“Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced  health-care system in the world. It teaches that because the universe is comprised of the five elements---ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth---and so are humans, we are all governed by the same laws of nature. When we flow with the daily and seasonal rhythms that nature provides, then we can maintain balance.”          ~Kripalu

The goal of Ayurveda is to help us understand our own qualities in relation to the qualities of the greater world, enabling us to attain optimal health in a natural way. We’ll ask ourselves some questions to learn our own Ayurvedic constitution. With that knowledge, we’ll examine how our diet, routines, and asana practice can support us---creating harmony and balance in our system, or throw us off-kilter creating dis-ease (literally a lack of ease in the body.)

No asana practice and everyone is welcome.

Sound has healing properties for our body, mind, & spirit. Mantra, chanting, and toning have been part of spiritual practices for thousands of years because their power is recognized. Now Western science is agreeing. Every atom & cell in us absorbs & emits sound. Our body & relaxed brain vibrate at a fundamental frequency that matches the basic field of the earth. And it heals!

Pattie will lead a flowing practice by candlelight and the lovely Jenny Medina will bring her beautiful crystal bowls to accompany us with other-worldly music. Bathing ourselves in movement and sound, we can bring healing and inner peace to a mid-winter evening. Practice will be easy, suitable for all, & we’ll close with seated meditation as the bowls sing.
