Women’s Health: An Ayurvedic Perspective

Integrating the teachings of ayurveda into our daily life can yield tremendous health benefits at every level of our being. In considering women’s health from an ayurvedic perspective, it is important to first understand the spiritual and philosophical foundations of this vast body of knowledge, and then create a plan to integrate ayurveda’s practical teachings to gain greater self-awareness, health, and well-being.

Ayurveda draws on the more holistic Eastern approach to healing that acknowledges symptoms while also exploring aspects of life such as diet and lifestyle and how they can greatly enhance the restoration of optimal health and well-being. In this view, symptoms serve as an invitation to assess what is occurring below the surface, and with that awareness, bring about lasting change and long-term healing.

In this engaging livestream with ayurvedic practitioner and yoga teacher Kathryn Templeton, learn how the seasons of life apply to women’s health—from the onset of menses, through the reproductive years, and beyond to the wisdom years. Kathryn will offer diet and lifestyle recommendations to support health and well-being at each stage, including specific asana and pranayama practices, tips for enhancing digestion, and recipes for supportive herbal teas and oils.

Learn how to embrace the seasons of life and the timeless teachings of ayurveda for more balance, health, and vitality at every stage of your life.
