AYURVEDA FOR FALL & WINTER: Easy Practices for Optimal Health
with Emmie Stamell & Charlotte Ott
Saturday, December 16, 2-4pm ~ Ayurveda, India's traditional medical system, is a sister science to yoga and provides the lifestyle and dietary guidelines to help us harmonize with nature. In the cold season, vata dosha can easily be disturbed which leads to myriad health concerns ranging from dry skin to insomnia to weak digestion. In this workshop we will learn several time-tested techniques for assuaging vata and returning the body-mind to a balanced state of well-being. $35 or class card x 2 + $5
