The wisdom of Ayurveda, applied to women’s healing and health

Are you tired of running on ‘empty’, trying to balance daily commitments to family and career, always putting yourself last? Living the paradox of most modern women, who seem to have it all and yet are too exhausted to feel joyous and radiant? Do you crave a nurturing space of loving self care? The chance to delve into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda while holding and sharing a uniquely feminine experience with a group of newly found sisters? Then this Ayurveda Sadhana Weekend might be just the ‘you time’ you need!

~Make vibrant and abundant health a part of your daily life again - Ayurveda has so much to offer women. It can be used to prevent disease and resolve issues such as hormonal imbalance, low energy, anxiety, poor sleep, changes in life cycles and so much more.

~On this special 4-day-retreat, seasoned teacher Katie Manitsas will create a sacred space of trust, self care and holistic nourishment. This transformative training will give you the tools to bring your life back into balance and experience healing through inner medicine. Return home feeling replenished, joyful and abundant!

~Women of all ages, experience and health levels are welcome. This training is also great for yoga teachers who would like to gain a deeper understanding of Ayurveda and use it in their yoga classes.
