East + West Approach to Wholesome Living
INSTRUCTORS: Ashlea Hartz & Katie Jacobson
TWO PART SERIES: Mondays – October 6 & 13 @ 7:30pm
COST: $20 each, or $35 for both with pre-registration
Part 1: Align With Nature:
As we transition from Summer to Fall, it is important to make specific diet and lifestyle changes to stay in harmony with the rhythms of nature. In this workshop, we will bring together Western Science and ancient Ayurvedic wisdom to explore the five-element system (Either, Air, Fire, Water, Earth). This system has long been established as the key to understanding how to nourish our bodies to their fullest potential. This class will bring these teachings to the modern dinner table by explaining how local, seasonal foods fulfill our nutritional needs to help us achieve balance in our body, mind and spirit.
Part 2: Optimize Digestion – Path to Emotional Freedom
More than 2,000 years ago, Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” Traditional Ayurvedic medicine suggests that proper digestion is the cornerstone for health and vitality. Research over the past two decades now confirms this, as it reveals that gut health is critical to overall well being, and conversely, an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of disease. Join us to learn how to evaluate your digestive fire and how to heal the gut through diet and lifestyle.
Support Systems: Yin & Yang
INSTRUCTOR: Heidi Sormaz, Ph.D
DATE & TIME: Saturday, October 11th, 1-4pm
COST: $55 — $45 early bird before September 30th!
Contentment begins with the felt experience of being supported. When we spend time acknowledging three things: connection to spirit, connection to our community and the realization of our own abilities – we feel supported – we feel better.
This workshop explores the internal and external support systems available to us in our yoga practice. We’ll begin with a yang style of yoga, exploring what it feels like to actively create physical and mental support from the inside out. We’ll finish with Yin Yoga. We’ll learn to just be, realizing our natural ability to let go and be supported by the world around us.
