Panchakarma: Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse Workshop at Sixth Street Community Center

  • Sixth Street Community Center East 6th Street New York, NY United States (map)

Ayurveda, an ancient healing tradition from North India,  recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear channels and rid the body of accumulated toxins. Spring is an especially important time of the year when nature re-awakes and provides us with all the food tools we need to rid the body of excess fats and heavy proteins built up in our bodies through the cold Winter.  

In this class, you will learn the basics of Panchakarma, or Ayurvedic seasonal cleansing, including practical dietary guidelines with reference to what to eat, which teas to drink, and which herbs to take to ignite Agni, or digestive fire, boosting sluggish metabolism and gently remove Ama, or waste, from the body tissues. We will also discuss rituals to incorporate into your daily routine to promote detoxification of the body and mind. 

Handouts will be given and taking notes will be encouraged! Dandelion tea will be served, along with a sample of a traditional cleansing dish called Kitchari.

$15 in advance | $20 at the door
