A srotas is a physical and energetic pathway along which the doshas—vata, pitta and kapha—move throughout the body, allowing systems, organs and tissues to perform their various functions and interact. Prana vaha srotas is the life-carrying channel, the respiratory system of the body. Respiratory allergies, runny nose and sneezing, breathlessness and snoring, among other disorders, are all indications that the function of prana vaha srotas is being affected by one's diet, lifestyle, environment, or other factors.
In part one of two live online webinars, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, will introduce you to the structure, function and significance of prana vaha srotas. He will guide you through an Ayurvedic clinical assessment of this life-carrying channel.
- What can looking at the fingers, nails and tongue reveal about the health of the lungs?
- What questions should we ask of our clients or ourselves to quickly and accurately assess the state of this critical srotas?
- What does a healthy lung sound like through a stethoscope?
- How do we manually percuss the chest wall?
From the comfort of your home, you will have a bird's-eye view of Vasant Lad conducting a traditional Ayurvedic assessment on a client, visually and verbally guiding you through the process in a highly informative yet approachable style of teaching. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions about the topic to Vasant Lad, who will answer them during the course of the webinar.
