Stay Strong All Winter Long: Ayurveda & Yoga Workshop

Winter is a cold, heavy, wet and windy time of year that naturally increases the water or ‘kapha’ element within us. This leads to ailments such as colds, heavy and blocked heads and noses, phlegm, mucus and fatigue. It is naturally a time to withdraw, reserve energy, stay cosy and toasty warm.

To prepare for it, keep illness at bay and feel your best, Ayurveda recommends a cleanse in between seasons (ritu sandi) followed by a change in diet, routines, and specific yoga and breathing techniques.

Here in Melbourne, the Summer season is a time of intense heat and dryness with bouts of cold and rain that increase as we approach Autumn.

Learn how to live in unison with this time of year rather than fight it. Adjusting your lifestyle, habits, food and drink, exercise, yoga and breathing can bring about major shifts to well being. 

Come along and join a yoga & meditation class aligned with Ayurvedic principles to bring balance for the season, and then settle in with a relaxing chai and yummy refreshments to cover:

- An introduction to Ayurveda and its core principles - Practical ideas of how to live in accordance with Summer and Autumn
