Ayurveda for the Winter

Sunday, September 21st, 2014


The term Ayurveda is derived from two Sanskrit words: ‘ayus’ meaning life and ‘vid’ meaning knowledge. The “science of life”, Ayurveda, is increasingly popular the world over, as people look for alternatives to allopathic care.

The Ayurvedic teachings are very broad-ranging, providing valuable insights into all medical matters; mental as well as physical. It is a deep yet very practical science.

Living in the UK, winters can be cold and bitter. Many of us cannot wait until spring blossoms and temperatures begin to rise again. With winter fast-approaching, this session will aim at providing some helpful insights into how to deal with the cold and everything that comes with it.
