Ayurveda is yoga's sister science that works through diet, nutrition and lifestyle to bring you & keep you in balance. So, if you ever feel bloated, tired, get sick, etc more often than normal... it gives you super simple ways (all things you probably have in your kitchen or can grab at Whole Foods) that can help keep you in check. It really works in conjunction to our yoga practice.
The Ayurvedic approach is to treat each individual by considering his or her unique psychological, emotional and physical condition. Daily living practices and lifestyle techniques are developed through Ayurveda to bring about a state of balance through true health and wellness.
This workshop covers topics such as:
• The Ayurvedic approach to nutrition
• The doshas, or physical constitutions of each person
• Nourishing Ayurvedic recipes & tips on how to cook
• Learn what tilts you out of balance and brings you back to balance
• The benefits of following the rhythms of nature, daily & seasonally
• Simple methods for creating more balance and harmony on a daily basis
• Yoga postures and flow recommendations from a dosha & seasonal perspective
This 2-hour workshop will be held on Saturday Sept 22 in West Falmouth and costs $35. Should be very informative. Not much movement involved, lots of information though.
Sign up at the studio or on-line HERE.
Emily Griffin lives and teaches in Boston MA but is a hometown girl, she grew up right here in Falmouth!
After trying a few different yoga classes, Emily Griffin became hooked! It just hit home with her. She loves the heat, sweat and flow of vinyasa yoga; it is truly a practice that builds a strong and healthy body while calming the mind and encouraging awareness. Yoga challenges her both physically and mentally and after beginning her practice she began to notice differences not only in her physical body but also in her life off of her yoga mat. She felt stronger and calmer – she became more present, gained the ability to let go and became extremely aware of her body. She began to find a space where her body and mind could be still and quiet and she then knew she wanted to share this incredible practice with others.
Emily is a RYT 200-hour and also is certified in assisting/ adjusting. Along with her 200-hour training through prana power yoga, Emily continues her studies through workshops & trainings and also with Boston-based teachers. Emily is currently working towards a ayurvedic consultant certification through kripalu’s school of ayurveda.
From Emily- "We'll figure out your body type (dosha) and how to balance it out... which foods (& how to cook them), spices (what each spice does!) and some other regimens that are all natural & simple to adopt on a daily basis. We'll also touch upon different yoga asanas & pranyama that can be extra beneficial for each type. I have personally found pretty big changes in my body & skin just by shifting how I cook & what spices to add in (I know, I'm a bit biased!)."
