    Ayurveda & You is a perfect guide for Ayurveda newbies. In this introductory course, you will discover your unique dosha (body type) and learn how to make dosha-specific changes in your lfie to build your strength and correct your personal imbalances to work towards optimal health. 

    • Learn the crucial difference between your current symptoms and your “original” nature 
    • Learn why everyone thrives only in their own, unique climate and the “triggers” that cause the doshas in you to imbalance 
    • Build your immunity and energy in harmony with this intelligence 
    • Discover the key to heal your current symptoms – or your distorted state of doshas 
    • What really are the doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha? 
    • ‘Get’ detailed “clues” that help you learn which doshas predominate in you 
    • Learn the all-important ‘Three-Things-That-Must-be-Known’ in order to heal and rejuvenate 
    • Learn about interesting concepts like junk smells and junk sounds that, in addition to junk foods, drive your doshas into imbalance! 
    • Learn practical tips and tricks to balance your doshas – and some of these are unexpected little surprises! 
    • Discover herbs to balance your doshas, which sleep discipline, exercise protocol, food choices and ways to play, work and meditate are in alignment with your unique prakruti… 
    • And, discover the biggest mistake you can make on the path to uncovering your unique physiology – and THIS is something that trips up even those familiar with Ayurveda! 

    You probably know you are not in a state of perfect balance or your native climate right now… 

    Years of imbalances and external stresses means we have been in a state of vikruti – or altered doshas – for quite some time. Even when we try to recall our “ORIGINAL” nature, we might be referring to an imbalance of five years ago!


    How do you heal your current symptoms and peel back the layers of imbalances to zoom into your native climate, from the inside-out? 

    And how do you make sense of all this intelligence in a meaningful way that impacts your life and those of your family?

    To help you discover yourself and to learn what works for you, the individual, the Ayurveda Experience is proud to introduce its new course Ayurveda & You.

    The course illustrates concepts in vivid detail, with REAL examples of healing from Marisa’s 20-year-old practice. It also contains a treasury of Ayurvedic concepts gleaned from the deep chest of primary texts, like the Charaka Samhita. Highly advanced, complex concepts clarified so you can put them in practice.
