According to Ayurveda, food is medicine. The ancient teachings of Ayurveda are still relevant today and help us understand what to eat, how to eat, when to eat and why. Learn specific ways to stoke the agni (digestive fire), use spices as healing agents and combine foods in a way that promotes optimal digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients. Explore the digestive process from the inside out and the literal reason why “we are what we eat” through Ayurveda’s unique teaching of the dhatus – the seven bodily tissues – that create our ojas (immunity). We will discuss the right foods to keep the 3 doshas (Ayurvedic body types) in balance and learn simple tips to cleanse and detoxify. We will also practice gentle yogic movements that support digestive function and nourish well-being. No prior yoga experience is necessary. Cost: $125 , Early Bird Registration by Oct. 1: $100

Through gentle yoga, breathing practices and guided meditations we will learn to soften and unfurl our tense holding patterns, offering the opportunity to gradually shift the narrative of trauma into self-compassion and a new capacity to trust. Throughout the day we will pay attention to moving skillfully, embodying somatic intelligence and cultivating greater presence through fine-tuning proprioceptive awareness. We will practice movement as an artful, exquisitely subtle and integrated way of navigating the interior of the body and mind, to access the ancient concept of SOMA – the fluid essence of rejuvenation that dwells deep within. We will also touch upon cutting-edge findings in neuroscience that help us understand the effects of traumatic stress and how it impacts our delicate nervous systems. Cost: $125, Early Bird Registration by Oct. 1: $100
