with Elizabeth Cunningham Bossart

As the seasons change, you need to empower your body for adapting to these changes.

Why? Because your body is in tune to the ebb & flow of nature. As the seasons shift, your daily routines need to be altered to accommodate these natural changes. When you do not allow yourself to shift with the seasons, you find yourself out of balance.

Through the practice of Āyurveda, you can learn to identify when you may be falling out of balance and how to bring yourself back on track.

Āyurveda is one of the most intricate sciences of mind and body. This "Life Science" is largely influenced by our lifestyle and behavior patterns. Āyurveda shows you how to maintain your personal wellness. This practice allows us to sustain a life of optimal health.

Your essential energy must be nourished daily to maintain your natural vigor. When you neglect yourself, your mental & physical self pay the price. The science of Āyurveda teaches powerful steps for personal balance & nourishment. Learn how utilizing these tools will give you the energy to take care of all that matters most to you.

One of the key principles of Āyurveda is to follow the seasons and eat according to what the season is dictating. Benefits of following the seasonal shift include feeling healthier, getting ill less often, having more energy and feeling the effects of the following season less.

In this class you will discover the basic concepts and principles of Āyurveda as well as how to align your diet and lifestyle with the coming shift from Summer to Autumn.

For those who are registered with Yoga Alliance, this class qualifies for 10 Continuing Education credits in the Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle & Ethics Category.

If you are certified through NAMA, this class qualifies for 8 TIA PACE credits.
