PERFECT HEALTH COURSE AT CMC ASPEN ON WEDNESDAY
I will be teaching again the “Perfect Health” course at Colorado Mountain College, Aspen campus, starting this Wednesday, February 7. It is a 10-hour-long course based on the science of Ayurveda and the work of Deepak Chopra. It is taught in five classes. Call me for more details, 970 948 1602.
Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old mind body medicine, teaches us that all our experiences in life influence our genes expression at every moment. Therefore, our health depends on the choices we have made in the past and the ones we presently make.
It may seem ironic that I am using the word “perfect health” as I just come out of the flu myself! But here are two Ayurvedic based tools I used during the sickness to support myself and recover faster:
- I massaged my entire body, including my head and feet, with sesame oil to nourish my skin and help eliminate toxins. In the winter, our skin tends to become dry and looses its capacity to breathe. I did the massage in the shower and just rinsed with water afterwards. Sesame is a warming oil so it helps keep my body warm.
- I drank a lot of warm ginger tea that can be made simply by grating fresh ginger into hot water. Fresh root is always better than a tea bag. Ginger is also warming and cleansing.
These two techniques can be used at any time as a prevention or maintenance of good balance during the winter season.
Besides tips as these ones, the class will also offer introduction to meditation and breathing techniques.
