The Perfect Health course offers a five-step exploration of mind-body medicine and Ayurveda. The course is designed for the general public who have had little or no previous understanding of these concepts. Each of the five lessons includes instruction in the practical tools and techniques of mind-body medicine that participants can immediately begin using in their daily lives.
Session One: Mia Scheid will introduce you to the foundational principles of Ayurveda, meditation, and yoga as well as the three primary mind-body doshas or personalities: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Through an in-depth questionnaire and analysis, you’ll discover your own dosha type.
Session Two: In this session on “Food as Medicine,” you will learn how to select the most nourishing foods for your mind-body type. Your instructor will also guide you in Ayurvedic nutritional practices that will help you maintain vibrant health, appropriate weight, and optimized digestion.
Session Three: This session focuses on the tools and practices of rejuvenation and renewal. You’ll learn how to identify and eliminate toxins that accumulate in the mind and body. In addition, you will be guided in gentle rejuvenating practices, holistic techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, a personal daily routine for balance and health, and the secrets of restful sleep.
Session Four: You will learn why emotional freedom is the key to our physical, mental, and emotional health. Your instructor will teach you the practice of conscious communication, which can transform your relationships and help you experience more intimacy and joy in your life.
Session Five: The final session delves into the healing power of the five senses: sound, touch, sight, taste, and smell. You’ll learn how to strengthen the body’s inner pharmacy by using specific tools that use each of the senses to heal, nourish, and balance your mind-body.
