Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley is honored to present “Ayurveda and Yoga: Integrating the Twin Sciences On the Mat and In Our Lives” with Deirdre Breen, which will take place on Saturday, February 10, at Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor, NY.
Practitioners of yoga value balance (sattva) as a way of life and strive to have that balance radiate out into their lives, families, communities, and environment. To do so, it is essential to be able to quickly assess when something is out of balance and have the tools both on and off the mat to reestablish sattva.
In this workshop, Breen will demonstrate how pranayama, asana, and meditative practices affect the doshas—kapha (earth and water), pitta (water and fire), and vata (air and ether)—and the gunas, or qualities of sattva (balance), rajas (action), and tamas (inertia). Individuals will gain an understanding of their prakriti (constitutional) and vrikriti (lifestyle) doshas and how yoga’s multi-limbed approach can reestablish balance whenever one is out of sorts.
Deirdre Breen, E-500 RYT, is an ISHTA-certified master yoga teacher. Her interest and dedication to health and healing spans 35 years, and her commitment to emphasizing yoga’s role in health and healing is paramount in her life. Breen’s training at Duke Integrative Medicine emphasized the mandate of health behavior change as the root of health and healing and led her to develop Dosha Coaching, a dynamic blend of health coaching, yoga, ayurveda, meditation, and addiction recovery.
