Ayurvedic Practices – Ayurveda is a holistic lifestyle practice developed in India over 3,000 years ago and part of mainstream medicine in India with over 700,000 practitioners. It is based on the belief that wellness requires a balance between mind, body, and spirit. The classes and workshops offered will help the client identify their body type (called their dosha) and teach nutritional and lifestyle practices to balance the doshas thereby achieving benefits such as weight loss, reduced stress, and more vitality.
Meditation – Meditation is a learned technique that allows a person to achieve mental clarity, emotional calmness, and enhanced creativity. Meditation has been a part of the world’s wisdom traditions since antiquity but it is not a religious practice. The essence of meditation is to train our minds for greater performance in a similar way that fitness programs develop physical strength and endurance. The teachers at Habitual Health typically train clients in a mantra-based practice but can incorporate other methods such as mindfulness.
Breathing Techniques – Breathing is a natural function of the body but anyone that has experienced shortness of breath when stressed can attest that it is also affects your mental state. Many of us have developed bad breathing habits that contribute to poor health and reduced mental energy levels.
