Ayurveda for Athletes

Ayurveda Workshop - Front Climbing Gym
The Front Climbing Gym
February 17th
1-4pm
$35

Nowadays stress is a popular term for our minds, but in ayurveda stress is depletion in the mind or body from overuse. It is common for modern athletes to work hard, play hard, which takes a toll on reserves and resources. Goals keep getting more extreme and minds and bodies keep expanding to reach them. The problem, ayurvedically, is that without proper nourishment and rest, eventually things will get stressed, depleted and finally break down.

Stress can show up in the form of intense training, not training…but still competing in a physical challenge, erratic training…or too much to do, heavy emotions, constantly pushing hard, fear and heavy expectations.

In ayurveda we would never ask you to give up these amazing challenges you love to do! Instead, we want to offer you an individualized way to eat, schedule your day, practice and rest that will help you build your vitality, strength and energy reserves so that you can physically and mentally afford to conquer these goals.

Join me for a 3-hour lecture on how to integrate ayurvedic routines and foods into your athletic lifestyle to become a stronger participant in your sports and in your life!

Ayurveda Workshop with Ghee and Chai

Ghee and Chai Party

October 6, 2018
7:00pm
$10 (PayPal below or cash at the door)
RSVP required

Your PayPal payment is considered your RSVP, or click the RSVP link to email your reservation

Come to this fun interactive workshop to learn how to make ghee…at home! Ghee is an amazing alternative to most of the cooking oils we are used to using. It is great for nurturing vata, pacifies pitta (while still kindling the digestive fire) and is light enough for kapha. Once you know how to make ghee, you’ll be cooking with it all the time…it is one of the best oils to use! It also has a high cook temp so it doesn’t go bad like olive oil can.

While waiting for the ghee to cook, we’ll throw together a nice batch of creamy homemade chai tea. Learn about some ayurvedic spices and how they can increase digestive fire…making this a great dessert for after meals.

Once the ghee is done, we’ll drizzle it over some cinnamon apples, bake, and have a nice autumn treat!

My goal is to create a nice community who loves to cook and use ayurveda. Please join us, meet others, and have some fun over the stove! Feel free to bring any homemade treats or fun beverages!

10am Ayurveda – The Art of Daily Habits
Let’s take a look at daily routine and habitual patterns. Ayurveda brings us back to the natural rhythms of nature. Sometimes we may not realize that there are patterns in our life that could eventually lead to imbalance and disease. We will examine our daily lives and the things we do on a regular basis and see if we can reconstruct some of those things to lead us into health and balance…and vitality and happiness!

11am Sanskrit and Chant for Yogis
Learn the language of yoga! To understand yoga, one needs to understand it’s language. Together we’ll learn the sounds of the alphabet so that no matter what Sanskrit word or phrase you see, you’ll be able to pronounce it correctly. Why is that important? Sanskrit is a vibrational language and the meaning is carried in the sound. If you enjoy chanting or learning about the philosophy of yoga, it is important to know the correct sounds. We will also do some chants in Sanskrit to practice using the sounds. Studying Sanskrit brightens the mind. Come feel the effects of this powerful language!
