Ayurveda Master Class : The Tridosha

This class is part of an Ayurveda Master Class series (see: Vata DoshaPitta Dosha, and Kapha Dosha) intended for individuals who are familiar with the foundation principles of Ayurveda and are looking to move beyond the basic understanding of the Tridosha. 

According to Ayurvedic philosophy, all things in the world - the entire cosmos! - are composed of a collaborative network of the energies of the five elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether (Space). These elements are grouped into three functional principles that are likewise present in everybody and everything called the doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha; they give rise to all rhythms and patterns in the natural world, and govern psychophysiological response and pathological changes in the human organism. When these three principles are working together in proper balance, they maintain a harmonious physiology, and thus healthy state of body and mind.

Body, mind, and consciousness must be in cooperation in order to maintain balance and thus health; learning how to bring these three facets of one’s being into balance requires an understanding of the unique energies of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, as well as how they work together.

The Tridosha can not be separated. They are a team that works together, each with distinct roles and domains, interacting with and thus influencing one another. Together, they create organization which regulates Ma Nature’s cycles. The three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, give rise to all the rhythms and patterns in nature. The movement of the galaxies, the orbits of planets, and the spin of electrons, the revolving patterns of V/P/K can be observed everywhere. The annual seasons come and go in cycles, as do lunar months, as do days, heartbeats, cellular growth and degeneration. The lifespan of an organism can be observed in cycles. In the context of the human body, the Tridosha play a critical role in the maintenance of cellular health and longevity.

Each dosha plays a vital part in upholding the functioning of billions of cells that constitute the human body. Kapha is the force of growth and development, giving stability and structure to things, and maintaining longevity on the cellular level. Pitta is the force of transformation, governing digestion and nutrition by introducing heat. Vata, which is closely related to pranic life energy, is the force of knowledge and movement, and governs all life functions. Literally, the word dosha translates to ‘fault’ or ‘inconvenience’. It also means ‘to spoil’, or, in essence, what is going wrong.

The sage-physicians, whose observation of the Tridosha in action set the parameters for the Ayurvedic life sciences, carefully chose the word dosha for the three humors, because when the humors are in equilibrium, the body and mind is healthy and normal. When one or more of the humors goes out of balance, the body loses its equilibrium. The same humors become the originator of ailments. Hence, the word dosha: the fault, the culprit. It is impossible for a body to be diseased when the doshas are balanced.

In this two hour class, we will discuss:
*Functions of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha
*Manifestations of the Tridosha in the natural world
*Manifestations of the Tridosha in the human body
*Interaction between the Tridosha in the human body
*Techniques to return balance to the Tridosha Handouts may be given and note taking is encouraged.

A sample of Sattvic tea blended by Noël will be shared at the end of class.

Ayurveda Master Class : Kapha Dosha

This class is part of an Ayurveda Master Class series (see: Vata DoshaPitta Dosha, and Tridosha) intended for individuals who are familiar with the foundation principles of Ayurveda and are looking to move beyond the basic understanding of the Tridosha. 

(*note, Tridosha is a separate class in December and not included with the price of the series)

According to Ayurvedic philosophy, all things in the world - the entire cosmos! - are composed of a collaborative network of the energies of the five elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether (Space). These elements are grouped into three functional principles that are likewise present in everybody and everything called the doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha; they give rise to all rhythms and patterns in the natural world, and govern psychophysiological response and pathological changes in the human organism. When these three principles are working together in proper balance, they maintain a harmonious physiology, and thus healthy state of body and mind.

Body, mind, and consciousness must be in cooperation in order to maintain balance and thus health; learning how to bring these three facets of one’s being into balance requires an understanding of the unique energies of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, as well as how they work together.

The word Kapha comes from a combination of the Sanskrit words ‘ka’ meaning water, and ‘pha’ which implies flourishing. Kapha is a combination of the Earth and Water elements and is the force of anabolism in nature, governing all growth and development. It is the energy that forms the body’s structure and provides the cohesion that holds cells together. Kapha supplies moisture for all bodily parts, lubricating joints, hydrating skin and maintaining immunity, and is related to our sense of taste and smell. In a state of balance, Kapha expresses itself as strength, love, calmness, and forgiveness; out of balance, kapha leads to congestive disorders and ‘diseases of affluence’, as well as attachment, greed, and possessiveness.

In this two hour class, we will discuss:
*Functions of the Kapha Dosha
*Qualities (gunas) of the Kapha Dosha
*Sense organs associated with Kapha
*Primary seats of Kapha in human physiology
*Subdoshas of Kapha and their functions (Avalambak, Tarpak, Bodhak, Kledak, Shleshak)
*Symptoms of Kapha aggravation (physical + psychological) *Causes of Kapha aggravation
*General suggestions for treatment of Kapha vitiation and management

Handouts may be given and note taking is encouraged. A sample of Kapha pacifying tea blended by Noël will be shared at the end of class.

Ayurveda Master Class : Pitta Dosha

This class is part of an Ayurveda Master Class series (see: Vata DoshaKapha Dosha, & Tridosha)) intended for individuals who are familiar with the foundation principles of Ayurveda and are looking to move beyond the basic understanding of the Tridosha.

Body, mind, and consciousness must be in cooperation in order to maintain balance and thus health; learning how to bring these three facets of one’s being into balance requires an understanding of the unique energies of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, as well as how they work together.

The word Pitta is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘tap’, which relates to heat and austerity. Pitta is composed of fire and water elements and is the force of transformation in nature, expressing itself as the body’s metabolic system, governing digestion, absorption, assimilation, and body temperature. Pitta is especially important for healthy blood and skin and is connected to our sense of sight. In a balanced state, pitta promotes understanding and intelligence; out of balance, pitta arouses all inflammatory disorders, including anger, jealously, and hatred.

In this two hour class, we will discuss:
*Functions of the Pitta Dosha
*Qualities (gunas) of the Pitta Dosha
*Sense organs associated with Pitta
*Primary seats of Pitta in human physiology
*Subdoshas ofPitta and their functions (Pachak, Ranjak, Bhrajak, Alochak, Sadhak)

The word Vata is derived from the Sanskrit word 'vayu', which means ‘wind’. Consisting of the air and ether (space) elements, the Vata Dosha is the principle force of movement and communication that regulates all activity in the body, including muscle and tissue movement, the pulsation of the heart and circulation of blood, breath, along with how many thoughts an individual may have in a given period of time, and how efficiently food moves through the gastrointestinal tract. Vata is also responsible for joy, happiness, creativity, speech, and elimination.

Intro to​ Ayurvedic Marma Point Therapy
May

3:00 PM15:00

Intro to​ Ayurvedic Marma Point Therapy

Do you wake up in the morning feeling stressed, or find yourself feeling anxious throughout the day? Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do your joints crack, are your muscles tight and inflexible? Is your skin feeling dry and lacking luster? Ayurveda's acupressure system of marma point therapy and practice of warm oil massage can help your body and mind cope and release the regular stressors and strains of daily life.

Marmas are vital points located on the surface of the body that connected to both gross and subtle channels and pathways in the body system. They are ‘vital’ because they are infused with energy, what in Ayurveda is called prana, or Life-Love-Evolutionary-Energy-Force which is imbued with consciousness; marma points are where consciousness is expressed. 

Anatomically a marma is a juncture on the body where two or more types of tissue meet (i.e. veins, arteries, tendons, muscles, bones, joints); marmas connect nerve endings throughout the body. During this 2 hour class we will discuss the basics of marma theory and learn a number of useful marma points that you can activate on your own body to manage stress, calm your central and autonomic nervous systems. We will also learn the art of daily morning abhyangaoil massage, in addition to an evening foot massage utilizing marma points to activate detoxification, relieve stress, ultimately bringing on deep relaxation.

In the original Ayurvedic text, Charaka Samhita, it is written: 'The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to injury or strenuous work. By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age.'

The Sanskrit word sneha has a shared meaning of ‘oil’ and ‘love’ as it is believed the effects of a good massage are akin to the feeling of being saturated with love!! Each participant will receive a bottle of herbalized massage oil made by Noël to practice these techniques at home. Handouts will be given, but please bring a pen and paper to take notes! Tea will be served.

Intro to Ayurveda | a four-week course

INTRO TO AYURVEDA >> A FOUR-WEEK COURSE

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning life knowledge. It is the name of the world's oldest comprehensive health system, one which offers unique insight into creating balance among all realms of wellness - physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual - using tools like diet and plant remedy, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, color, and aromatherapy to create harmony between the mind, body, and natural world.

Balance in mind and body is divine, natural order according to Ayurveda. Balance is our true nature and can otherwise be defined as health and happiness. This compact, four session course will cover the Ayurvedic theory of the five elements, used to determine one’s unique mind-body type and constitution which can be understood as one’s true nature. Food and herbs will be explained through the theory of the six tastes and basic diet guidelines for each mind-body type will be discussed. Following will be an explanation of the anatomy and metabolism of the seven tissue layers of the body, how physiological imbalances develop along with how they can be properly identified, eliminated, and prevented in the future. We will tie all the information together with a session on lifestyle habits, how to structure your decision making throughout the day and the year with practical guidelines and calls to action. 

The goal of this course is to familiarize students with the principles of Ayurveda that teach how, through diet, lifestyle, and other methods, individuals can move towards a place of balance, of health and happiness. Each class will be a combination of lecture and group discussion. 

Handouts will be given and taking notes will be encouraged; light assignments may be given between classes. Classes are two hours length and will begin promptly at 630PM.

Kitchari Cleanse with Modo Yoga West Village

to Apr 15

Kitchari Cleanse with Modo Yoga West Village

For many, the journey to  Ayurveda arrives from the bountiful relationship with yoga, when we realize the practices of asana, pranayam, and meditation are shared components of the Ayurvedic life sciences. Another critical component to complete wellness, especially in the modern world, is Panchakarma: seasonal cleansing rituals. Cleansing rituals are critically important to urban people in these times. The Panchakarma traditions of India are ancient, yet powerful, as if intended to be carried into this active modern world to enable deep healing. Through Panchakarma, we are able to address many of the acute and equivocal factors of dis-ease at the roots of the matter. 

MYNYC is teaming up with Ayurvedic nutritionist and cook Noël Graupner to offer Modo yogis a unique opportunity to learn about Yoga's sister science, Ayurveda, and experience a comprehensive Ayurvedic Spring cleanse (also known as Panchakarma) which includes diet, herbal, and movement purification practices aimed at helping the body identify stored winter fat tissue as useable energy, resetting the metabolic function and digestive capacity of all the tissue layers of the body. Accumulated and stored toxins are brought to the surface of tissues and gently escorted out through elimination channels. The result of the Spring Panchakarma are empowered digestive and immune systems as well as a purified mind to transition gracefully and energetically from the heavy, dulled winter into the light, auspicious Springtime. 

The cleanse will be offered in 3-, 5-, and 7- day packages, and will include a daily 3-meal supply of Ayurvedic kitchari*, daily herbal tisanes*, a jar of Noël’s home made ghee*, a pouch of triphala*, as well as a daily yog classes at Modo West Villag. A complete toolkit containing Ayurvedic cleansing tools and oils (herbalized body massage oil, herbalized oil-pulling oil, herbalized nasya oil, copper tongue scraper, copper neti pot, thymed-neti salt) may also be purchased separately for $130. 

Daily kitchari and tisanes may be picked up at Modo West Village between 730-8am.
*All organic ingredients
*Background classes on Ayurvedic and Panchakarma theory will be taught in March and are highly recommended but not mandatory for the cleanse.

Intro to : Ayurvedic Spring Cleansing Workshop

In Ayurveda, an ancient medical science from India, toxins that accumulate in the body are called ama. These toxins result from the accumulation of impurities in our bodies as a result of improper diet, chronic stress, and exposure to chemical pollutants in the products we engage with and environments within which we operate. Symptoms of ama accumulation are lethargy, low energy, generalized aches and pains, lack of mental clarity, heaviness in the body, digestive problems (such as constipation, gas, bloating, acidity, heartburn…), weakened immune system, frequent colds and sinus infections, coated tongue, body odor, etc.

Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear + open physiological and psychological channels and to rid the body of these accumulated toxins. Spring is an especially important time of the year when nature re-awakes from the long, heavy winter and provides us with all the food- and herb-tools we need to rid the body of excess fats and heavy proteins which keep toxins bound to our bodily tissues! A Spring cleanse helps the body to identify stored fat tissue as useable energy, retraining and firing up digestive capacity within the GI tract, bodily tissues, and the mind. As an alternative to ascetic juice cleanses, Noël will introduce participants to the traditional Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse, or Panchakarma, routines, herbs, and kitchari recipes that are satisfying to the palate and detoxifying for your entire organism. You will learn not only why it is important to detoxify the internal organs and the sense organs, but how to do it yourself with a step-by-step practical guide. This is a great opportunity to learn more + join in on the group kitchari cleanse that will accompany Modo’s April 30-Day Challenge.

In this class, you will learn the basic principles of Ayurveda, beginning with the basic definition of ‘health’ as balance. We will discuss the theory of the 5 elements and 3 doshas, and take a quiz to help you identify your constitution, your number one tool to learn how to find and maintain your balance! Handouts will be given and note taking is encouraged.

Ayurveda Seasonal Eating at Just Food Conference 2017

  • Teachers College, Columbia University (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join me at the Just Food Conference ! I will be speaking alongside a number of innovators in the agricultural, food policy + justice, health and wellness space. My topic is Ayurvedic Seasonal Eating; I will be presenting on Sunday afternoon. 

Seasonal eating is a major tenant of the Ayurvedic (holistic medical) sciences. In this class, we will learn about the fundamentals of Ayurvedic theory as a guide to understanding why it is important to eat seasonally to promote health within the body and mind. We will explore the ‘menu change’ that Mother Nature is 'serving' as we transition in NY from Winter into the Spring. Then, we will examine local Spring seasonal foods/herbs and discuss how these predominantly bitter and astringent ingredients support health, as well as how to incorporate them into home recipes.

REGISTER HERE for Sunday and Monday's events

Ayurvedic Stress Relief

Ayurvedic Stress Relief

Modern life is incredibly demanding. Here in NYC, we are inundated with pressures from work, society, environmental inputs like noise, pollution; the intensity of living in the city that never sleeps may be raising our levels of stress without us even realizing it! For others, everyday stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life - we are a society running on stress!

Stress is one of the greatest threats to our wellbeing + overall health, influencing physiology, thoughts + feelings, then ultimately our behavior. Because it weakens the immune system, stress plays a role in the onset of just about every imbalance or disease, from digestive distress to the common cold to heart disease. Our high levels of stress are influencing the way we project ourselves as individuals into the world - fatigued, irritable, impatient, and generally unwell.

Fortunately, the ancient healing science of Ayurveda offers many solutions to combat daily stress. In this class, we will discuss inputs of external stress, how they influence the body + mind at a chemical level. I will introduce specific, simple + practical dietary, herbal + lifestyle remedies that can be easily incorporated into your daily routine to quickly improve your ability to manage and eliminate accumulated stress. The wisdom of Ayurveda gives insight into developing a strategy to gain control over the mind, enabling you to access the personal power necessary to create the experience of peace of mind. You will leave this class with tools and tips to bring your mind, body + spirit into a more balanced, satisfied + serene state. Come one, come all stressed-out New Yorkers !
