It's here! 

January, 19th 5:30-7:30PM

Stay warm and bright this winter with a strength building and playful practice to nurture and pacify Kapha Dosha. 

In Ayurveda the passage of the seasons marks a sacred cycle that deeply affects our bodies, hearts, and state of mind. Winter and Early Spring are considered Kapha time. Kapha’s qualities are cold, damp and heavy. This can leave us feeling heavy, stiff and depressed. In this workshop we will learn how by using the principles of Ayurveda we can restore balance to groggy Kapha through a light-hearted, strength-building and playful practice.

If you are needing a pick me up 

this winter- join us!


In this workshop we will discuss:

  • The nature of Kapha dosha, and how it affects all of us in the winter and early spring.
  • How asana affects the pranic body the psychology of Kapha dosha.
  • How to modify our asana practice to balance and restore our Kapha dosha.
  • Heart-based meditation

Rachel is back to do more individual consultations and follow-ups. 


Individual sessions offer you the opportunity to apply the wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda directly to your life in a way that is tailored to your specific needs. These healing modalities are holistic, and therefore will consider the entire picture of your health: body, mind, and spirit. These sessions will be collaborative in nature and together we will discover what is at the root of your symptoms and imbalances.

$70 for a 1-hour return consultation.

Healing is a process and it takes time. And so, for your first session, you will receive a thorough intake to assess your needs and form a plan based on those needs. Please plan for at least 1.5 hours for your initial consultation. After this subsequent visits of either half hour or an hour will be planned. During your session, you will receive instruction and recommendations on how to apply specific practices on a daily basis in your life.

Transition into Fall with a rejuvenating asana practice to ground Vata, rejuvenate the nervous system, build strength and immunity and prepare yourself for the coming of winter.

In Ayurveda the passage of the seasons marks a sacred cycle that deeply affects our bodies, hearts and state of mind. Autumn is considered Vata time. Vata's qualities are cold, dry and light. This can leave us nervous, overwhelmed and even exhausted. In this workshop we will learn how by using the principles of Ayurveda we can restore balance to aggravated Vata With both strength and relaxation.    

If you are wanting to stay healthy and strong this fall come and play!

In this workshop we will discuss:

  • The nature of vata dosha and how it affects all of us in the Autumn, or really anytime there is a big change in temperature.


  • How asana affects the pranic body.
