January 23, 2017: Today was the planning meeting for the 4th Annual Sivananda Ayurveda Conference, held at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas. The conference begins tonight!

Dr Bryan Miller, chiropractor, massage therapist and specialist in Ayurvedic medicine;
Paul Dugliss, M.D., director and academic dean of New World Ayurveda School and author of several books on Ayurveda;
Marisa Laursen, C.A.S., P.K.S., A.Y.T., lead faculty at the California College of Ayurveda;

Dr. Light Miller, N.D., naturopathic doctor and director of the Ayurvedic College of Well Being, and author of several books on Ayurveda; and

“While technology has succeeded in extending life, it has not necessarily increased the quality of life in the later years. The ancient health-care system of Ayurveda, often described as “the science of longevity,” aims to increase both the quantity and quality of life.” ~ Dr. Marc Halpern
This should be an amazing conference filled with inspired teachings from outstanding Ayurvedic teachers. We will explore how to apply the principles of Ayurveda to prevent disease, enhance our quality of life, and keep our bodies and minds healthy and young.
Stay tuned for regular updates!
