Ayurveda looks to uncover the causes of disease by addressing the environment in which the imbalance was formed. Winter invites a quality of stillness that makes way for introspection, a time for nourishing our bodies and minds and building physically and in relationships. The dormant and building qualities of winter flow into spring, a time for growth and creation.
Ayurveda in springtime encourages growth and makes use of the fertile bed created in winter. Learn how to apply Ayurvedic principles to your practice and in your daily lifestyle habits.
In this workshop we will explore lifestyle, practices, postures, and pranayama meant to support our bodies in the springtime.
Recommended Props: 2 blocks & bolster or meditation cushion.
A recording will be made available to participants for two weeks following the workshop.
