The Ayurveda Approach to Holistic Nutrition

Adaptive mindful awareness allows us to understand ourselves through different stages of life and across personal and environmental changes. Compassionate self-awareness anchors us to remain rooted, while building our resilience to enjoy greater flexibility and flow in the process of sustainably nourishing ourselves and others. 

 

In this course you will learn the fundamental principles of Ayurvedic nutrition in relationship to your unique constitution, the season, your innate digestive capacity, and lifestyle practices. Food is a way to harness the power of self-love and self-connection. As we cultivate presence, practice deep listening, nurture our intuition, and eat with intention, we welcome living in vitality and in harmony.
