Have you ever felt like your diet or exercise routine just doesn't seem to work for you?

Do you struggle with stress and finding a career that truly aligns with your values and abilities? Do you sometimes find it difficult to connect with the people around you?

Understanding your mind-body type can be the key to unlocking answers to all of these questions. Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine, teaches us that each individual has a unique mind-body type, or dosha, which determines our physical, mental, and emotional characteristics.

In this online course, we will guide you through the fundamentals of Ayurveda and help you discover your mind-body type. With this knowledge, you will be able to tailor your diet, exercise routine, and work environment to suit your specific needs. You will also gain insights into your own attitudes and behaviors, as well as those of others, improving your relationships and overall well-being.

Discover your mind-body type and what you should eat, exercise and work for better health and life
