Pure Life Cleanse: Ayurvedic Approach

Where: Pura Vida
Category: Yoga, Relaxation, Nutrition, Healing, Personal Growth, Health, Spirituality, Wellness, Meditation, Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Cleansing, Detox/Cleanse

 We at Pura Vida Spa are excited to share the Pure Life Cleanse program with you. It is our intention to inspire and support you on your journey towards optimal health and wellness through this program. Whether it’s your first experience with cleansing, or one of many, our hope is that your experience may reveal a new level of awareness and understanding on how to best care for your body, mind and spirit, ultimately leading you to a life of joy, peace, clarity and vitality.

Cleansing (or detoxification) is a process of encouraging the body to release impurities, while at the same time nourishing it with select foods and nutrients. When properly assisted, the body can rid itself of toxins with ease and powerful results.

 

Pure Life Cleanse Pura Vida Spa– an Ayurvedic approach:

  • Ayurveda is the system of traditional medicine native to India.
  • The word translates as the science of healthful living. Its basis lies in the premise that, upon birth, we each have a unique constitutional makeup or dosha - a combination of nature’s 5 elements.
  • When our birth dosha is sustained it correlates to optimal health and vitality.
  • The body becomes ‘diseased’ when one’s unique dosha becomes imbalanced.
  • This happens through exposure to unhealthy or inappropriate diet, incompatible food combinations, lack of proper elimination, and emotional or environmental stressors.

Pure Life Cleanse: Ayurvedic Approach

When: From Apr 23, 2016 to Apr 30, 2016 all day
Where: Pura Vida
Category: Yoga, Healing, Personal Growth, Wellness, Meditation, Alternative Medicine, Ayurvedic Cleansing, Detox/Cleanse

We at Pura Vida Spa are excited to share the Pure Life Cleanse program with you. It is our intention to inspire and support you on your journey towards optimal health and wellness through this program. Whether it’s your first experience with cleansing, or one of many, our hope is that your experience may reveal a new level of awareness and understanding on how to best care for your body, mind and spirit, ultimately leading you to a life of joy, peace, clarity and vitality.

Cleansing (or detoxification) is a process of encouraging the body to release impurities, while at the same time nourishing it with select foods and nutrients. When properly assisted, the body can rid itself of toxins with ease and powerful results.

 

Pure Life Cleanse Pura Vida Spa– an Ayurvedic approach:

  • Ayurveda is the system of traditional medicine native to India.
  • The word translates as the science of healthful living. Its basis lies in the premise that, upon birth, we each have a unique constitutional makeup or dosha - a combination of nature’s 5 elements.
  • When our birth dosha is sustained it correlates to optimal health and vitality.
  • The body becomes ‘diseased’ when one’s unique dosha becomes imbalanced.
  • This happens through exposure to unhealthy or inappropriate diet, incompatible food combinations, lack of proper elimination, and emotional or environmental stressors.

Where: Pura Vida
Category: Massage Therapy, Thai Massage, Education, Earn Credit Hours

Thai Massage for the Table creates a partnership between you, your client, and the movements of this flowing modality. This course offers a unique fusion of Eastern techniques presented in a format that is friendly to the Western practitioner. Thousands of years of Asian tradition meet modern ergonomics and body mechanics to give you techniques that are creative, versatile, and powerful. With Thai Massage for the Table, you’ll learn a modality that’s safe, effective, fun to perform, and in demand!

Nayada’s BodySaver Method™ enhances the traditional Thai massage, allowing you to perform the authentic techniques of this modality with less strain and a reduced risk of injury. With Thai Massage for the Table, you won’t need to climb onto the table or floor to offer traditional techniques. You’ll use a natural rocking motion to avoid the stretch reflex, allowing your clients to relax and move with you, while leveraging your body weight and momentum to power the massage without strain.

Traditional Thai massage involves an enormous amount of thumb and palm pressing, but the Nayada Institute has applied theBodySaver Method™ and the “rule of non-thumb” to eliminate these common areas of repetitive injury. You’ll instead employ Power Tools such as the knuckles, fists, forearms, and knees to deliver a safe and effective massage.

Thai Massage offers a host of benefits for your clients. It includes range of motion techniques that increase flexibility and reduce joint pain, making it a great option for athletes and the aging. You can expand your clientele by adding a no oil, fully clothed option to your offerings.
