About this course

Ojas is a Sanskrit term that can be translated as “vigor” or “essence of vitality.” It influences everything from our immunity, digestion, physical strength, and the health of our skin to our spiritual inclination, sleep, and mood. In a nutshell Ojas is the vital energy that rules our immunity, strength and happiness - three things we want to have in abundance. 

The concept of Ojas is integral to understanding Ayurveda as a practice. Many well known Ayurvedic practices are for the maintenance and rebuilding of Ojas, given its interconnection with strength, immunity and resilience.
