About the event

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing system, developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. The Sanskrit word Ayurveda means knowledge of life and its focus is to live in harmony with nature's rhythms. Perfect health is defined as a state of balance between mind, body, spirit, and social well-being.

This workshop, taught by Kim of Hello Healthi, will bring together many different aspects of Ayurveda, including  bodywork, breathwork, yoga asana, food choices, cooking ideas and daily lifestyle practices. Kim will share this ancient wisdom and explain theoretically and practically  how it can be implemented in this day and age.  

Theory will include understanding the 3 Doshas, 5 elements, 6 tastes, 7 dhatus,  digestive fire ( agni ) and the toxins in our systems ( Ama ). You will learn how to manage this for your own unique balance of optimal health within your daily life.  

The event takes place over an entire weekend; you may attend individual workshops separately or immerse yourself in the learning offered at the entire event for a reduced price. 

Workshops are R380 per session or R1200 for all 4 sessions. This fee includes a digital copy of the relevant notes and recipes.

Kim will also offer personal one-on-one assessments  as additional tool by prior booking. Please contact her directly by emailing kimvanniekerk639@gmail.com to arrange this.
