Ayurveda 101: How to Eat Course, Class 2

  • The Assemblage 114 East 25th Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

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. 
*Attendance at each class in not required, though encouraged. Classes may be purchased individually as well. 

January 24 | Class Two: Six Tastes Theory / 7-9PM
Each taste is an expression of Prana - a universal Life-Love-Evolutionary Force - through the form of elemental building blocks of Nature. When person consumes the proper amount of each taste for their particular constitution and/or to heal their imbalance, the body (mind and consciousness) will respond with the production of healthy tissue and normal physiology. If there is too much or too little of any taste, the body is going to respond with imbalance or disease. In this class, we will explore Ayurvedic taste theory, examining the six tastes - sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent - and identify how to use them to regulate digestive capacity through anabolic, metabolic and catabolic means.
