Ayurveda Center Newsletter
I have been absolutely remiss in my communication. How time flies by. Now spring has sprung, a cycle of Nature reborn. I want to share a little news with you, most specifically an offering of the newly named Happiness Program (formerly Art of Living). As an introduction to that workshop, the instructor, Jennifer Stevenson, will be holding a web class entitled Mind and Meditation. More details by clicking link or looking below.
In addition, there are some upcoming changes to announce, most specifically the upcoming departure of Heather Fraser, LMT, from our staff. Click for more information. If any one knows of a good massage therapist seeking a place to work, please let me know. I hope you will join us here at the Ayurveda Center this spring and summer.
Last, as always, I continue my studies in Ayurveda. For those of you who are wanting to take classes, I'm afraid it will probably be a big program offering in the fall on Monday nights and Saturday afternoons - a little like last fall. For those of you who haven't tried it, there is a Dosha Guru quiz that you can take. Click to read about it. It serves as a great introduction to Ayurveda and what it might offer you.

We have scheduled an Art of Living Happiness Program workshop on Friday evening through Monday, the weekend of May 16-19, 2014. Click here to read a general description of the Art of Living Happiness Program class. This description also includes a 5-minute video clip. You can click here to read about the Oak Ridge course and registration details for this specific Happiness Program. The centerpiece of the class is sudarshan kriya yoga (SKY), a series of three breathing practices; click to read more about it -- as set forth in a research summary article published in National Institutes of Health database. The authors conclude, "There is mounting evidence to suggest that SKY can be a beneficial, low-risk, low-cost adjunct to the treatment of stress, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, stress-related medical illnesses, substance abuse, and rehabilitation of criminal offenders." It balances the autonomic nervous system. The practice leads to positive changes in mind, body, and spirit.
We are so fortunate to have a full time international teacher, Jennifer Stevenson, to facilitate the course. Involved with Art of Living initiatives since 2002, Jennifer has taught hundreds of self-development and leadershipRead more: Happiness Program 2014

The Dosha Guru Quiz
Staff at the Maharishi University of Management have developed a dosha quiz which helps a person to understand a combination of the prakriti (our fundamental nature) and vikriti (our current state). The Dosha Quiz generates a 4-page pdf file that describes you. Its fun to take; and the information sets the state for learning something about Ayurveda. I hope you will try it out.
