Spring Reawakening

Detoxify with Ayurvedic Yoga

Saturday, May 7, 2016
1:00 PM–4:00 PM

Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, originated in India more than five thousand years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced healthcare tradition in the world. It is a system based on allowing the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to work to their fullest potential.

This workshop will help to reduce excess kapha, one of the three main dosha, or humors, that make up our physical and psychological constitutions. According to Ayurveda, kapha tends to accumulate in the spring and manifests as excess water retention, congestion, and lethargy. Squash sluggishness and promote vitality with a fun, electrifying, and gratifying Ayurvedic yoga practice that will leave you feeling vibrant from the inside out. Enjoy the lasting benefits of breath retentions, fiery twists, challenging balancing postures, and much more.

Larissa Hall Carlson will begin the session with an insightful talk on key Ayurvedic theories that will contextualize the yoga class to follow. The Ayurvedic principles you will learn in this workshop will take you to new depths in your practice and inspire you for the whole season.

This workshop will include postures, breathwork, and a demonstration. Ticket holders should bring a yoga mat and writing materials. Participants will need to complete this waiver before/at the workshop.
