Ah! Your Veda
Ayurvedic Health and Wellness Center
I have a full list of workshops that I provide, some of which I have listed below. Offerings change seasonally. Most presentations are 1 1/2 - 2 hours in length, unless noted otherwise. We just finished our winter series and demand for our workshops is increasing! I am currently working on spring/summer scheduling and will update event dates as soon as possible, so please check back often. You may also email me with any questions you have. Our workshops are designed to provide you with education, and some take-home tools that help improve your overall health and happiness. Please contact me if you are interested in hosting a group workshop in your home or business.

Introduction to Ayurvedic Nutrition - this class isn't about carbs, fats, and proteins. It is about how we can tailor our diet to meet the unique needs of our body. It is the literal "what, where when and how" guide to eating.
Kitcheree - What It Is and What It Can Do For You (samples and recipe included)

The Six Tastes of Ayurveda - come meet the six taste (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, astringent) and how to incorporate these into your diet as it applies to your Ayurvedic constitution.
Sleep Easy - Learn the importance of sleep; how it affects your health, and ways to improve the quality of your sleep. Do you know what time to go to bed; what time to rise? Do you understand the importance of nightly routines to improve the quality of your sleep? Sleep plays such an important role in both our health and daily performance, so don't fall short of a good night's rest.
Sugar Blues - we hear all the time how bad sugar is for us. Yet the sweet taste in Ayurveda is very healing for those with a Vata imbalance. But "sweet" does not necessarily mean "sugar". Come learn more how to manage sugar cravings while allowing the sweet taste to bring balance to your life.
The Three Causes of Disease and the Three Pillars of Life - When we, or someone we love gets sick, we always question "why did this happen?" Come learn the three root causes of disease and how to adapt Three Pillars of Life to promote healing, health and happiness.
What's Your Dosha? - An introduction to the Five Elements and the Ayurvedic Dosha's
Yoga Nidra and Meditation - These are both listed in the "Services" page under body therapies and instructional classes. I do offer a free presentation that gives a basic understanding and overview of what they are, and their benefits. But for a true practice of these healing therapies, it is best in a series of classes that are learned over a period of time, rather than a short, one-time session. As a society, we have learned to multi-task, function in a constant state of stress, and many of us don't even realize it, or don't understand the tragic toll it is taking on our health. I find this presentation helpful to groups that meet frequently (book club, supper clubs, ladies night out, bible studies, etc.), or small companies and corporations looking to improve the health of their employees.
