The most wonderful time of the year can be a challenging time of the year!! The holidays season can be extremely stressful with making decisions about parties to attend and family gatherings, gift giving, eating holiday foods and enjoying the festivities with a beverage or two!
All of these activities can create anxiety and when we are in a state of anxiety, stress and worry, we are unable to make the best decision and subsequently we do not feel our best and brightest.
Ayurveda, known as the sister science of Yoga is the traditional healing system from India. Ayurveda is very holistic and looks at many different ways to care for your body, mind and spirit. When you take care of yourself during these seasonal transitions, you improve your well-being and thus bring peace and happiness into your life.
This is the “Kapha” and “Vata” time of the year in Ayurveda. “Vata” is described as movement and this is when the cool winds blow in and change the season. When the season changes, our bodies respond to this change. “Kapha” is described as dense and earthy and these characteristics help to ground us when the cool air moves in. When Kapha and Vata are out of
balance we can feel sluggish, ungrounded, scattered and simply want to hibernate underneath the covers.
The focus of this workshop is to learn the importance of physical yoga practices, food choices, daily routines, mudras, chants and meditation through an Ayurvedic lens to help you maintain health, balance and happiness through the “Vata” and “Kapha” season so that you can truly
enjoy this time of year!
The workshop will end with an opportunity to share recipes and sample tasty Ayurvedic treats that you can easily recreate in your own home kitchen!
(Attendees who book a private Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultation withKimberly ($200.00 value) will receive a $30.00 discount off of the workshop)
