Ayurveda 101 : How To Eat
a four-class series
There is really no such thing as ‘Ayurvedic Food’. For any food, taken as a single ingredient or a meal, to be considered truly ‘Ayurvedic’, the constitution and current state of the individual eating must be known, as well as the properties of the dish, so that the food is in alignment with the needs of the individual. In this way, ‘Ayurvedic food’ is unique to each person, at each meal every day, and comprises foods that will help create a balanced, relaxed, and clear state of body and mind. In this way, the Ayurvedic sciences consider content and context of food to be of equal measure.
Join Ayurvedic Nutritionist Noël Graupner this January for a series on the Ayurvedic approach to understanding digestion, taste, seasonal and daily eating, and food rituals, to build a comprehensive premise to not just what you eat, but how, when, and most importantly, why.

February 7 | Food Sadhana: Yogic Diet + How to Make a Plate / 7-9PM
*Dinner included !
More important than what you eat is how you eat. Ayurveda teaches that the types of foods one ingests has a direct effect on the body and the mind, influencing the consciousness of the consumer. In this class, we will discuss how to approach food energetically by understanding food qualities (sattva, rajas, and tamas), proper sourcing, storage, and preparation of food - touching on vegan/vegetarian vs. animal protein diets. We will discuss how to compose a plate that will support healthy digestion by learning Ayurvedic food combining techniques, then walk through exactly how to eat it utilizing all the senses for maximum digestion. Winter-seasonal vegetarian dinner will be served in this class, and we will eat together, applying what we've learned.
