Ayurveda is “the science of life”. It is the ancient holistic science of India which aims at a total harmony of Mind, Body, and Spirit in balance with nature’s rhythms. It believes that true health is adjusting for everything that modern day life throws at us by bringing your body back to how it was when you were born so it can heal itself.

Ayurveda teaches that healthy digestive fire is the other main key to sustained health. Imbalances can present themselves as anxiety, stress, insomnia, depression, and weight gain to name a few. To achieve the needed balance and healthy digestion, Ayurveda encourages us to eat specific foods, herbs and spices which will bring our particular bodies into better balance. It encourages specific yoga poses, pranayama practice, meditation and walking in nature.

Come by for a lunch and learn to get an intro to this ancient practice. Curiosity encouraged!
