Ayurvedic Satsang with Dr. Ramkumar, Vaidyagrama Founder

ramkumar and me

Susan and Dr. Ramkumar at Vaidygrama in Fedbruary 2017

Join me in welcoming one of the most extraordinary Ayurvedic doctors in the world, to Baltimore! Dr. Ramkumar Kutty will visit us to share his wisdom and offer advice and support to help you create an ayurvedic practice, learn more about the vast benefits of Ayurveda and meditation, and how to apply those practices to your life. 

Dr. Ramkumar is one of the founders of Vaidyagrama Ayurvedic Village, where I took a group in February. We had an extraordinary time – and I do mean that literally. The transformative Ayurvedic treatments, peaceful atmosphere, sustainable buildings and more, helped us find a path to good health, healing and well-being of mind, body and soul. 

Dr. Ramkumar is a Founder-Director of Punarnava Ayurveda, an institution committed to Authentic Ayurveda for Universal Well-Being. He is a lifelong student of Ayurveda and other traditional Indian knowledge systems. Over the last 15 years, he has given talks and conducted workshops in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Australia and South-East Asia propagating health and happiness through Ayurveda. 

Punarnava Ayurveda is currently engaged in the creation of an experimental green self-sustaining authentic Ayurveda healing community on the outskirts of Coimbatore in South India. This village is working towards adhering to the principles of authentic Ayurveda and vastu; and will also engage in natural farming, use of alternate energy sources, waste recycling, environment friendly construction, water management and so on – the idea is to create an “optimum healing environment”.

This event is donation-based and all proceeds will benefit the Punarnava Trust in India, which you will learn more about during the talk. Please RSVP to susan@breatheayurveda.com.

xPittaCondiments_edit.jpg.pagespeed.ic.k8yfXswU1mThe seasons really dictate our food choices – and for good reason! We are intimately connected to the elements, so the more we align ourselves with what’s going on outside, the more balanced we feel on the inside. In today’s class we’ll go over the principals of cooling food and drinks. We’ll make juice, main dishes and a vegan dessert to help us keep cool and balanced with the season.  
Cost: $49. Class is 100% vegetarian with vegan options offered. 
Payment and refund policy: Classes are pre-paid. You can pay by check or I can send you a paypal link.

01-vegan-diet-plant-based-dietI used to shy away from insisting my Ayurvedic clients should stop eating meat altogether. But recently I’ve begun counseling on the reasons why it’s so important not to eat meat – and how to be the best vegetarian you can be. I’ll talk about how meat consumption is not only detrimental to your health, but also, of course, to the animals, and the entire eco-system. We will learn how to begin to incorporate meat-less days into your week and hopefully help you to transition to a full vegetarian diet. Don’t worry – I won’t preach! Just teach. And we’ll make a delicious plant-based meal together. 
Cost: $49. Class is 100% vegetarian with vegan options offered. 
Payment and refund policy: Classes are pre-paid. You can pay by check or I can send you a paypal link. If you cancel at least 3 days before the class, you will be refunded 100% or you can take a credit for another class. Cancellations less then 3 days before the event will not be refunded unless I am able to find someone to replace you. If you do not cancel and do not come to class, you will not be refunded.
