Part 2 of a conversation with the poetic Ayurvedic practitioner Balaram Chandra das, where we dig into some of the challenges of being a responsible teacher, models of education and how they work (or don't) in yoga and Ayurveda, as well as multiple Ayurvedic concepts, including springtime Ayurvedic concepts and care.
• Balaram’s familial history of curanderos (healers), and how he’s stepping into his lineage as a healer through Ayurveda
• Being introduced to Ayurveda through the food science of cooking for best digestion, and learning how to cook for his guru’s Ayurvedic diet
• The unusual experience of his first encounter with an Ayurvedic practitioner
• The impossibility of separating philosophy and practicality of Ayurveda, and the challenges of being a responsible teacher
• Ayurveda’s holistic perception of your experience, including all of your abilities, limitations and culture
• Giving clients the option of perceiving reality differently through consistent regular association and digestible amounts of theory
• I ask Balaram for his “quick and dirty Ayurvedic springtime tips”, and he gives us a wonderful explanation of why there is no one prescription for springtime
• He even carries it through to summertime Ayurvedic practices
