Summer Season Cooking! Pitta-reducing
Sunday, June 3, 1 pm – 3:30 pm 
You may notice that you don’t feel as hungry in summer asyou do in winter. That is a sign that our agni (digestive juices) are low. So during this time of year we especially want to learn how to eat food that is easy to digest, cooling to the system, yet energizing and nourishing. It’s tricky, as raw foods and ayurveda generally don’t mix. Come learn how to eat for optimal health in summer time. We’ll include some juices, summer soups and new ways to eat summer fruits. Cost: $55. Materials and recipes will be provided.

Ease into Fall, as Vata sets in
Thursday, September 6, 6:30 – 9 pm
In Ayurveda, seasons are the time of transition and the change from summer to fall can be especially challenging. Fall and early winter are Vata season (air and space) which means the elements are volatile – cold one day, warm the next, windy than humid, wet than dry. How do we stay sane with all the change? Simplify the diet, eat warm foods that easily nourish the mind and body, and prepare as much as you can in advance. I will teach you several Vata-reducing recipes as well as many Ayurvedic suggestions for staying grounded and focused. Cost: $55. Materials and recipes will be provided.

Come learn some sunny and bright recipes to fill up your hungry belly. Agni – digestive power -  is high during cold weather, which is why we crave warm stews and soups and nourishing drinks. Come learn the healthy way to fill up! (it’s not pizza and fried foods!). Cost: $55. Materials and recipes will be provided.
