"I loved this program! I feel like I want to give everyone I know a basti," Kara Lukowski.

The internationally recognized institution will host its first training in Spanish in Bogota, Colombia in 2013. The ayurvedic program (medicina ayurvedica) will be held from 22-26 of January.

Dough basti's are containers prepared from the flour of special black bean (urud dal) that holds warm herbal oil over certain parts of the body. They are often prepared to hold oil over the chakras, thyroid or adrenal gland or the eyes. The prepared oil then impacts the functions of the tissues, glands and chakras. In this workshop students will learn how to prepare the dough and will work in groups of two building the dams on each other. Students will personally experience the wonderful benefits while learning to share them with others.

Ayurveda, which literally means "The Science of Life," is the healing science from India. It has been practiced for over 5,000 years by millions of individuals to assist the body in journeying back to optimal health. Ayurveda views health and disease as the end result of how we interact with the world, in terms of our beliefs, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, which then ultimately determine our actions. Actions in harmony with our inner nature create health, while those dis-harmonious with our inner nature create disease.
