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
