Nourish @ InYoga: Ayurvedic Cooking Workshop for Winter
Join Nicole for a deliciously interactive workshop that blends the wisdom of Ayurveda and the nourishment of wholefoods, culminating in a mouth-watering lunch that you will participate in both preparing and eating!
Learn about the Ayurvedic Doshas (individual body types) and how they may be impacted, as well as be balanced by, the food you eat.
Take home some easy wisdom that you can apply with the Ayurvedic herbs and spices that may already be in your pantry (hello Turmeric!), and learn some simple ways to:
- improve your digestion
- eat a diet that is more balanced
- cook a nourishing meal for you and your family
- substitute healthier meal options into your life
The workshop will begin with a meditation to usher in a sense of calm and steadiness, so you’re in the optimal state to digest a delicious lunch.
From there we’ll do a “Dosha Discovery”, where you’ll learn about the Ayurvedic body type, or dosha that most relates to you. We’ll prepare a nourishing, seasonal vegetarian lunch that will apply simple Ayurvedic principles for good digestion, wellbeing and balance of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
During the winter season, Vata (cool, dry, rough qualities) and Kapha (moist, slow, grounded qualities) predominate. We’ll enjoy a meal that is warm and nourishing, with special emphasis on kindling the digestive fire, which, according to Ayurveda, is the seat of good health.
You’ll take home some mouth-watering recipes to add to your home-cooking repertoire, a daily Ayurvedic routine for the Winter season, tips on yoga practice for your dosha, and some inspiration on how to live more in harmony with your body and our planet.
