Do you feel anxious, stressed, or out of balance?
Are you looking to learn how to tune into feelings, honor desires, and create harmony in your body, mind, and soul?
Ayurveda at BoPo
Ayurveda, the oldest continuously practiced system of self-care and self-healing, is a sister science of Yoga that looks at a person’s specific constitution or unique qualities and helps to see where this person may be imbalanced in health, mental well-being, and lifestyle.
Through Ayurvedic sessions at Body Positive Works, you can learn how to find alignment with your digestion, energy levels, and luster for life so that you can restore harmony in your body, mind, and spirit. It is a practice that specializes in healing the gut.
We know that when our digestion is off-balance so is our mindset, anxiety, and the greater vision we have for ourselves.
Ayurveda not only excels at teaching you what will nourish your unique body, but it can also redirect any imbalances to promote deep healing.
Please note that even though you may eat healthily, you may not necessarily be eating what is right for YOUR unique constitution. We are here to help you find what best suits you, your body, and your needs and desires.

Ayurveda is a life science – “Ayur” meaning life and “Veda” meaning science that originated in India more than 3,000 years ago.
Based on the idea that human beings are as much a part of nature as the elements, Ayurveda treats our mind and body as elemental energies: wind, fire, and earth. Each of these energies represents what is known as a dosha, or type.
There are three Ayurvedic doshas: their Sanskrit names are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth). The balance of these elemental forces shapes the nature of our body and mind. Although we all have the three doshas within us, most of us have one or two elements that dominate. Vata-dominant people tend to be energetic, agile, enthusiastic, and creative. If Pitta predominates, we tend to be focused, intelligent, and goal-oriented, with plenty of strength. When Kapha takes the lead, we tend to be calm, steady, and nurturing, with plenty of stamina.
