Course Overview:

Knowledge of diet and food (Ahara Vijana) are recognized as one of the most important factors in maintaining good health. Diet is just as much important as lifestyle and herbal medicines. Many people seek a dietary and lifestyle plan that supports high-level wellness and mental/spiritual evolution, rather than just physical wellness. The ancient Ayurvedic diet plan is a model of life-affirming principles, based on a Sattvic lifestyle, which are highly adaptable to individual needs. Sattva is not just a state of mind; it is a highly evolved lifestyle.

Transliterated from Sanskrit, Sattva means the path of equilibrium and essence. Food are analysed by their qualities (energetics), and their effect on the doshas. They act according to its various energetics or therapeutic properties, although its properties are often less specific and its actions less drastic than those of medicine. Nevertheless, food acts as a foundation to medicine. It is sometimes slower to take effect, but more profoundly affects all system of the body.

If diet is used correctly for prevention and treatment, other medicines are required less, if at all. This does not mean, of course, that dietary advices are all that is required. Certainly, other therapies are more effective when based on a solid dietary foundation. Since ancient times, Ayurveda has been able to diagnose disease with pin-point accuracy and categorise food as medicine. Ayurvedic cuisine can be both tasty as well as healthy. The course will give participants a good understanding of the dietary principles of Ayurveda and the correct combination of food. Participants can also learn how to make some of the favourite dishes from our Ayurvedic kitchen.
