Join the founder of the AYS program, Kathryn Templeton, and ayurvedic specialist, Sarah Guglielmi, as they discuss the ancient system of ayurveda and its fundamental premise that each person’s individual constitution, or prakruti, is a unique combination of the five elements of ether, air, water, fire, and earth.
According to Ayurvedic principles, by understanding oneself, by identifying one's own constitution, and by recognizing sources of doshic aggravation, one can not only follow the proper guidelines to cleanse, purify, and prevent disease, but also uplift oneself into a realm of awareness previously unknown.
