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.
