The Art of Ayurvedic Nutrition

with Aruna Patki, BAMS, LMBT, NCBTMB, RYT 200

November 8 - 10, 2019

Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old holistic science, is the mother of all alternative medicine and the key to prospering psychologically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Join us for an enlightening weekend in which you will learn Ayurvedic diet principles and how to achieve optimum health.

Ayurveda considers tri-doshic theory (elemental theory) as the basis of health and disease. In this workshop, you will learn about the wisdom of the doshas (constitutions) and how they contribute to health. Discover the compatible foods for your prominent dosha and learn how to improve gut health with a balanced diet.

During this weekend, you will learn:

  • Ayurvedic dinacharya (daily routine)
  • Healthy ways of eating food
  • An Ayurvedic approach to food combining
  • The qualities and uses of Ayurvedic teas, herbs, and spices
  • Hands-on approaches to making Ayurvedic recipes, including a tea (decoction), a sweet dish, a mono-cleansing meal (khichari), and a vegetarian soup
