Ayurveda is an ancient style of traditional medicine from India and a sister science to yoga.  It translates as the wisdom of life or science of vitality.  If you are seeking an alternative for your health and want to learn new habits to support your on-going well-being, join us for this introduction to the world of Ayurveda and learn to apply this knowledge in easy practical ways to your every day routines.

October 16

5:45-7:45PM


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.


  • The psychology of vata dosha


  • How to modify our asana practice to balance and restore our vata dosha.


  • Heart-based meditation
