Herbs for Female Wellness
Come join us on the full moon to learn about herbs for women in their childbearing years. This introductory class will present ways to invite the green world of healing plants into your life. We discuss how to promote wellness of the female reproductive system during menstruation, pregnancy and post-partum. Specific remedies for common complaints such as PMS, irregular cycles, irritability, morning sickness and fatigue will be offered. Women will leave with simple and effective ways to prepare herbs as well as a greater understanding of how to care for themselves during these sacred times.
The Natural Integration of Yoga and Ayurveda
The natural principles of Ayurveda are integrated into certain systems of yoga. This synergistic combination provides powerful tools for radiant health and personal self-development. Just as diet and lifestyle can be tailored to one’s individual constitution, so too asana and pranayama can be adapted to one’s unique body, breath and mind. Through lecture, discussion and yoga practice, students will learn and experience how to ascertain their current state of health, consciously set intentions and then make appropriate choices. Ayurvedic nutrition and lifestyle as well as principles for adapting yoga practice to the individual will be covered, drawing from Sanskrit texts such as the Ashtanga Hridayam, Yoga Sutras and Yoga Rahasya.
