Ayurveda Yoga  Annapurna

No Class May 8 & 15

Ayurveda is an ancient sister science to yoga. Ayurveda recognizes three forms of pranic or life energy as the basis for health and disease for all people. These are the three doshas (biological humors): Vata (air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water). Both yoga and Ayurveda reflect the Vedic idea that we must live according to our unique nature and its capacities. The type of asana and meditation that is beneficial for one person may prove disharmonious to another. 

Join Annapurna's class and learn how the asanas function for each dosha.

Join Annapurna at Lumeria Maui, weekly

Time: Wednesdays, 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Location: Yoga Classroom

"Awareness is boundless. Awareness has freedom."

Living is learning; learning is loving.

Living, loving, and learning go together. 

Learning is sharing together. Exploring together. Investigating together.

Learning is sacred.

Put the mind and heart in the subject of learning.

Learning is loving."

Philosophy

Balance is everything! 

Being in tune with nature is the key to finding balance in our daily lives. When fall comes, we put on our coats and hunker down for the cold months ahead. Some people gather apples in the orchards, storing applesauce in jars. When the temperatures and the seasons change, we begin to tune into our natural biorhythms of how our body responds to the outside world. We are nature itself. 

Health and wellbeing is our birthright. When we get out of balance, like putting on too much weight, we typically eat less and exercise more. This is a well-known fact about finding balance with body weight. However, some people have more trouble than others with this idea, as well as implementing it because of factors that Ayurveda can give us clarity on.

Svastha

Sanskrit for 'health,' Svastha is an Ayurvedic term for the state of being in which body, mind, soul, and senses are in blissful equilibrium. Svastha is determined primarily by assessing the balance between the three doshas (functional energies), the seven dhatus (bodily tissues), Agni (digestive fire), and the pathways of elimination.

As two Sanskrit roots: swa (self) and stha (abide). It can be understood as a self-abiding state in which body and mind are at ease in natural equilibrium. In Ayurveda, health is determined not only by the physical body; mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic tendencies must also be considered. 

An individual must have the following qualities to achieve Svastha:

  • An established sense of Self
  • Balance between the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, ¬†and Kapha
  • Properly formed dhatus
  • Efficient elimination of malas (waste products)
  • Well-functioning bodily processes
  • A blissful mind, soul, and senses

As such, the Ayurvedic perspective on health is truly holistic, treating body, mind, spirit, and senses as inextricably interconnected. Ayurvedic treatments, take all of these aspects into account when working towards Svastha.


 

One who has optimal musculature and build, whose senses are sharp and receptive, one who can withstand sickness with ease and tolerate hunger, thirst, excessive sun, cold, and exercise, whose food digests and assimilates optimally, and who develops optimal physical stature is considered

'Svastha.'

"From the moment you meet her, Annapurna radiates a joy and warmth that can truly be felt. Her instructions are always clear and precise. She is artistic and concise with her words. I always enjoy morning sadhana sessions with Annapurna because she is simple and authentic, and I feel deeply calm and at ease after each session. The element of her teaching style that I admire most is the grace with which she leads the class to go beyond the physical body and connect with the higher part of your being through the breath."

Honeymooners on Maui!

Annapurna, thank you so much for that experience yesterday. 

It was restorative individually and a great bonding/connecting point during the guided meditation. I like t the roots of our partnership and the tools we can access and continue to build. 

You have a gift for creating that safe/open space for couples. Best of luck moving and grooving on Maui ūüôŹūüėä

"I had a consultation with Annapurna, and I was impressed by her passion, depth of knowledge, and caring nature. I'm truly grateful for the experience! I have spent nearly three decades going from one doctor to another, seeking answers and treatment for chronic health problems without any success. In just one consultation, Annapurna gave me information and advice about the cause of it for that made sense. Rather than taking prescription drugs with side effects that create new health problems, Ayurvedic medicine gave me a completely natural "prescription" to restore balance and harmony within my body for my particular body type."

"Restorative yoga with Annapurna was more healing than I could have ever imagined. After Annapurna's Restorative Chakra class, I woke up seeing a beautiful violet light. It was a unique experience, and I felt that it restored my chakras to their fullest potential. Annapurna's warm and nurturing presence in Restorative yoga class inspired me to get certified in Restorative Yoga Teacher Training, so that I could facilitate the divine healing that was gifted to me."
