  • Introduction to Ayurveda- SPECIAL CLASS

    Introduction to Ayurveda-  with Beth Sanchez

    Saturday, June 6, 11:00-1:00 pm 

    Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old system of natural healing rooted in the ancient Vedic culture of India.  Literally meaning "the science of life" (ayur= life, Veda= science or knowledge).   Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga. Together Yoga and Ayurveda work together toward the goal of helping a person  achieve health, happiness and ultimately liberation.  According to Ayurveda and yoga, health can only be achieved by the balanced integration of body, mind and spirit with the changing cycles of nature.  In this workshop we will discuss the Ayurvedic secrets to health and longevity by providing the basic guidelines for living in harmony with nature.

Yoga Etiquette at Greenwood

Arrive Early
Tardiness to yoga class is disruptive and disrespectful to the teacher and other students. Aim to be on your mat and ready to go at least 10 minutes before class starts. This gives you time to relax, breathe and settle in. If you are a few minutes late please enter quietly and mindfully in between poses. If you are more than 5 minutes late, it’s best to chalk it up as a missed class.

Relish the quiet
A yoga classroom is like a sanctuary- people come here to relax and find peace. Honor this by observing as much quiet as possible. Finish conversations before entering the studio.

Please adhere to the Mobile Electronic Device policy
Mobile electronic devices are to only be used in approved areas. Be mindful that just seeing a cell phone triggers an anxiety response and takes away from the yoga experience.

Talk to the Teacher
If you have any injuries (past or current), concerns or contraindications, talk to the teacher before class. This way, the teacher can recommend modifications. Please advise teacher if you would not like to be adjusted. If you have to leave class early for any reason please tell the teacher before class starts and situate your mat close to the door.

Remove your shoes
The studio stays most hygienic if everyone leaves their shoes (yes, even flip-flops) outside the classroom.

Consider hygiene
Sweat is good- it’s a sign that you are working hard, and a healthy way to cleanse the body of toxins. However, if you are prone to heavy perspiration, use your towel during class to mop your brow (so you don’t drip on your neighbors mat) and wipe up any excess sweat on and around your mat after class.

Skip the scents
Many people have sensitivities to perfumes and scented body lotions; help us keep our studios fragrance-free by avoiding applying any aromatic products before class.

Stay ‘til the end
No yoga practice is complete without Savasana. Savasana is a delicious period of relaxation at the end of each yoga class. Your body needs this time to understand the new information it has received though practicing yoga. Please do not come with the intention to leave early. If you roll up your mat and dash out the door during this quiet time, you’re not only annoying your fellow students, you’re missing out on what is arguably the most essential part of the practice. If it is occasionally unavoidable, please notify your teacher before class starts, and keep these times to the exception and not the rule.

Trust the process
It’s important to maintain an open mind and clear-headed perspective as you enter the studio. You’ll not only maximize the benefits of your session, but may also gain fantastic insight and increased self-awareness because of it.
