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 food remedy, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, color, and aromatherapy to create harmony between the mind, body, and natural world. Join Alexa and Noël for a workshop to explore this ancient wisdom.
Noël will begin with a seminar to discuss the basic principles of Ayurveda, including:
A history of Ayurveda and it's origins
The 5 elements + 3 doshas
How to determine your unique body type and consitution
Daily practices (dinacharya) to bring balance to the mind + body
Basic diet guidelines for each dosha, and for the Spring Season
Once you are familiar with the basics, Alexa will demonstrate the relationship between Ayurveda and Yoga with a 1 hour yoga class and guided meditation. Through our yoga practice, combined with mantra and pranayama (breath work), we will restore balance to the body, allowing you to feel grounded, at ease, and energized. Alexa will guide us through a chakra clearing meditation, washing clear the 7 primary energy centers of the body, untying internal knots, leaving you feel strong yet relaxed.
Please bring your own yoga mat
After the workshop, stick around for a trunk show featuring the one and only Tanya-B. Browse Tanya-B's exceptionally designed yoga life-wear, designed for your body from the inside out while sipping on The Daily Good Green Juice by ALOHA.
Organic, vegan beverages + small bites will be served.
