An Introduction to Ayurveda & Establishing a Daily Routine
Saturday, September 29, 2018
InTune Yoga Wellness
Ivory Ridge Clubhouse, 32 E Clubview Lane, Lehi, UT
Cost is $35
Ayurveda has two goals: staying healthy and healing imbalance. This workshop will introduce ayurvedic principles that can do both.
Topics to be covered:
- What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a complete medical system from the same origins of yoga. It can heal or manage most all imbalances. Learn how preventative pratices can spare you from excess imbalances (diseases) throughout the aging process.
- Balancing the 20 Gunas Learn how to work with qualites of the universe that exist in food, environment, everything! Use cold to reduce hot, or oily to reduce dry. This is the foundation of treating and preventing imbalance.
- Learn the Doshas – Vata Pitta Kapha Work with the fundamental energies of the universe in your body, mind, foods and lifestyle.
- The Importance of Digestion You aren’t what you eat, you are what you digest. How proper digestion is the foundation of health in ayurveda.
- Creating Balance Through Daily Routine When you sleep, eat, exercise, etc can have a profound effect on your life. Learn proper routines for health and happiness!
If you are passionate about health, nature and perhaps even yoga, this workshop is for you! Register online to receive your registration packet.
Ghee and Chai Party
October 6, 2018
$10 (PayPal below or cash at the door)
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!
