An Ayurvedic Week With Arun Deva
DATES: January 13-19, 2018
Experience a week of:
Emotional Intelligence: Yoga & Ayurveda Workshop • Vinyasa Krama Yoga • Ayurvedic Consultations
with Master Practitioner, Arun Deva, DASc, AYT
True health is best found in simplicity. Even in our daily living. Each morning is an opportunity for change. When we set an intention, we awaken our will to live a joyous life. When we create a structure, we confront chaos successfully. Like a ship with a deep anchor set in the storm, we embrace our steadfastness.
Ayurveda teaches how to tailor our lives for maximum alignment with health. Yoga gives us the flexibility and the strength that allow us to grow beyond our fears, angers and griefs into creativity, innocence and joy.
Take home the tools that will change your relationship with your life to one of skillful action, stillness and strength.

Rasa Bhāva: Healing the Emotions; Building a Healthy Life With Yoga & Ayurveda
Almost Sold Out
DATES: January 13-14, 2018
How do we understand the emotional body?
The link between the mind and the different organs/systems of the body is well researched and documented in Ayurveda. Now the progressive field of psychotherapy has related our instincts to our reptilian stem, our emotional to the limbic, and the rational to our neo-cortex. In Āyurveda, however, the mind is not restricted to this structure, instead it begins in the heart, reaches downwards into the gut and upwards into the brain. The connections are easy to see as seats of instincts, feelings and sensation/thought. Therefore, all our instincts and our rational thinking revolve around the mediating emotional state. When our emotional state is one of creativity, innocence and joy, we see beauty, feel compassion and instinctually open to universal waves of loving. However, when our emotions are dominated by fear, anger and grief, we become susceptible to the 6 enemies of the mind: lust, rage, greed, jealousy, envy and delusion. And our thinking and functionality begins to operate from these states. In Ayurveda, it is also said that if you wish to conquer these six enemies, there is no better pathway than that of yoga (sattvavajaya cikitsa). After years of personal practice, study and teaching on the relationship of the emotional body to our health and our peace of mind, the results I have gained offer clear, succinct information on the use of these yogic tools. We will do an actual practice to show their effectiveness in transforming fear, anger and grief into creativity, innocence and joy.

Foundational Aspects of Ayurveda and Yoga
Foundational aspects of Ayurveda and Yoga and where they intersect in therapy. Connecting sattva (clarity) rajas (restlessness) and tamas (inertia) to our individual natures of vāta, pitta and kapha: personalizing our emotional healing.
Understanding the Tools of Yoga in Emotional Therapy
We will examine the roles of kriya, vinyāsā, āsana, prānāyāma, mudra, bandhā, japā, dhāranā and dhyāna. That is cleansing breathing, sequencing to place in intelligent postures, awareness breathing, external and internal symbolization, internal locks, chanting, becoming aware through breath and body and finally sitting in awareness.
The Preliminaries: Diet, Lifestyle and Relationships
The preliminaries: how diet, lifestyle and relationships can be individually calibrated to bring integration into mind, body and speech as we steer between the two shores of anxiety and depression.
The Practice Session
We will utilize all the yogic tools we speak about on Saturday so we can actualize the experience of emotional stability. A short talk will close out any additional needed explanations at the end. All levels of healthy practitioners are welcome. If you have special injuries or needs you may also observe the practice. It can be just as powerful.
Finding that the logic inherent within wisdom and compassion equates with love and intelligence. This is the deeper healing, where we end up when we have learned the logic of the body as correct action, breath as correct speech and mind as superior contemplation.
