Learn all about Ayurveda, which is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems that was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. NWR will explore and facilitate an open discussion based on the Ayurvedic medicine belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
