to our intuition and our power to heal.

The Circle consists of:

  • Welcoming ritual - sage to cleanse

  • Deep Relaxation in a restorative posture

  • Hands on Reiki to students

  • Shamanic journey 

  • Sound healing + Elixir

Students will leave feeling renewed, connected to nature and well integrated to their spirituality and higher levels of consciousness.

FASCIA FASCIA FASCIA 101

with Bonnie Cratzer

Fascia.jpg

Saturday, November 4th
3:30-5pm
Chinatown
$30

What is fascia? Basically, it’s the connective tissue. It's a hot topic, but it's hard to put our finger on it. The reason it seems so elusive is that it’s actually hard to define: Is it a 3-D spider web, or plastic wrap, or a tissue matrix, or an electrical energy network, or something else entirely? The fascia’s nature is to take many forms and take on many roles in the body. We will cover the basics about fascia — what it’s made of, and how its health is the key to all of the other systems in the body. Find out how fascia and traditional Chinese medicine link up, and how we can use our movement practice to engage and take care of it.
