SPRING CLEANING WITH AYURVEDA: Balancing Kapha

Saturday, March 21st, 12:30-2:30pm with Loli Arosemena

Join Loli for an Ayurvedic Workshop to bring vitality into the season of Spring.

In the ayurvedic system of health, the Kapha season starts out in cold/wet March, then flowers into Spring, the season of growth.  Many people can feel the effects of Kapha in their respiratory system as an increase in seasonal allergies and catching colds.  In order to stay balanced and healthy, we must place extra attention on our body’s natural healing capacities in order to feel refreshed and renewed, rather than carrying the heavy, sluggish energy of winter into spring.

Learn how to adjust your lifestyle, diet and yoga practice to detox the body, cultivate a sense of renewal, and create optimal wellbeing. Enjoy a purifying and energizing yoga practice to clear Kapha and maintain vibrant health.  Take home different ayurvedic and yogic spring cleansing practices to suit your constitution.

Complementary Ayurvedic tea and treats included!

UPROOTING PERFECTIONISM

Saturday, May 23rd, 12-6 pm with Karen Sevenoff

Perfectionism houses gifts and pain. It can be experienced as meanness or dissatisfaction and we may feel its burdensome, destructive qualities in our relationships, in our lives. In this full-day program, we will take a compassionate look at some of perfectionism’s roots and chains as well as its wise aspects. Bringing into the light the very good reasons we strive and strain will help us to more clearly see what perfectionism’s particular knots and habit patterns are made of and why they are ours to most kindly take responsibility for.

This program will include plenty of practice in the healing arts: easeful yoga, playful movement, sitting and walking meditation and the wonderfully supportive opportunity to share within a sympathetic and like-minded group. We will invite awareness practices that honor the body’s responses and cultivate spacious renewal and a way towards freedom. We are often reminded in the work of recovery, to aim for progress, not perfection, and that is our intent in this spirit-led day of discovery and support.
