Sunday, March 18th, 3 to 5 pm – An Introduction to Ayurveda:
Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and is known as the Science of Life. Have you heard about Ayurveda before, but not really understood what the terms dosha, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha mean? In this introductory workshop, we will explore the qualities of the different doshas and complete an Ayurvedic constitution quiz for you to determine your own constitution. We will also learn about ways to keep the doshas in balance in the different seasons as well as through daily routines.
Sunday, March 25th, 3 to 5 pm – An Introduction to Ayurvedic Nutrition and Principles:
Do you experience symptoms such as gas, bloating, belching, or heartburn after eating? Do you experience occasional constipation, diarrhea or upset stomach? For many of us, we have taken these symptoms to be ordinary, regular side effects of eating. However, we truly should have no symptoms or side effects after eating. When the body does produce conditions such as gas or bloating, it is a sign that either we are eating something or in some way that does not agree with our body. According to Ayurveda, all disease originates in the digestive system, which is why it is so important to understand key Ayurvedic principles around cooking and eating. In this workshop, you will learn about practical steps you can take to improve your digestion and bring balance to your body and mind.
Sunday, April 8th, 3 to 5 pm – Incorporating Ayurvedic Cooking into Your Daily Life:
One of the most powerful steps you can take to bring balance into your life is through incorporating Ayurvedic cooking principles into your meals at home. In this workshop, we will discuss meal planning and easy ways to incorporate Ayurvedic cooking into your daily life. We will step into the kitchen, as well, and prepare ghee for you to take home with you.
