This lesson is an invaluable introduction to the self care practices of Ayurveda.  We will dive more deeply in later lessons.  This word, Dinacharya, is how we begin to align our biorhythms with the larger forces of nature.  These practices, in conjunction with diet changes, are what set Ayurveda apart from other modalities which use food as medicine.
