Learn about Yourself with Ayurveda with Nora Gordon Sun, Jun 25, 2017 at 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Learn about Yourself with Ayurveda
Sunday June 25th | 5:00-6:30pm

Ayurveda, the traditional healing modality from India, believes staying healthy is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Instead, Ayurveda views the world through the lense of three main elemental forces, or Doshas. Each of us has a unique blend of the Doshas that determines our constitution. In this workshop we will begin with the basics of Ayurvedic philosophy then learn about each of the Doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha - and how they are present in you. Learn how you can design a lifestyle and diet in alignment with your constitution so you can lead a more balanced and healthy life in mind and body. Come away from this workshop with lifestyle tips specific to your constitution and yummy recipes to balance each Dosha. The world comes alive in a whole new way when we can see these forces at play in our natural world!

Yoga & Sound Immersion with Bob and Thomasina Fisk Sat, Jul 22, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This Yoga and Sound Immersion workshop will begin with a gentle yoga warm-up followed by an extended sound immersion experience.

Thomasina and Bob Fisk are mind body enthusiasts and have backgrounds in yoga instruction, music and mental health. They have been called to the power of sound through personal experience with the instruments and training in a variety of wellness modalities. They believe that the sounds created by the gong, singing bowls, shruti box and other instruments provide opportunities for mental and physical reset by allowing people to enter a deep state of relaxation and meditation. With the experience of a quiet mind and body, participants often leave the session rejuvenated and have a renewed sense of being truly alive.
