Preventive Health care and Health awareness workshop thru Ayurveda & Yoga

With the fast pace of life none of us are in a state to afford ill health. Each employee is absolutely essential for the optimal functioning of the organization/institution and a few days of his/her absence has the capability to upset the whole rhythm of work. There is also the escalating cost of healthcare which adds another important point to the need for adopting good strategies for prevention of illnesses.

Ayurveda, the “Science of life” has emphasized equally on the preventive and treatment aspects. It advises the adoption of a good diet and lifestyle for complete health. The central philosophy of Ayurveda is that the mind and body are closely linked, and that physical health can't be achieved without emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Ayurveda is the ancient art of healing that deals with all aspects of a person’s life as an entity. It states that the basic constitution of a human being is determined at the time of conception of the fetus. This unique aspect of a human being is called Prakruti. It is the natural constitution of a human being and this is unique to each individual.Prakruti is like your fingerprint which is also unique. The Prakruti of an individual remains the same from the time of conception to death.

Illness happens when we resort to diet and lifestyle which does not match our Prakruti and health results when we adopt diet and lifestyle which do not contradict or go against our prakruti. It is as simple as that. But to be able to determine what is good and what is bad to each individual, the firsthand knowledge of individual Prakruti is very important. Prakruti is the physical and psychological constitution of the individual, which is determined on the basis of three doshas. So there are basically three constitutions namely Vata constitution, Pitta constitution and Kapha constitution and their combinations. Ayurveda aims to provide detailed guidance regarding food and lifestyle so that healthy people can stay healthy and persons with health challenges can improve their health. Once we know what we are the rest of the management becomes cakewalk.

This unique workshop will provide insights into the individual Prakruti concept and will be useful to all health lovers. The workshop can be planned & structured based on the need of individual organizations/institutions. In the workshop an initial talk regarding preventive aspects and basic principles of Ayurveda will be followed by individual one to one diet and lifestyle counseling. All the participants will be required to fill out a detailed questionnaire to determine the Prakruti prior to the individual counseling.

Benefits of the workshop:
  • Understanding regarding the basic principles of Ayurveda
  • Understanding about individual prakruti
  • Guidelines regarding healthy diet
  • Guidelines regarding health lifestyle
  • Individual medical consultation if required
“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime”. So once we are empowered with the knowledge of preventive healthcare we become our doctor.
