Ingredients for Healthy Living: Ayurveda Basics
with Letícia Padmasri, M.A., E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
November 11 - 13, 2020
Learn the concepts and practices of Ayurveda in a simple and accessible way, by exploring food as medicine for healthy living. Ayurveda is a five-thousand-year-old natural system of healing that originated in India and is a preventative and holistic approach to health. As opposed to the Western approach of treating only symptoms, Ayurveda addresses the root cause of disease. Following Ayurvedic principles restores the mind and body to a balanced state in which symptoms naturally fade away.
Learn the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda and discover your optimal state of health. In this first part of the program Ayurveda Basics, we will learn the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and of Ayurvedic cooking, setting the foundation to use food as medicine.
This workshop will prepare you for Ingredients for Healthy Living: Explore Ayurvedic Cooking, November 13–15. You will experience practical cooking lessons in which you will learn to prepare Ayurvedic meals and to taste food that is medicine. Receive 10% off when registering for both programs.
