Ayuverdic Workshops with Anna
1. Ayurvedic Morning Rituals
Ayurvedic morning routines called are Dinacharya. We will go over the 5 rituals that are a must to being body & mind ready for your day! We will learn about and practice neti pot, nasya, tongue scraping, abhyanga self oil massage, & eye washing.
2. Ayurvedic Preparation for Summer
A lot of people are familiar with buying food that is in season, but Ayurveda takes this concept a step further and shifts the spices we cook with, the herbs we drink & the activities we prioritize with the seasonal changes. The summertime is the PEAK of our energy for the year, it is when the days are long and the heat is up! How can we stay cool and calm in the summer? What herbs and spices should we reach for? What activities should we stay away from? Which activities should we indulge in? What is the energy that the summer season is teaching us? We will cover all of this & more in the Aligning with the Seasons: Ayurveda for the Summertime workshop!
Ayurvedic Cooking Classes with Elise
Together, we will learn to make one of Ayurvedics staple ingredients from scratch- Ghee! After learning how to make the ghee, we will learn how to use it to cook our Ayurvedic dinner for the evening.
