spring cleanse:
30 days to wellness

4 weekly classes + weekend workshop
starts Wednesday, April 3 . 7:00-8:30p

Spring Cleaning. We all recognize that there’s something about the natural energy of spring that supports our desire to clean up and clear out. We desire to lighten the accumulation of winter, and spring is a time of increased energy to do just that.

Ayurveda views seasonal transitions to be important opportunities for cleansing and rejuvenation. The transition from winter to spring is a time to clear the excess heavy and cold qualities and weight that have accumulated throughout the winter and spring, and which unchecked lead to seasonal colds, allergies, and excess weight. During this weekend workshop we’ll take an Ayurvedic, food-based approach to cleansing and rejuvenation, a gentle effective approach will leave you feeling clearer, cleaner, and renewed.

ayurvedic consultations

Ayurveda, often translated as 'The Science of Life', is an ancient system of healing from India. This holistic system looks at how the five elements manifest uniquely in each individual and treats imbalances based on your unique constitution. The result? A modality that 'sees' you as a person, and not as your symptoms or disease.

Sva Sadhana: yoga & ayurveda

This nine month program is a training program for students of yoga who want to deepen into self-study and practice. This experience provides the tools for self-exploration, growth, and transformation within the supportive container of a community. 

The bodhisattva-warrior makes a vow to wake up not just for [her]self, but for the welfare of all beings.
