DEVELOPING BALANCE THROUGH YOGA AND AYURVEDA:
JANUARY 22-25, 2018
Coming out of your winter hibernation can be challenging, especially when it’s cold and wet outside and warm and snug inside. It’s important to embrace spring earlier, rather than later, to allow our metabolism and mind set to enliven and help melt the winter blues. Being aware of the foods we consume, the activities we enjoy and the frame of mind we adopt in this season is key to staying healthy.
In Ayurveda, this is known as Kapha season, the time of year where we must focus on uplifting interactions, warming and lighter foods and invigorating activities.
In this 3-day retreat, you will learn how to:
- Understand your unique Ayurvedic mind & body type and how to keep balanced
- Use seasonal foods and recipes to remain healthy
- Adopt new activities to invigorate the physiology
- Detoxify the digestive system
- Engage in a grounding and enlivening yoga practice
- Use breath (pranayama) to prevent sluggishness and reduce stress
This retreat is lead by Deacon Carpenter, Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist; Ginger Schechter, MD and Michaela Codding, E-RYT 200. To learn more about the faculty leading this retreat, please click here.
