Ayurveda: the "Mother of all Healing" comes to CBCC
Antoinette LaBarbera, local yoga intstructor, is out promoting Ayurveda, called the "Mother of all Healing" with roots that go back 5,000 years. Antoinette used to own the yoga studio downtown near Dagny's coffee house, sold it, and is now back to practicing yoga but also has something she calls her "Healing Ministry" located at 1616 10th Street. She's excited that the Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC) is now embracing Ayurveda. In her words from her blog:
"Ayurveda places great emphasis and encouragement on maintaining wellness and preventing illness through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs and spices. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance."
