Ayurvede Cooking Class: 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.
