F l o w is a series of workshops that teach us to ride nature’s waves, so we can effortlessly flow through each day, season and year, using ancient Ayurvedic and Yogic self-care practices.

 

These routines and practices not only improve our overall health and wellness, but most importantly deepen the experience of self-knowledge; of knowing intimately our body, mind and spirit, and how to care and love these compassionately and fully.

A steady routine of small healthy habits performed consistently with the rhythms of nature, has immense cumulative benefits in our lives.

In Ayurveda, Daily Routine (‘Dinacharya’ in Sanskrit) and Seasonal Routines (‘Ritucharya’) are the foundation for vibrant health, happiness and spiritual advancement.

This workshop series is designed to educate you on the fundamentals of a morning routine, night time routine and seasonal routine, and how to make mindful choices throughout the day that keep us in flow with natures pulse. The workshops complement each other but can be attended as a stand-alone.

Throughout the workshops we’ll learn the rhythms of the body in terms of the ancient Ayurvedic Body clock, and the modern science view of the circadian rhythm. Learn how to wake feeling refreshed, how to get deep nourishing sleep and how to move through the year in perfect health to prevent colds, flus and end of year burn out.

We will explore these practices in a fun, embodied and open-minded way. Each workshop will be a balance of experience and knowledge. You’ll receive detailed handouts including tips from the workshop, recipes and gift packs to support you in finding your own flow.
