Ayurveda for the Early Spring Season

Eating with the Season: Ayurvedic Recipes, Herbs and Spices to Support the Transition into Spring

Ayurveda offers many gentle healing techniques for improving health and well-being, and for detoxifying your body and getting it ready for the warmer months. This hour-long free workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the history and philosophy of Ayurveda. Participants will sample and learn how to make a number of seasonal (spring) Ayurvedic dishes, and the instructor will discuss common kitchen herbs that can be made into delicious teas and spice blends to aid in our transition out of the long winter. The instructor, Emily Celeste Watts, is currently completing her certification as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor at the Kripalu School of Ayurveda. In addition to foods for the spring season, Emily will talk about daily Ayurvedic routines and practices that can help our bodies get read for spring.

Plan to join us for this free class, and take away a host of recipes and techniques to celebrate the spring season!
