Ayurveda is considered to be the oldest healing science as it originated more than 5,000 years ago. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means, “The Science of Life” and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. The term ‘solstice’ comes from two Latin words, the first being ‘sol’ which means ‘sun’ and the second being ‘sistere’ which literally means ‘to stand still’. This marks the longest day of the year when we are gratefully bathed in the powerful, activating energy of the sun. It is a time of transformation, action, and inspiration.
Through this interactive workshop, you will learn how seasonal lifestyle practices such as yoga, pranayama and diet can be used as your medicine to keep you balanced as we transition from spring into summer. A seasonal snack and drink will be provided as well as a guide on lifestyle and dietary recommendations will keep you cool & calm during the summer season.
