As we relax into the space of the day, we will reflect on the importance of self-care to benefit not only ourselves, but all beings, especially those we are closest to. The day will include some discussion based on the principles of Āyurveda and Yoga philosophy, movement activities, mediation, and self-massage of the face, hands, and feet. A simple, healing lunch will be provided! This retreat will give you the opportunity to slow down and be, and provide tools to continue the practices on your own.

Cultivating Mental & Emotional Well-being

Understanding The Qualities Of The Mind

Saturday, February 29th ✺ 9:30am-12:30pm

In Āyurveda and Yoga philosophy we do not separate the mind from the body. What affects one, affects the other. The human soul, or spirit, is said to be linked to the body-mind, but not limited by it. The mind plays an important role in the cause of disease, and its’ treatment. Mental and emotional stress affects the physical body, and physical pain affects the mind and spirit. When we look at the body-mind-spirit as a complete whole, we are better able to determine what we uniquely need to thrive, as well as the root cause of disease. In this workshop we will explore the three main qualities of the mind, and how to cultivate mental and emotional well-being through diet and lifestyle.

In-home Classes & Private Group Workshops

These in home (or workplace) workshops are a great opportunity to connect with friends and your inner self. They can also be held at a studio or other community space. We will spend a few hours learning about Āyurveda in a relaxed atmosphere that facilitates experiential learning. The workshop can be tailored to your group’s needs and specific areas of interest. We will discuss such things as daily and seasonal routine, the art and importance of self-care, dietary guidelines for different constitutions and stages of life, and other foundational Āyurvedic principles. The event could include cooking, Āyurvedic self oil massage, prānāyāma (breath-work), or yogāsana (postures).
