Naturally Restore the Balance Within…

Ayurveda is the Indigenous Indian Health Care System dating back to 3000 BC and beyond focusing on the health of the whole person. It encompasses health from the mind, body and spirit connection, working with nature to achieve balance and harmony so that we may live free from disease and suffering. Ayurveda works from the understanding of the five natural elements being air, space, fire, earth and water and how these combine to make up our individual nature. It is  through the use of yoga, massage, lifestyle, nutrition and herbs/kitchen pharmacy that we can realign any imbalances and maintain equilibrium for ourselves.

This workshop will begin with an examination of Ayurveda. We will discuss the elements of the universe and how these elements combine to form particular energies called Doshas. These Doshas are responsible for our interactions in the world - like a blue print. The idea is to keep the Doshas in balance to live in harmony with the self in the universe. One way we do this is through food. The qualities of the food we eat can bring balance to the energies of our bodies and mind.

 We will then learn about the qualities of foods and spices, exploring the best times of the day to eat, how to eat and what to eat. The workshop will finish with a hands on experience - creating and then enjoying a beautiful meal together.
