"I took Dr. Manvikar’s all six Ayurveda class sessions at normandale community college. I found it to be a great class for anyone who would like to get a foundation of Ayurveda concepts. The class was very well structured, methodically taught and gradually progressed from introduction of Ayurveda to tips for healthy lifestyle through diet & nutrition. Dr. Manvikar did an excellent job in providing a basic understanding of how we are part of the nature in this universe and with this idea in mind, we were able to relate and understand material in all six sessions. This knowledge certainly provides a variety of simple and powerful techniques for anyone to lead a healthy lifestyle and enrich body, mind and spirit."
