Ayurveda 101 2022

Seasonal Self Care

The second workshop we hosted was an opportunity to reflect on our first workshop and add new content and focus less on detox. This time around, we dedicated time to our worksheet packets that were provided to yogis to fill in the blanks in the first half that covers the lecture portion.

The worksheet packets were effective in keeping focus on the topic at hand while encouraging more questions. Because Ayurvedic herbs and spices play an important role in the overall system of Ayurvedic medicine, we integrated more of that content into our presentation. We discovered that students in our first workshop had familiarity with doshas and were now eager how to apply that new knowledge. Covering ayruvedic herbs provided students with practical application.

Thyroid Warriors 2022

Yoga for Thyroid

Having my own battle with a thyroid disorder is what actually brought me to yoga. You can read more about my personal experience here. The workshop was specifically tailored to women experiencing thyroid disorders and to help them find healing through the practice of Ayurveda and yoga.

The information shared was and is not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease or replace or compliment medical advice. The lecture addressed topics such as overheating of the liver, ama, doshas, diet etc. As a part of the workshop fee, warriors received a gift that encourage healing of the thyroid mindfully and on an energetic level.

Glow in the dark Yoga 2022

Glow with the Flow

We had a blast with this high energy glow in the dark yoga! Our glow in the dark mandala was carefully painted by hand, literally embedding our intentions for the upcoming new year straight into the mandala itself.

Our playlist while loud and up-beat included light hearted themes to inspire and fill yogis with hope and new beginnings. While the flow was more of a Vinyasa, we integrated a lot of poses where yogis reach out (as if they are reaching for the stars). We really enjoyed seeing others eyes light up and feel like kids again.

Diwali Celebration 2022

Let there be Light!

While we didn’t host a workshop for Diwali, we did dedicate a class to to celebrate. Diwali is such a special time to recognize our own inner light. It is also India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year. Traditionally, the festival gets its name from the row of (avali) clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness.

By now you may have noticed that we love using themes to teach. A theme is a thread of purpose that weaves the various parts of a yoga class (intention, pranayama, asana, meditation, rest) into a complete experience. With each experience, we wholeheartedly give it our all because we truly want our students to connect to their practice and themselves.

Detox 101 2021

Spring Detox

The first Spring Detox we hosted was an Ayruvedic workshop open to all levels, beginners and advanced practitioners. The workshop was two hours with the first half as a lecture on yogic detox practices including Vedic views on detox, doshas, and some recipes.

We provided yogis with refreshments and snacks which tied into the topic of Ayurveda, and allowed for further discussion on diet after identifying our doshas. During our break we did a raffle drawing for a free prize for increased engagement, it was a lot of fun to get yogis involved after the pandemic. We offered tea to encourage yogis to stay hydrated after a detoxifying yoga flow with various twisting in the second half of the workshop. As a treat, rose petal jam and crackers were paired with the tea to help cool down after the practice.

Namaste and Thank You for Visiting Us!

We are excited for the opportunity to host a workshop soon!
