The goal of Ayurveda is to help people to get healthy, stay healthy, and live productive, meaningful lives, as defined by the individual. Some people come to Ayurveda in order to improve their lives without focusing on a specific problem. In order to solve any given life problem, be it physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional, it is most effective to look deeper for the root causes of the problem.
Lifestyle, including the timing and patterns of eating, choice of food, the balance of rest and activity, bedtime, etc. has a huge impact on health and the balance of mind and body.
Detailed nutrition/eating/diet plans may be suggested which include how many times a week it would be ideal for a person to eat any given item.
Diet plans can be very precise, geared towards nourishing your given your Prakriti (constitution) and vikriti (current imbalance). This yields vastly better results than generic dosha diets
Many illnesses have emotional roots and techniques may be suggested for individuals to use at home to help themselves. Suggestions are made to help people discover for themselves their own best life-path or dharma. Everything we do affects our balance of elements and doshas.
Ayurvedic/Astrological Wellness and Exercise Consultation
With Gary O’Toole: Specific reading to combine astrology, fitness, and lifestyle practices in order to maximize health and growth of inner vitality and inner wealth.
Ayurvedic/Astrological Consultations impart an empowered view of your life cycles, patterns, and trends; drawing forth a map which reflects your authentic identity, healing potentiality, and appropriate treatment plan, based on your unique mind-body type and any imbalances being experienced at present – or those likely to be experienced in the future without observing remedial measures.
Astro-Yoga Astrological Reading
With Barry Rosen/staff
Work with a live instructor on a personal yoga practice that strengthens your individual needs and supports your personal development as suggested by your natal chart and specific for the period and transits that you are going through.
In ancient times Vedic astrology and hatha yoga were very connected and more integrated as part of one system. It is fairly well accepted that certain postures support the health and vitality of specific organs and these are also connected to our emotions and mental well-being.
The focus will be on postures that will strengthen benefic planets that are weak in the chart as well as postures that will calm down or balance malefic planets that are affecting your well-being. For those familiar with yoga, a light 30-minute reading can suffice whereas those wanting a personal demonstration of postures will require a longer session with a staff member or Barry. A specific set of positions will be prescribed. Major transits and periods may also warrant specific postures for different times of the year and these can change over time.
Of course, astrology is not a substitute for legal, medical, or psychological advice, so please consult with a licensed professional in these matters.
